Mr. Speaker, when the wife of a Canadian soldier with severe PTSD went to the Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, she was told, “You married him. It's your responsibility.”
When a young mom and cancer survivor asked why the government continued to deny her benefits, the minister compared her question to the old question, “When did you stop beating your wife?”
To a thalidomide survivor, this same minister quipped, “Everyone in Canada has a sob story.”
My question for the Prime Minister is simple. Do these comments reflect the position of his government?
