Veterans "Broken Promise" Protest 4 October 2014 Parliament Hill
The Liberal Government is moving forward on a promise to raise the earning loss benefit to wounded warriors to ninty percent and will start compensating veterans at the new rate on October 1st.
Unfortunately, there is no equality in recognition of national sacrifice and those veterans, arguably those who have accorded the gratest sacrifice on behalf of our nation, have been excluded.
Those of us who are coverd by the SISIP income loss replacement program have been ignored, those who have been deemed permantly disabled as a consequence to the valourous service will be denied the increase.
There must be equality in recognition of national sacrifice, there can be not one standards for one veteran that does not apply to another, all national sacrifice must be treated equally, without reservation or discrimination .
This is a polical decision, according, we shall assemble on Parliament Hill on October 4th at noon to exercise our right to public demontration, to rally veterans affected and those who support CVA equality standards under the flag of inclusion, not exclusion an denial as we have been subject to the past ten years.
The CVA is non partisan and as I promised many who are conservative inclined during the past, when the moment came, if the moment came, that the CVA would focus on the new government with the same passion and dedication to thwe wounded as we have accorded the last. I am hopeful that those who did not support CVA activities in the past due to polical alliegiance will now step up, show up and accept the obligation to fight on the issue, and the "re establishment" of the life time pension aka Pension Act...
The time has come, the government is waffling, bringing foth measures that are exclusionary and at the level the CVA was founded to fight upon, I can assure you, we will engage.
