The Wait for Military Pensions Continues

She said she barely scraped by through the summer, fall and early winter with virtually no income except nominal support payments from her ex-spouse.

But because of the wait, she was evicted in November from the house she was renting in a small community outside of Ottawa.

This kind of thing is absolutely unacceptable.

It sounds like there are far too many useless bureaucrats just spinning their wheels. Get rid of them, and don't give them any severance or pension.

It seems like over 10K disability claims should be a priority before bringing in refugees.
