What does it say about our government that they would rather reward Omar Khadr than support the brave Canadians who served our country?

BUT, if this New Veterans Charter was launched in 2006, under the government of Stephen Harper, whose claim to be on the side of the… Read more »


How totally and utterly shameful.
Our veterans must be looked after in every way, and at any cost.
A PM with an ounce of decency would see that the veterans are spared no expense.
