This should be a sticky....remind everyone.
Then maybe we’ll have a chance of getting rid of him in 2019.

Someone could start a go fund me page to raise funds to buy advertising and show these figures on tv. Since it doesn't look like he will have much in the way of opposition the next election.

Still trying to get into the international boys club by throwing money around.

I'm a vet.

I'm also 20 years from being accepted to national pension loot.

As I'm covering for my parents and their friends, myself and my friends and likely my parents friends' kids have largely not been having kids.

I wonder where those kids are going to generate funds for retirement.

I'm skeptical of ever getting dollar one from any contributions. Much like Employment Insurance.

Ombudsman for veterans grilled the Liberal government today. He stated there have been 14 studies done and over 190 recommendations put forward but none have been implemented. After that a private members bill, a one pager, to get the ball rolling was voted down by the Liberals.

Sad to say but do not expect any resolution in the near future. The Liberals are all talk and no action of any consequence.
