Sad, but at this point, not a surprise from this government.
The Trudeau government has broken yet another promise to Canada’s Veterans.
During the 2015 campaign, the Trudeau Liberals said they would increase the number of case managers in order to reach a 25-1 ratio of Veterans per case manager.
Considering that the Trudeau government has spent many billions of dollars and doesn’t care at all about budget deficits, hiring the number of people necessary should have been easy.
But instead, they broke their promise.
The ratio is 32-1.
While the government claims they’ve doubled the number of case managers, “The federal government is blaming a surprise increase in the number of veterans seeking assistance for its failure to make good on a key Liberal promise of ensuring enough case managers to help those in need,” according to the CP.
It’s the government’s job to foresee “surprises,” otherwise what are all the analysts and bureaucrats being paid for?
If this was an isolated case of a promise not being kept, then it might be possible to give the government the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, the Trudeau Liberals have broken multiple promises to Canada’s Veterans, including the lifetime pension that turned out to be worth far less for many Veterans than the original. Also, the former Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan attacked a Veteran for claiming the pension promise was broken, then refused to take back that attack when the facts showed O’Regan was clearly in the wrong.
Trudeau also infamously said Veterans were “asking for more than we’re able to give right now,” even as he gave billions to foreign countries, ran up huge deficits, and paid $10.5 million to Omar Khadr.
So, this broken promise is part of a pattern of deception and shifting blame by the Trudeau government, and Canadians have no reason to believe that pattern is going to change.
