Seamus O’Regan, Justin Trudeau’s pick for Veterans Affairs Minister, continues to show his total incompetence and unfitness for the job.
Speaking to a group of Canadian soldiers, O’Regan compared leaving journalism to the struggles faced by Veterans leaving the military:
“When Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan left journalism, it was, he said, “a shock to his system” — a painful time in his life.
And that — he told a roomful of soldiers and civil servants Monday — has given him insight into how members of the Canadian military feel as they take off their uniforms for the last time.”
His comments didn’t go over well:
“Good Lord, what a insensitive and inaccurate thing to say,” said Barry Westholm, a former master warrant officer and sergeant-major for the Joint Personnel Support Unit (JPSU) in Eastern Ontario. He resigned from the military to protest the deterioration of the unit that was supposed to help guide injured soldiers back to their jobs or out of the military. “It shows me he has no concept of what he is dealing with.”
O’Regan has been a terrible Veterans Affairs Minister from day one. He even publicly attacked a Veteran for spreading ‘false’ info, except that it turned out the Veteran was telling the truth about the Liberals betraying a campaign promise, while it was O’Regan who was being deceptive.
O’Regan should have been fired long ago, and it’s quite clear that the Veterans Affairs Minister post should only be filled by a Canadian Veteran.
