Harper government denies 74-year old widow military disability
I read this with tears in my eyes. Our Veterans cannot get help with their DU contamination because the government states that none of them were affected by DU. And now this.
Peter MacKay can waste tax dollars for the military by swanning around in a helicopter but there is no help for Veterans and others injured by government decisions to allow this testing? The justification for this 'decision' is nothing more than the government abandoning citizens. If this woman had not put her husband in a long term care facility and he had set fire to the house or wandered off she would be blamed for these occurrences also. We can't win when dealing with the thieves of our tax dollars. This woman did what was best for her husband and now she is penalized for it.
Is there no level to which our government can't sink? The government absolves themselves of blame for contaminating innocent people that have paid taxes all their lives but come up with reasons why they should not be helped after the contamination? God help us all.
If our government was as efficient at helping those Canadians they have promised to help as they are at 'explaining' why they won't help them, we would have a great country
