OTTAWA - The Canadian military is closing the book on an oft-criticized unit for ill and injured troops as it promises to better care for personnel when they leave the Forces.

The Joint Personnel Support Unit was effectively replaced in an elaborate military ceremony this morning with a new transition unit that top brass hope will solve some of the Forces' most pressing human-resources problems.

The transition unit will provide support and services to military members struggling with physical and mental injuries so they can return to work -- or begin the often emotionally difficult process of leaving the Forces.


The previous support unit was set up during the height of war in Afghanistan for exactly that purpose, but significant staff shortages, a lack of training and other deficiencies resulted in years of complaints.

Transition unit commander Brig.-Gen. Mark Misener says he is confident he now has the staff and resources necessary to provide the support that injured service members need.

The new transition unit's job will also include making sure sick and injured service members don't fall through the cracks when they leave the military, which has been another source of concern over the years.

I can tell you right off this will not work either.

Taking away the pension act is the reason why we have this problem. The government took this away from us and replaced it with an insurance style system geared to put disabled Veterans off pensions, and back into the work force. This is why we have more homelessness, mental conditions, suicides, more chaos within the Veterans file, and outrage by disabled Veterans from coast to coast.

There has to be two transition systems put in place;

1. One for regular released Veterans which would fall under National Defence. (Funds from National Defence)

2. One for medically released Veterans which would fall under Veterans Affairs Canada. Funds from VAC)

What they are doing now with transition will not work. Refusing to re-enact the pension act will not work either. It may work for the government, but will not work for disabled Veterans. You can rest assure that the way our governments is handling the Veterans file today, and moving forward, chaos within the Veterans file will certainly continue. It is a disgrace how our politicians are spinning the system for our disabled Veterans. It is not at all complicated, the bureaucrats have done an excellent job making it complicated for our politicians to understand the real truth/reality surrounding the Veterans file. Make no mistake about it, disabled Veterans understand fully what's going on, the government is screwing us all by their incompetence of running the Veterans file. They are not our friends, nor do they respect us.
