As the son of a career Naval Officer, I am extremely proud that Canada’s Conservatives have always and will always support our men and women in uniform. Like all Canadians, we will never forget their service to our nation.
But Prime Minister Trudeau shows them nothing but disrespect. He thinks that our veterans cost the government too much money.
During a town hall meeting in Edmonton he told a former soldier, who lost a leg in Afghanistan, that veterans are simply asking for more than his government is prepared to give.
This is a government that found $10 million to pay off a convicted terrorist. They found over million to renovate offices for Trudeau’s Ministers. But they have no money to support our veterans?
That is wrong.
One local veteran said he was “truly shocked that’s how Prime Minister Trudeau looks at veterans. I’m really disappointed.”
During the last election campaign Justin Trudeau promised that he would not fight veterans in court, but we have since learned this is untrue. It’s become quite clear that Justin Trudeau cannot be trusted to put the needs of veterans first.
Our veterans deserve our respect and support. Period.
You can count on Canada’s Conservatives to fight for our brave hero’s each and every day. They never gave up and neither will we.
