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"!
