The real story is that we make up rules to be fair to vets and the rules can be controlled too tightly and or too loosely to the detriment of vets by elected officials and civil servants. Vets are a little more than dump truck contractors to be used and discarded depending on the photo op. The system doesn't work and it does not matter which party is running it. Most vet groups don't get that. But, hey, enjoy the near empty VA offices in places were they are not heavily used...........http://army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,122623.msg1470964.html#msg1470964
Anyone finding the reopening and the establishment of a new VAC office in the Minister of National Defence riding helpful?
Agree. This was all Liberal PR and the hiring of more Public Service people in my opinion, who according to an audit are more interested in their jobs than service to those who employ them.
CP article above post:
Organizer Doug Roberts says his group -- which has about 400 members -- fought hard against the federal civil service that he says used technicalities to deny benefits to veterans, and it won't stand by to see a similar approach flourish under the new government.
Good luck on that.
A spokeswoman for federal Veterans Affairs minister Kent Hehr said the federal Liberals are planning to improve treatment of veterans during their time in office.
Trouble is the Liberals, the natural governing party of Canada, expect under Trudeau and his children, and their children, on governing Canada for 100 years so they have plenty of time to "planning to improve treatment of veterans during their time in office".
Hopefully some eugenics within the Trudeau family will vanquish what we got now and previously.
