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.
