Once again the supreminist have control of our hard earned moneys.
They served, defended, keep the country safe, and somes give everything for you, for me for everybody. They deserved the same traitement than the Gouveneur General of Canada '' Pensions tax Free ''!
We have supported the government on all taskings no matter where it was, when it was or for how long.... when we retire, some of us medicallly, the governement won't support us for at least 1 year with EI beneifit after paying it all these years, so now ya, give us our pension tax free or don't take half of it away when we reach 65 years old.
These people past and present served or will service to keep our country safe so at least the government should take care of them....
All Veterans in the Canadian Military are important.i am a wounded veteran and deserve what I lost over the last 7 years because of being released for those medical reasons.I had to stand up for myself,finally because I am still alive and will continue to be.
These people work excessive hours for less pay than they would make in civvie life. They have volunteered to if necessary give their lives to protect ours. Their family life is not the same as a person working in a normal situation, but much more difficult for all concerned. They have SERVED their country and its citizens and deserve recognition for it. The additional tax burden to the rest of us would miniscule.
The call came to go and we went. It was not the same as when my father went but still we stepped forward. We paid for the pension, do not let it roll back.
We pay high unemployment rates and cannot draw, so when we retire our pensions could at least be tax free!
We fight for the freedom, so we can have pensions why not give us a break? I could go on with a million reasons but I don't want to get in trouble :)
Because we gave it all, including our lives.
