Posted by John Greenfield (Bowmanville) on 12 December 2010

Spouses of veterans who died without making application for benefits from Veterans Affairs Canada are being denied housekeeping and grounds maintenance assistance from Veterans Affairs Canada. 

These spouses were caregivers for many, many years and now that they need assistance it is being denied them while their sisters of Veterans who have died are receiving half pensions and the VIP for life.


An Allied Veteran had to enter a Long Term Care Facility in May of 2003 a few months before financial assistance was provided to Allied Veterans in Long Term Care Facilities in November of 2003. His spouse, who is his Power of Attorney, continues to be informed that her husband does not qualify for this assistance. Are we trying to nickel and dime these soldiers that put their lives in harm's way for us?

Yours in Comradeship

Climate change and a fair tax system

4 Days Work Week in Canada - Why haven't we opt for that yet?

30 Aug, 2011 | By OATRICK | " I am a proud Canadian. I love our country. However I feel Canada needs a four day work week like France. Even our country to the south of us may introduce a four day work week in certain states.

Canadian Armed Forces pensions

26 Aug, 2011 | By Craig | Are an absolute mess. Clawbacks at a certain age, overshadowed by medical pensions which are of no real tangible value (they devalue the regular pension, resulting in no real net gain for a medical condition, say, like a blown off limb), and a faulty and flawed Veterans Affairs portfolio.

Preservation of Canadian Lighthouses

5 Jul, 2011 | By Michel | I read with interest the report of the Senate on the above subject.
