Impolitic to use Remembrance Day

It was distressing to receive a mailout from MP Russ Hiebert using Remembrance Day to solicit feedback on government performance.

It was profoundly distressing to receive a mailout from MP Russ Hiebert using the occasion of Remembrance Day to solicit feedback on government performance.

This mailout was even more discouraging given the federal government’s cursory treatment of veterans, forcing some veterans to access the courts to request fair compensation for service-related disabilities and earnings loss benefits.

It is very regrettable that Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) took this route on an issue that should be treated on a strictly bipartisan level and that needs immediate federal government intervention and support so that our veterans can focus on recovery as opposed to lengthy court action.
