Veterans deserve better

Canada’s Conservatives have always and will always support our men and women in uniform. Like all Canadians, we will forever be grateful for their service to our nation.

But Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shows them nothing but disrespect. He thinks that our veterans cost government too much money.

During a town hall meeting in Edmonton a few weeks ago, the prime minister told a former soldier, who lost a leg in Afghanistan, that veterans are asking for more than his government is prepared to give right now.

The government found $10 million to pay off a convicted terrorist, but did not have money to support our veterans?

During the last election campaign, Trudeau promised that he would not fight veterans in court, but he did not tell Canadians the whole truth. Trudeau cannot be trusted to put the needs of veterans first.

We are calling on all Liberal MPs to vote in favour of our motion and respect Canada’s veterans.

Our veterans deserve our respect and support. You can count on me to fight for them every day, because they fought for us.
