I find the grit interest in our troops and veterans pretty amusing. General Hillier called the pseudo chretien /dithers era a decade of darkness for the Canadian military. grits sent our sons and daughters into harm's way without proper equipment. pseudo chretien was always saying he would send troops while cutting budgets. pseudo chretien's cancellation of the helicopter deal put our troops in danger !iffy wants to repeat these maneuvers.
The Tories have re equiped HM Canadian Forces so our troops have the best equipment. iffy knows we have to replace our aging fighter jets. Indeed the grits support the air mision in Libya. I think the grits want our troops to use crop dusters.
We can always do more for our veterans. We owe them an eternal debt.
The Tories have enhanced support for veterans and their families, including $2 billion to ensure the veterans who have been seriously injured in service: $282 million to expand the Veterans Independence Program for surviving family members.
And there are currently a number of programs available to CF members that pay for college and university tuition, books, and academic equipment. In some cases there are guarantees for jobs upon graduation. So iffy is trying to reinvent the wheel.
I am a staunch supporter of HM Canadian Forces they have fought and died for our freedom. I want to see them well equipped and well supported when they return. I will not be voting grit
The grits record on the military is shameful and continues to be shameful.
