Most civilians do not understand the New Veteran's Charter created by the Liberal Government and defended relentlessly by the Harper government.

It is all about money - it is all about saving the Government money - but we the people ARE the government and if enough raise our voices in a united way, we can force our government to do the right and honorable thing - pay our veterans a pension.

As it stands right now if a verteran has served at least 10 years they get a buy out based on 20% of their best 5 years of pay. If they serve less than that, their source deductions are returned to them - and that's pretty much it.

When they are discharged for medical reasons - be it PTSD or physical injury - they are not getting the supports they need beyond prothstetics or drug therapy. If the drugs don't work for them - too bad.

I want you to read this - PLEASE:

If that doesn't make your stomach churn - I am not sure what will...

I have another day of hard riding to get to my next fundraiser in Midland ON at the Tim Horton's at 5:30 pm tonight - hope to see some of you out there to support our veterans...
