Mr. Speaker, on Saturday I attended the funeral of Carl Jason Dunphy, a young veteran from my riding who died tragically on February 11. A few hours before his death, he posted the following message about his difficulties in getting help from Veterans Affairs: “It's eating away at my resources and my strength. It's not up to friends and spouses to deal with this because a government organization doesn't act.”
Carl Jason Dunphy's life, his service, and his memory deserve so much more than just a list of statistics read from a cue card.
I am asking the minister again: will the department conduct an internal investigation of the circumstances surrounding his death?
