A Veterans Plea

Against Annuity
Benefit Reduction at age 65

Merry Christmas
Politicians!

Military/RCMP Veterans wish, all Politicians an enjoyable “Christmas” dinner. Regrettably another year has passed and they forgot to take action on the following Veterans issues:

•    Veterans are calling for a formal Public inquiry into the office of Veterans Affairs to address the unacceptable behaviour and towards the mismanagement of Veterans claims and personnel files;
•    To terminate the disability lump-sum payment that will cause serious financial hardship to many Veterans and their Families; and
•    To eliminate the unfair/unjust CPP (Canada pension plan) benefits reduction programme affecting retired and disabled Military/RCMP Veterans at age 65 or sooner if they become disabled. They have fully paid for and earned their Annuity;

The Government of Canada depleted their Annuity account of over 20 billion dollars to pay down the National debt. The Prime Minister derailed the democratic journey of Mr. Peter Stoffer, MP Bill C-201. On the 5th of May 2010, for the fourth (4) time, Conservatives MP’s were directed to vote against Bill C-201. The Bill count was successful and the final vote recorded was 149 yeas and 134 nays. The speaker of the House declared that Bill C-201 was carried, but he also discharged it from the Parliamentary agenda because the Prime Minister of Canada refused to request a Royal recommendation. Bill C-201 therefore died on the order table. Democracy no longer exits in the House of Commons!

While Christmas dinners are enjoyed, we must always remember that a number of Veterans will get theirs from a soup kitchen. They are the same Veterans who place their lives in your hands to ensure a free and democratic country.

    ”This three part series caused a controversy almost unprecedented in the history of Canadian television. Canadian veterans, outraged by what they considered an inaccurate and highly biased account of the war, sued Brian and Terrance McKenna, the series directors, for libel. An account of the controversy surrounding The Valour and the Horror with statements by the directors, –”
