Mr. Speaker, Patricia Kidd from Victoria was married to her husband, Pete, a naval surgeon, for 31 years. They raised two sons and loved each other until the day Pete died in April 2016.
Yet, Patricia is not getting a penny of his pension, as the Liberals continue to deprive veterans' spouses of benefits if the veteran they marry is over 60. The minister keeps telling me this is a top priority, but these widows are still waiting.
Will the Liberals immediately eliminate the archaic over-60 clause, so that widows like Patricia can finally get the pension they deserve?
