Veterans Affairs documents reveal cash for photo-ops, but not prosthetics

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Isn’t it interesting how Justin Trudeau’s Liberals become a bunch of fiscal conservatives when it comes to taking care of our military and our veterans?

They have no problem giving $10.5 million to convicted Al Qaeda war criminal Omar Khadr but are currently fighting Captain Kimberly Fawcett to avoid paying for her prosthetic leg, trying to weasel out of a duty to care for her on a technicality.

In 2006, Fawcett was on a military-authorized family care plan and was in a devastating highway accident near Kingston, Ontario that killed her 9-month-old baby. She also lost her one of her legs.

But yet in the face of this unimaginable tragedy, Fawcett re-deployed to Afghanistan for a second tour with a prosthetic leg. She became a triathlete, competing in the Invictus Games. She's even climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.

But Fawcett did all those things in spite of her treatment by the Canadian government and leaders of the country she served with distinction.

The government continues to argue Fawcett was not on duty at the time of her accident, even though the initial military investigation found otherwise.

In today’s video, I’ll show you how the government blew nearly $32,000 on photo-ops for Veterans Affairs in just seven months, while refusing to pay for the $34,000 bill for Fawcett’s leg.

I guess Fawcett is just asking for more than Trudeau is willing to give.

Hey, in the military it’s who you know. He has done really well in the military because he learnt quickly how to “brown nose”. Ask any military member and they’ll tell you what that means.

My brother left the base to go to his son’s place to get a cat out of a tree! He fell out of the tree and broke his back. They considered him “on duty” even though it was personal (unlike Kimberly) so covered all medical costs and gave him a medical discharge with full pension. Needless to say, there were those who objected that he wasn’t “on duty” but that decision was over ruled by his commanding officer.

In the Military, it pays to know who “know”.

As a part time professional photographer in a small town, I gotta say after looking closely at those lists of contracts that someone was getting paid pretty good! Typically 4 to 5 hundred dollars for a couple of hours work. Compared to the cost of a membership to the LPC, that’s cooking with gas!

What is one mile long and has an ars*hole at every foot?
The answer: a liberal parade.
But all levity aside, it’s a wonder to me that the idiot on the hill has not been shot yet. Perhaps some psycho will snap and pull the trigger putting this country out of its misery!

I’m surprised that our Boy Blunder still has the nerve to fly anywhere on DND aircraft given his obvious “popularity”…

Lets not forget about the $41 million our Idiot on the Hill, Justin Baby Doc Trudeau, gave Afghanistan for its veterans. A few days later he told a Canadian veteran at a town hall that, well, there are just no funds for our veterans (while making his sad face).

At that same time, he also gave $2 million for hospital repairs to an Afghanistan hospital, but still had no funds for Canadian veterans services and assistance.

He also found $660 million to pay for abortions in third world nations, and $2 billion for helping other countries combat “climate change”, something that has been going on for 4.5 billion years. But $34,000 for a Canadian military hero? Heavens, no.

Recently, he gave $50 million to an American TV show late night host for Neilson Mandela celebrations, but still can’t find a penny for our veterans. He also has no funds for sleeping bags for our military, making them share 40+ year old sleeping bags while blowing a fortune on 38 year old F18s to replace our 37 year old f18s.

Remember this when you argue with someone who supports our free spending trust fund PM.

But, C. White, he has nice socks for every occasion.

We already knew that Junior is Veteran-phobic. His treatment of Hehr, for allegations less severe than the Kokanee grope of a teenager, showed he is disabled-phobic. That grope and recent scandal events prove Junior is a Misogynist. So Captain Fawcett checks three intersectional boxes of things Junior despises.

Actually, it all boils down to the fact Junior is competency challenged hence competency-phobic.

What can one say,but the fact that this woman is a true Canadian and hero.Trudeau and his cabal,will one can say they are nothing more than a POS!!!

She is what you call a true Canadian hero.

I’m sure if you started a campaign, you would have no problem raising the money for a Prosthetic if she needs one.
