I am proud that Orleans is home to a large community of our Veterans, and I regularly meet at the door that Justin Trudeau's failure to support our veterans is a slap in the face to those who served. I want to help fix that, and our conservative government wants to fix that. We will enshrine, in legislation, a Military Covenant between the Government of Canada and all Canada’s Veterans. This will guarantee that every Veteran is treated with respect and is provided services promptly. We will also:
- Clear the current backlog of Veterans’ benefit applications within 24 months;
- Work to create a reliable, dependable pension system that, unlike the Liberal status quo, is fair to Canada’s most disabled Veterans;
- Strengthen transition services to support discharged or retired Canadian Armed Forces members, and much more.
The Conservative Party and I are committed to ensuring that our veterans get the support they need.
