'Harper Government Failing To SUPPORT Soldiers Families': Military Ombudsman

"The outgoing military ombudsman is criticizing Ottawa for failing to provide adequate support to families of fallen and injured soldiers, especially those with post-traumatic stress disorder.

In an exclusive interview with CBC News, Yves Côté said his office has dealt with many families who complain of too few answers after a death in Afghanistan or little help after loved ones return home with mental health problems.

"All too often, the system is just 'we'll come to you when we come to you'," Côté said. "Just take the time to show you have a heart as an organization and care about people."


Harper is following Bush in his commodification of our military.
And those serving under the Canadian flag have a less arduous task that the Americans in Iraq.

In the US, the percentage of soldiers in need of special treatment has risen dramatically yet the military infrastructure to help them has crumbled significantly.

Harper is doing the same thing here. Let the society crumble and leave the dirty work to the next PM.

Mike Harris did this to Ontario and we're still picking up the pieces and trying to get back to a proper life.

Both cases are like England after Cromwell. What came after Cromwell? The Restoration.

We can start ours sooner if we get Harper out of office really sooner than later. Now it's time to lean on the MPs to do something to rid us of Harper.
