Trudeau Liberals Cutting $1.8 BILLION In Pension Funding To Disabled Canadian Veterans

Disgraceful.

During the 2015 campaign, the Trudeau Liberals pledged to bring back the ‘Pension For Life’ that was popular among many Veterans.

The ‘Pension For Life’ had been replaced with the ‘New Veterans Charter’ under the Paul Martin Government, with the support of the Harper Conservatives who continued implementing it, and the replacement was widely criticized as being far worse.

The Liberals gained the support of many Veterans based on their promise to bring back the ‘Pension For Life,’ and their pledge to increase funding in the program.

However, once they got into power, they did the exact opposite.

In fact, the Trudeau Liberals are slashing a whopping $1.8 BILLION in pension funding for disabled Canadian Veterans.

Here’s what reporter Gloria Galloway wrote about the Liberal program:

“The new pension plan, which will take effect in April, 2019, will save the government money, at least in the short term, and reduce the compensation awarded to many disabled soldiers. During the first four years of the plan, Ottawa will pay about $1.8-billion less, in total, to disabled vets than it would have under programs enacted during the Harper government. And critics say it has gone to some lengths to prevent veterans from having input.”

Think about that for a second.

The Liberals are running massive budget deficits, and never try to save money anywhere, except when it comes to supporting disabled Veterans.

And they totally broke their promise from the campaign.

While the tax havens of the corrupt elites go untouched, while illegal border crossers get tons of taxpayer money, while Bombardier executives get bailed out, the Trudeau Liberals are trying to save money on the backs of disabled heroes who sacrificed everything for our country.

It doesn’t get more disgraceful than that.

Trudeau and his regime are not working for Canadians.Promises they made and will make in the future are all lies. Supporting the Trudeau regime is to support the destruction of Canada. He must go.

The veterans are a small voter base, so why should the Liberals care, especially since they have changed the rules to allow Canadians living worldwide (2+ million) to vote in the next election. The Liberals are also banking on the fact that Mr. & Mrs. Canada, most of, will never know about this cut, or remember this cut in October 2019. The NDP party is almost a also ran under their new leader, the Conservatives are now fractured thanks to Bernie. What is next from the Liberals is a real concern. Their gall and righteousness is inconceivable and never ending.

All the money that went thru this pm’s hands was given to other. Ountries & on his never ending vacations. When his lips are moving he is lying…..so remember to vote and THINK before you place an “x” on that ballot.

I cannot imagine why anyone in the Military, their families, friends and neighbors would consider voting for Trudeau and his Liberals that clearly hate them and doesn’t even try to hide their hatred.

Not surprising at all, as the Liberals hate the military and have since the 1960s. Kick the military in the teeth when they are down is the Liberal way.

It appears Min. of Veteran Affairs, Shameless O’Regan is stealing from Peter to pay Paul. While he’s stealing from our veterans, his boss has been busy ordering a royal fleet of boats for his Harrington Lake cottage. Canada’s very own modern-day pirate, Trudeau has ordered the following fleet for those ‘sunny days’ on the lake. 17 ft. prospector red canoe; 2 kayaks; 2 paddleboards; 1 windsurfer; 1 sailboat; 1 pontoon boat; 1 ski boat.
Billed to? The Canadian taxpayer’s.

Cutting anything from any pension is tantamount to theft. We worked for our pensions, we earned our pensions, it is our money and the government has no right to steal it from the people that earned it and fought for OUR COUNTRY. Trudeau is a treasonous thief.

The Liberal party hatred of our military and our veterans by the Liberals continues as it has since Pierre Trudeau first started to cut the budgets of our military. The Liberals have always regarded the military as something they must tolerate and can barely bring themselves to respect. For Trudeau to betray our veterans and our soldiers, is the same as betraying Canada and the trust Canadians have in our PM and government. Trudeau is but an arrogant narcissistic elitist who would rather pursue his own desires of being an elite globalist, than fulfill his duty to Canada and Canadians.… Read more »

I believe the Liberals hatred of the military began in 1968 with the election of WW2 draft dodger Pierre Trudeau. Trudeau probably felt deep down guilt of the fact he chickened out of the world’s largest ever conflict,while so many Canadian families lost members “over there”. The military votes about the same way as the rest of the public,probably because so many of them are politically unaware while working hard at their jobs.There are two types in the military, the career minded soldiers and those to whom it is just a stepping stone to a political career. The Liberals seem… Read more »

We need a new word! Reprobates is not strong enough to describe the Lieberals anymore!!! One of reprobate’s synonyms, namely ‘degenerate’, helps to convey the contempt I have for them to a degree!

Just a correction to your article.

You state: “The ‘Pension For Life’ had been replaced under the Conservative government (enforcing legislation supported by the Liberals), and the replacement was widely criticized as being far worse.”

The current system, known as the New Veterans Charter, was introduced by the Liberal government of Prime Minister Paul Martin in 2005 Everybody tries to blame the Conservatives, they did support it. But it was Paul Martin who introduced this change to veterans medical pensions. I know. I got into the old system, just under the wire.
