Trudeau faces angry veterans in Edmonton

Jeff Wilkinson — February 2, 2018

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is just about finished with his cross-country tour. And he probably knows the public relations exercise isn’t ending quite as well as he expected.

Thursday in Edmonton he was asked why the government isn’t providing better support to Canadian veterans.

“Why are we still fighting certain veterans groups in court? Because they’re asking for more than we are able to give right now,” Trudeau said, answering a question from a veteran, who said he lost his leg to an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan.

That argument might be just a little hard to accept. In 2016, Trudeau was telling Canadians the program to bring tens of thousands of Syrian refugees to Canada could cost $1 billion. In November, 2015, the government committed $678 million over six years to resettle the first 25,000 refugees. In the 2017 budget, the government committed an additional $245 million over the next five years. It looks as if Trudeau will be spending close to the $1 billion he promised.

So when angry veterans confronted the prime minister in Edmonton about their funding problems, what was he supposed to say?

“”I have pledged, and I did pledge and I will continue to pledge that I will do right by you,” Trudeau said. “The changes that we’ve made to our support for veterans are based around recognizing where we went wrong before.”

But the veterans weren’t buying it. One of them said he didn’t think Trudeau was really listening to veterans and that his government’s restoration of the lifelong pension was a “lacklustre” effort at best.

Before the old lifetime pension was eliminated in favour of a lump sum payment, veterans could have received up to $2,700 per month. Under the restored pension plan the Liberal government introduced, the maximum a wounded soldier would ever see is $1,150 per month. Trudeau said his government’s monthly pension amount is lower because it takes into account the cost of services offered by the federal government including post-traumatic-stress treatment and psychological care, support for caregivers and family members, who look after wounded veterans, and job training for those who can still get back into the job market.

But what is really happening here? Is Trudeau starting to realize the national debt has now risen to $1.4 trillion and he’s running out of money? And when given choices to either support the Canadian veterans or bring in Syrian refugees to support his future Liberal election campaigns (he already changed voting rules to allow the earliest refugee arrivals to vote), what was he supposed to do?

And don’t forget, veterans are still smarting from Trudeau’s trade mission to Vietnam last November that forced him to miss Remembrance Day services on Parliament Hill.

So did Trudeau score any points on this cross-country tour that winds up today in Nanaimo? I guess we’ll know come election time in 2019.

VETERAN GUERRILLA RADIO

Scott Casey...Ironically, surrounded by an elite team of men willing to sacrifice theirs lives for him;

Not since Prime Minister Robert Bordens Sacred Obligation speech has a Canadian Prime Minister said so much in one brief sentence. And in those recent words our military and veterans communitys have never been in worse regard or betrayed more so here at home, than now.

It is a tragically sad time for Canada and those who have sacrificed their limbs, minds, and lives in the service of our nation.
In one brief moment captured in time, Canada's leader tried with tone inflection, with what might have been construed as reaching for compassion in light of his impending comment, to offer a sentence which had me sitting in complete disbelief.
His comment wasn't a gaff but a rehearsed rebuttal.
It occurred to me as I listened to the sentence over again a few times that there was something deeper in those words. The words are beyond that of a politician. They are the words of a person who has no conscience.
Set politics aside for a moment.
Any human being in good health, wealth, and influence, who can sit before another who has lost limbs, sacrificed their mental well being, and struggled to make ends meet, is a person with zero empathy, compassion, or moral truth.

This character, or lack there of, should speak volumes to Canadians of how each is viewed as sub-standard in the eyes of this Prime Minister. Now add in the fact he is also the only Prime Minister to publicly fall on the wrong side of an ethics issue and then laugh in the face of Canadians in it's aftermath. Once again this speaks of no moral conscience.
His crocodile tears are those of his chosen hobby profession, drama teacher, and not to be confused with genuine empathy for his fellow man.

The very fact that the person who wields the pen that sends those who wield the swords at a moment's notice to the battlefield, is capable of doing so without so much as an afterthought for their wellbeing is disturbing.

Furthermore, the unparalleled audacity that exudes during this face to face is contempful on a level I've personally never beheld. To ask someone to offer their life while he sits back amidst the protection of the very people he is empowered to protect, is unprecedented and worthy of removal from the office he holds immediately.

"They are asking for more than we can give." ~PM Justin Trudeau

If you can't give your soldiers and veterans the care they have earned simply by surviving the wars you've sent them to, then you can't afford to send them in the first place or in the future.

What more does a Prime Minister have to do to be removed from his post?
It is high time that the axe of accountability be swung. He is but a Prime Minister, Canadians care for our veterans and should respond directly to this callous, unfeeling, and unpatriotic Prime Minister.

Continued networking is the answer to VGR's question.
Use the internet and continue to show support for one another, we deserve it, since we now know what we are worth
It's across Canada Network.
Other public forums are speaking up even louder in reference to the  disparity between the NVC/Pension Act
More people know, the better.
Your application date is what counts? War, doesn't have a date, nor a time.
The GOC is responsible for all their CF soldiers.
Financial security is the bottom line.

Doug Roberts With out the spin of other groups trying to make political hay with this and adding their spin on what transpired here is the actual Question, Answer and Interview. Comments on other issues not relating to exactly this or hate fueled spew will not be tolerated. This governments Leader has told us all where we stand with his government. This should be a battle cry for all of us to take action. Liberals lied to us that simple. Yes have have done a few things much more than others have since 2006. The Point is They Have Not Met The Standard and Commitment They Made To all Veterans! VAC is in shambles claims are tied up in limbo for years and they give us lame answers but count its never their fault. They actually have the nerve to blame it on an increase in claims from Veterans. I don't know much but i do know this has gone hard sideways at their own hand. Politicians and Beuracrats don't give a rats arse about us they are concerned with what the public can be led to perceive

Janet Blayney Pothier To suggest anyone who has served their country is asking too much is ludicrous. And then to suggest it's because of psychological injuries and the caregivers allowance is so incredibly insulting. The government can always 'find' money and to blame veterans and their families for NOT being able to meet their election promises is reprehensible. I am so disappointed, and this from a man who knows the impact personally of having a parent with mental illness. The difference is he is from a very privileged background and so they had the resources to access the supports required...many veterans are not so fortunate. So while he sits on family wealth, power and privilege, he tells veterans they are the reason the government cannot fulfil their election promises. They continue a court case they said the wouldn't AND they refuse to look at the seriously negative impacts Larium has on soldiers brains... those 'psychological' injuries many veterans experience may be directly related to a brain injury caused by Larium a drug my husband was MADE to take every Tuesday while deployed in 1993. The Canadian government is directly responsible for that -regardless of party or political leanings....the government, and as an extension, the People of Canada who expect our military to do the work so many choose not to, so owe that to veterans and their families. Period.
