Mr. Peter Julian (Burnabyâ€”New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, the Conservatives keep attacking veterans in court, and veterans deserve better.
Yesterday, the Prime Minister referred to the veterans charter as a previous Liberal policy, but his government has been pursuing this policy for the last eight years. We have also learned that the biggest claw back in spending for Veterans Affairs was in health care and disability payments for services veterans sorely need, but the Conservatives overspent by 17% for internal services, propaganda, advertising and executive bonuses. What poor management. It is crazy to keep this minister. Why does he still have a job?
