That article shows a long-term problem the feds have with certain agencies. But if you look at what happened in the UK when they privatized (not veteran affairs per se) things became worse. Malignant and nefarious in the efforts to be passive-aggressive in regards to clients. So I wonder what the solution is. Gone are the days when veterans needed service from a war 50 plus years ago. Instead, we have veterans that were in a 20 year protracted war with maimed and killed servicemen coming home and dealing with the VA on a consistent basis.

Disgusting treatment towards our veterans. Abhorrent.

Meanwhile, JT and minions jet their arses around the globe dispensing our money with abandon to those who have never lived here nor paid a dime in taxes…. but not a thought or a nickel for those who actually served bodily and came home wounded, only to be chopped up once again by politicians.

For shame.

2021 poppies “extra stabby” to help Canadians appreciate soldiers’ sacrifice

OTTAWA – Representatives from the Royal Canadian Legion have confirmed that their 2021 poppies were designed for optimal pointiness, size, and “gouge-ability”, to help Canadians better remember their soldiers’ sacrifices.

When stories like this make it into the media across this country, I wonder how many that might be considering enlisting now won't. Who wants to work for an outfit where you are injured on the job and to try and get help is a never ending bureaucratic nightmare.

With this in mind, Canada's military numbers are down. https://www.castanet.net/news/Canada/32 ... e-soldiers

This shouldn’t be a thing needed in Canada period, our politicians apparently don’t give a damn about our Veterans. Federal government get off your :swear: and fix the decades of BS.

Remember this.....

"Freedom is NOT an eternal right paid for by the blood of others, but an HONOUR, bestowed upon those who defend it!"

Please, Honour those who gave you freedom, and vilify those who dare attempt to take it away.

It is easy to vote your way into the enslavement of socialism or communism, but you will most certainly have to shoot your way out of it.

May Peace be with you!
Compliance is a tool used by dictators, to take your freedom and never give it back.
Enjoy your new "Slave State"!

Now there are Truckers for Freedom literally *bleep* on the national war memorial and dancing on the grave of the unkown soldier, such great representation of Canadians, NOT.

The truckers should get out and police those that don't have a "class 1 with air ticket" DL.

These others are just sucking off the trucker's protest.

Fight with what? You don't even realize how poorly equipped the CF is.

(CAN DefMin) Anand, who was in Kyiv on a two-day visit to show Canada’s solidarity with Ukraine, said in an interview with The Globe and Mail that she had discussed “aid, writ large” in her meeting with Mr. Reznikov. While the Liberal government has thus far resisted sending lethal armaments to Kyiv, Ms. Anand said the issue was still under discussion.

She said she wouldn’t publicly discuss what type of weapons Ukraine had asked for, but Mr. Reznikov told The Globe in a recent interview that his country – which has a large and battle-hardened land army after eight years of fighting against Russian-backed forces in the Donbas region – was in dire need of anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems, as well as naval defences and electronic jamming equipment.

We don't have that equipment for our own military, and that's just the start.
Canada would take massive casualties in a war because of this.

the problem for canada is our commitments, but i fully agree canada can not wage war unless americans are our bodyguards, which is fine for me. big military costs big money.
