Canadian Veterans Are “Asking For More Than We Can Afford,” But Trudeau Gave $33 Million Taxpayer Dollars To Help Veterans From Afghanistan’s Military

How can the Trudeau government justify taking our own Veterans to court while they spend money on injured Veterans in a foreign country?

I recently wrote about how Justin Trudeau claims we have so-called “international obligations” to illegal border crossers, even as the federal government fights Canadians in Veterans in court arguing that there’s no obligation to injured Canadian Veterans.

After I wrote about that total disloyalty from Trudeau, some people brought up a story from 2017 that shows Trudeau’s hypocrisy goes even deeper.

We all remember how Justin Trudeau said injured Canadian Veterans were asking for “more than we can afford to give.”

But as people have pointed out, in 2017 the Trudeau government gave $33 million taxpayer-dollars to a rehab centre for injured members of the Afghanistan military.

As noted by the Toronto Red Star on September 20, 2017, “The Foreign Affairs department confirmed that Ottawa recently contributed $33 million, through NATO’s trust fund for the Afghan National Army, for the construction of the Kabul Military National Hospital’s Rehabilitation Centre.”

The report also pointed out “Canada — which had a military mission in Afghanistan for more than a decade — would be the largest donor to the Kabul facility, paying half the cost of the project. It is meant to accommodate 100 military and police personnel as well as civilians injured as a result of the country’s conflicts. An attached facility would house 20 women medical students in training. The goal would be to have the centre built by 2019.”

The cause itself is a good one, as injured Veterans from the Afghanistan military should get good treatment. However, it’s simply not acceptable for Canadian taxpayer dollars to be spent on that. Canadian politicians could have used their social media platforms to encourage people to donate through private-sector means. A tweet or video from Trudeau could have raised lots of money.

But instead, the government took money from Canadian taxpayers – money which should be staying within our country – and gave it to Veterans in another country while saying our own Veterans are asking for too much.

That is a disgrace.

Canadian taxpayer money should be spent on Canadians, and the government must take care of our own Veterans.

And what, this is surprising to you?
Nothing this imbecile groper does is surprising. He is not looking out for Canadians, this should have been realized before the election when he was preaching UN propaganda & openly wearing ‘globul citizen’ shirts.

It’s an outrage. Everything Trudeau does benefits some other country and not Canada. He’s a walking catastrophe. We badly need to get him out of the position. He doesn’t seem to have a clue of how to govern and neither do any of the rest of his cabinet.

Most of the money he gives to other countries never reaches the people or used for the right reasons Trudeau professes. He is a disgusting piece of humanity destroying our wonderful country.

What is the point? King Trudeau does whatever he wants with our money and country and because it is majority, we are the peasants.

Can we impeach him.. I can’t take much more of his stupid multicultural excuses when all he wants to do is bring about the one world order. He is in the same closet as the Clinton’s and Obama.

The way our government treats our veterans is an embarrassment. They send a bunch of (mostly) clueless kids off to fight and die for “Canada and Canadian values”, and then disrespect the ones who make it back alive. Shameful and despicable. And—although Stephen Harper did try hard to change things during his time in power—it’s arguable that the Conservatives have been just as guilty as the Liberals of disrespecting Canadian veterans over the years. So there are clearly no real angels on either side of the political divide when it comes to this particular “agenda item”. Well, change has to… Read more »

Trudeau takes our vets to court yet builds rehab centres in Afghanistan ! 
http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/justin-trudeau-town-hall-edmonton-1.4515822
He told a wounded Canadian vet that our soldiers are asking for more than the government can afford and now he finds $33 million for Afghan vets.

This is absolutely unconscionable .
Here is another Liberal government exercise in horrendous optics { one of many } .
With all these unconscionable Liberal optics, what will finally be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back~!?!

$33 million? That’s peanuts. Two years ago Trudeau pledged $465 MILLION to Afghanistan..

What do we get in return from them? An endless supply of heroin that is wreaking havoc on our city streets.
“Afghanistan’s opium poppy harvest produces more than 90% of illicit heroin globally”
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium_production_in_Afghanistan)

Are we suckers or what.
