Mr. Speaker, we have heard over and over about the minister's mandate letter and the promises that have been made.
We have seen a slow trickle of some of the promises, a slow reopening of some Veterans Affairs offices, and some additional money for injured veterans, but nothing of the promised pensions or the significant reforms that are desperately needed.
Veterans are falling through the cracks. Those cracks are deep, and our veterans are not getting the help they need.
Will the government live up to its sacred obligation to all veterans and ensure that they, no matter when they served, receive the services and benefits they are entitled to? Will the government support a one-veteran-one-standard approach and work quickly to make the necessary changes so that no one falls through the cracks?
Will it abandon this disgraceful lawsuit?
