CVA presents case to Harper government to exempt VAC from budget cuts


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Canadian Veterans Advocacy implores the Harper Government to exempt Veterans Affairs Canada’s budget before the Federal Budget release on March 29, 2012

NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, March 1, 2012 – Many of Canada’s veterans’ stakeholders, including the Canadian Veterans Advocacy, have requested the Harper Government to exclude Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) from looming
budget cuts.

“Our message is simple – now is not the time for budget cuts at Veterans
Affairs Canada,” said Michael Blais, president and founder of the Canadian
Veterans Advocacy. “How can the Harper Government, in good conscience, cut
the VAC budget by half a billion dollars when the department is clearly
having great difficulty providing the standard of care and compensation
our wounded warriors deserve?”
