I am a veteran, who served my country in pursuit of peace for 27 years and I am tired of feeling betrayed by my own country. We sacrfice much more than people realize while deployed on missions around the world. We have put heart & sole into protecting CANADA for years.

Few people earn what hockey players earn. The fans are nuts to pay the ticket prices. This is not a fair comparison.

I spent 40 years in the regular forces and the reserves went where they sent me along with my family for this I receive a pension. But because I took the CPP at age 60 when I turned 65 they clawed back $429 from my pension the MP 's don't get theirs clawed back these people most who never served a day in the service could care less about out vet's and only look after them self's. make my pension tax free great idea.

To add and please correct me if I'm wrong. But the MP's get a FULL pension ($100,000.00 + ) with serving only a 3 year stent in the public service. Most of that time seem's to be on vacation.

Are you kidding me? The Military give their entire lives to Canada - the Government needs to start acknowledging the fact that they are nothing without the people who serve & protect this country!

Me too..... you've probably paid car and home insurance too. I sure hope I don't have to 'draw a penny' on any of them. We're lucky.

these people have put their lives on the line to give us the freedoms we have today. and how do we repay them? by paying the active seervice people so little they are just above poverty level. our pensioned vets are treated like second rate citizens...barely enough to live. shame on canada!

Politicians don't claw back their pensions so why should a Veteran, who has done so much more service for their country.
