With the Conservative treatment of vets and military procurement, I really hope my brothers and sisters in uniform stop supporting them this time around.
So all parties agreed with the Paul Martin governments Lump Sum payment plan instead of the monthly plan pr4evious. So while yes the Conservatives have not done well. One cannot ignore this current state of payments courtesy of the Federal Liberal party.
Another is the widespread public opposition to the federal Justice Department spending to date almost $700,000 in legal fees to fight a class action by injured veterans in B.C. seeking lifelong disability payments rather than lump sum settlements. The lump sum approach was an all-party decision under the Martin government that has proven to have disastrous impacts on Canadian soldiers returning from the battlefield. The lifelong monthly payments model should be restored immediately as an option. The crux of the legal case is whether there is a binding social contract on governments for the care of veterans and their families.
