Gary Walbourne in my view is much more aggressive then the Veterans Ombudsman Guy Parent. Both are up against the bureaucratic system that allows only what they, the bureaucrats allow to go forward. Look at the 8 year report from the Veterans Ombudsman and you'll see that some recommendations were implemented while others were not. This is evidence of the bureaucrats in control controlling what is acceptable, and what isn't. And in reality what is being recommended does not hit the core problem that is obviously continuous.

Here's the thing, I was released way before 2006, I payed attention to the Veterans file because I was a part of it. I will not lie, there were some problems within the pension act, I stress minor problems. Nothing major, nothing that impacted disabled Veterans to the point where we are today. More or less it wasn't so much problems but more of a push for improvements as a means of keeping the progress moving as an expected normality in our behavior. The one point that really sticks out to me was the fact of lifelong tax free security which took an enormous burden off the disabled Veteran. It also helped in both physical, and mental conditions whereas more time was given to deal with our conditions not worrying about our life security, not worrying about someone putting pressure on us for going back into the work force. Going back to the work force was entirely up to the Veteran, and you didn't have to worry about your benefits being affected. It really was a good system, still is a good system for the Mounties, and those still around collecting the pension act. Today we are talking about transition, education, and mental facilities which are available to any civilian. What we have today is a system that is a total failure to disabled Veterans. A system that is driven by an insurance style program from A to Z. A system that works for the bureaucrats in securing work for them which is evident by what we have witnessed from 2006 forward. We have a Minister who says getting Veterans back to work is his top priority. Listen stop mixing non medically released Veterans, with medically released Veterans. There is a difference between the two, a huge difference. I'll even go one step further, which system do you think Seamus would take if he had the choice between the pre 2006, and post 2006 for his own personal security? Seamus says I will not go back to the 1919 pension because all we did is give them a blank cheque, and said see ya. Well that is what we want a tax free for life blank cheque, and the for life tax free allowances that went with it. Everything else I can assure you as I have personally witnessed this myself is available for all Canadians.

So taken with what I have wrote above, do you agree or understand or better understand somewhat why disabled Veterans today are having so much problems with benefits that come from Veterans Affairs Canada?

This is the way I see things regarding our file for disabled Veterans, it is my opinion.

Your right trooper they seem to focus on people getting out of military that can go back to work and the ones that can't go back to work are getting the run around and the wait times are out of control way to long to give answers and treatment. They can fix the system in less than a year but that would mean we would not need as many at VAC so they want to keep the system broken and keep beating us down. VAC causes more problems with vets mental and physical health by trying to find ways to play there mind games with there denies and not enough evidence on us so they can protect there own jobs. VAC wants us to just give up and not keep fighting them but they don't seem to understand we are not going away.

Your site is reaching out to more and more vets, and they are spreading the word to other vets, please keep up the good work you have been doing, and lets get one more veteran the proper information they need to help fight this broken system.
