Radio Interview - 6 Feb.

A lot of veterans are expressing disappointment that they are unable to travel to Ottawa for the protest on February 15. I understand how disappointing it must be for you, I understand because this occurs every time there is a protest. This time, however, you can help us from your home. I should like to organize a dedicated e-mail campaign to be launched concurrently with the protest. It will only take a few minutes out of your time, all you have to do is type the lead sacred obligation promise and write a paragraph defining how you support the veterans who are braving the cold and standing beside Colin Saunders as he leads us in protest.
You can make a profound difference if you get everybody within your arcs of responsibility to join you, if we can get force multipliers engaged, all expressing support for the protest, we can ensure that your voice is added to hours no matter where you live in this great and wonderful nation.

Justin.Trudea@parl.gc.ca

Stand with us now, embrace the spirit of the nation, yes, you may be too disabled to attend were too far away to travel to Ottawa, this is fully understandable, but we must adopt to the situation, create mechanisms where your voice can be added to ours during the same timeframe, wherein we can collectively prevail!

If this is true?
Autocracy?
This is what happens when you start changing the rules as you go and a Nation catches on via, Facebook and the internet.
Networking is key and all people under the Canadian flag, standing as one.
If you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen.

"As we can see, the longer the Trudeau government is in power, the more dictatorial they become. Until they are defeated, they won’t stop trying to expand the power of government, restrict individual freedom, and suppress dissent. That’s why it’s more important than ever for all of us to keep speaking out, keep spreading the truth, and keep making sure that this government isn’t allowed to conceal their dangerous agenda."

Veterans say they are in ‘combat
against our own government’


By Monique Scotti


A group of Canadian veterans is expected on Parliament Hill on Thursday to
protest what they call unfair treatment at the hands of the federal government,
including Minister of Veterans Affairs Seamus O'Regan

Listen: https://app-na.readspeaker.com/cgi-bin/rsent?customerid=8024&lang=en_us&readid=gnca_article_body_for_read&url=https://globalnews.ca/gnca-ajax/read-aloud/4025294/

A group of Canadian veterans and their supporters is expected to show up on Parliament Hill on Thursday to protest what they call unfair treatment at the hands of the federal government.

The event, organized by Canadian Forces veteran Colin Saunders, comes after a week of angry exchanges in the House of Commons between Conservative MPs, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan.

“Veterans Affairs is acting more like an insurance
company and less like an advocate that’s there to
help our veterans,” said Saunders on Wednesday
in Ottawa.


“There’s a lot of chaos growing in the veteran community … quite frankly they’re just tired of being left out in the cold.”

The Liberals recently announced a revamp of the pension system for Canada’s injured men and women in uniform. The long-awaited move was greeted with disappointment and anger in some quarters for failing to live up to what was promised.

The government has argued that its approach is the right one for all Canadians veterans and their families.

A change made in the pension system in 2006 means that injured soldiers receive two different levels of compensation (lifetime pensions versus lump-sum payments) depending on when they were hurt.

Saunders himself suffered a traumatic brain injury in Bosnia before 2006. He says it took more than three years before a cognitive test revealed the extent of the injury, and he’s had to overcome “roadblock after roadblock” to secure compensation.

Since 2006, he’s faced other medical issues and was released from service in February 2017.

“The compensation granted is not equal for (the
injuries before and after 2006),” Saunders said. “I
mean, they’re different injuries, but … they’re not
even close to being what the government’s
promised.”


A veteran in Edmonton, Brock Blaszczyk, recently confronted Trudeau directly on the issue of pensions for injured servicemen and women, leading the prime minister to explain that although Ottawa is moving to spread financial assistance out over veterans’ lifetimes and offering new programs, those who have taken the government to court “are asking for more than we are able to give right now.”

Saunders called that response “very frustrating and upsetting.”

“Because, quite frankly, we’re not buying it,” he told Global News.

“You can look on television every day and
(Trudeau’s) giving millions in aid to other
countries, and yet our own veterans are
struggling to get the help they need.”


Veterans Affairs Minister O’Regan defended his government’s plan repeatedly in the House of Commons last week, citing examples of how it would apply in individual situations.

“A corporal who served five years in the regular forces and suffered 100 per cent disability is entitled to nearly $6,000 a month in benefits, an additional $1,000 a month for caregiver support, nearly $72,000 through the critical injury benefit, and additional financial assistance to modify her vehicle and her home to meet her needs,” O’Regan said.

“Our pension-for-life option … is very real and it is
the least we owe our veterans.”


Saunders said he has spoken repeatedly with O’Regan’s office, and a staffer took notes and promised to pass along his message to the minister. It’s unclear if it was ever received.

“In fact, (the staffer) hung up on me afterwards,” he said.

“It’s funny that the Canadian Forces taught me to
lead soldiers into combat, and it’s ironic that now,
that combat is against our own government.”
