So a judge ruled that Canada’s disabled war veterans are owed $4.6 billion because the federal government mismanaged their money.
The 4.6 Billion dollar question would be whether the federal government, while in the middle of an election campaign will appeal the decision. Hummmmm let’s see… yup pretty much guaranteed they’ll appeal. I mean really, the government has never shown any loyalty to our military. They deal with 3rd world technology for equipment & weapons. They’ve allowed for the complete undermining of any sort of standards for the "new military" with respect to training or fitness standards in order to accomodate those either physically or mentally inferior to be able to succeed.
Maybe I should correct myself, I mean after all we’ve elected the politicians that have cannibalized our once proud military. We have allowed the funding to be gutted from the forces. We stood by and watched our veterans be victimized for their loyalty. I guess there is enough shame to go around for everybody.
Lest we forget? Sadly, I think we already have.
