When my father retire they paid him a lump sum in Unemloyment Insurance.When I tryed to get the lump sum from Unemployment Insurance, they told me that they don't give out lump sums anymore.I paid into Unemployment Insurance since 1964 and never collected a red cent.What did they do with all the money?

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!

These people are and were willing to risk the most precious thing to all of us, namely their lives, to defend freedom as we know it. Zig

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.

Our government gives more money out to help other countries. They also give more money monthly to new citizens coming into our country to help them get established.This is the very same country these Canadian Military men and women have served to make Canada such a viable country for those people to want to live. It leaves us with complete regret that our government does not recognize this and if they do, will not take action to rectify such a wrong. Very sad indeed!

These people have worked hard for our Country. Some have even died for our Country and I think they deserve it. Just think if you had to go through all that and come home after putting your Heart and Sooe into it. Would you not want the help if needed. They have helped us and our Counrty. So lets Help our Heros no matter what. I say Thank You to you all and God Bless.

We served our country. While doing so...we often sacrificed our family, our health and sometimes parts of our sanity. We got taxed within an inch of our lives, paid into a pension, CPP, SISIP, UIC and donated money to almost every other cause that came down the pipe..I served for 21 years until I could not serve anymore. I believe Canada would be willing to cut us a bit of a break.
