This was the moment I lost the final shreds of faith I had in the Liberals. Ever since Mr. Trudeau said this in response to a veteran asking about why the Liberal government is fighting veterans in court:
“…because they’re asking for more than we can give…”
He went on with how much more money is going into Veterans Affairs, the larger context of costs, thank you for your service, blah, blah, blah…
I had almost forgotten the patronizing way this veteran was treated (…thank you for your passion?! Seriously, JT said that!) until last weekend when the PPC announced their Veterans policy. My feelings about those who would defend my country resurfaced and that is the topic of this podcast.
Here is the PPC policy: Veterans: Standing Behind the Men and Women Who Sacrificed for our Country
Here is the full exchange between a veteran and JT. Best not to watch this on a full stomach.
