While politicians wrangle over support for disabled veterans, future beneficiaries are banned from the debate. Members of the Canadian Armed Forces are forbidden to comment on the programs designed to assist them when they are injured. Flying in the face of sensible policy development and common sense, disability benefits are arranged without input from future stakeholders.Please email your MP, write letters to the editor, scream it from the rooftops, if necessary. This is not acceptable.
I've said before that supporting the troops, also means standing up for our veterans, especially given that they are not allowed, and sometimes physically unable, to stand up for themselves.
