Veterans Affairs pays for cop killer's PTSD treatment

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

While serving a life sentence for the second-degree murder of an off-duty officer in his apartment in 2015, Christopher Garnier, 30, is also being treated for PTSD.


At his sentencing in December, the court heard his father, who had served in the Canadian Forces, also has PTSD, and getting treatment for his son helps them both so Veterans Affairs ponied up the dough to treat Garnier behind bars.

But the most insane, infuriating and demented part of an already demented story is that the PTSD Garnier is being treated for is related to the murder he committed and is in the slammer for!

The guy GAVE HIMSELF PTSD when he murdered a beautiful, vibrant, off-duty Nova Scotia police officer named Catherine Campbell, after meeting her in a bar. He stuffed her body in a trash can and disposed of her like garbage under a bridge.

And in another unbelievable act of gall, the low life tried to use his PTSD diagnosis to get a reduced sentence, to avail himself of a parole hearing after ten years instead of 13 years.

Veterans Affairs issued a general statement to the CBC without referring to the case directly, saying:

“When a man or woman serves in Canada's Armed Forces or the RCMP, their whole family serves with them. That is why the government of Canada has made it a priority to not only improve benefits and services for our nation's veterans, but for their families as well.

"As such, access for family members ‎of veterans to counselling and other services may be provided in circumstances where it is determined that the provision of these services will assist the veterans in achieving their rehabilitation goals.”

Except that if a current Canadian Forces member was convicted of this murder, they would be thrown out of the force and receive no benefits.

There aren't enough mental health services available for actual soldiers who need them, but Veterans Affairs is paying for a murderer to overcome the PTSD he gave himself when he butchered a Nova Scotia police officer and then committed an indignity to her battered body.

Vets are asking for more than Trudeau is willing to give, but there’s always money for the Liberals to hug a thug or two.

Oh well, that’s what happens when 99 percent of the population goes weepy over the poor veterans and their PTSD.

Amy Lynn
“Trudeau was a math and science teacher”
SERIOUSLY? Are you for REAL??
He has never been anything but a PART TIME DRAMA TEACHER, SKI INSTRUCTOR, BOUNCER!!!!
For GODS SAKES WOMAN! Get your FACTS straight before you comment! You make yourself a FOOL of yourself every time you post!!!
Wow, now I understand the seriousness of the brain damaged in this land as your numbers appear to be STAGGERING and getting worse!

Amy, too bad you can’t recognize how idiotic the former drama teacher; snow board instructor and bouncer truly is. Not to mention his incessant “uh uhm aah um uh aah” when he opens his mouth.

Stop acting like a “front hole”!!!

Tammie, Trudeau was a math and science teacher also. Your Trudeau Derangement Syndrome is leaking out again. Plug yourself.

Hey, don’t forget that Baby Doc Trudeau gave $41 million of our tax dollars to Afghanistan for its veterans, and then within a month he was telling that Canadian vet that there is no money for Canadian veterans.

I believe that Canada gave enough lives and funds to help free and rebuild Afghanistan. Let Afghanistan take care of its own veterans.

If he didn’t give $45 million to the Clinton Foundation (our money, not his) or $15 million to the Aga Kahn, there might just be funds for Canadian troops. Priorities, priorities… We know his priorities are not with us.

These are three examples out of dozens of his being generous to other countries and causes and not Canada or Canadians. These three examples total $91 million, which pales compared to his giving $640 million for abortions in third world countries.

Dumber Than A Rock Trudeau should be more concerned with Canadians instead of virtue signalling. He will never be able to spend enough of our money to get himself a chair at the UN Security Council – a dream of his.

Amy Lynn that was for helping the family deal with another family members PTSD, not for some self created crisis. Try and learn the difference.

Say, is it just possible that the same “gurus” in Ottawa that gave Khadr 10.5 million are now running the show at Veterans Affairs?… And they’re probably drinking buddies with the “advisors” at Climate Barbie’s?

For sure one of most disturbing and disrespcetful acts to happen under trudeau’s watch!!!
( he does not deserve to have his named capitalized)

Insightfull & agreed Mr.Potvin..Sincerely

Thanks Shelia for the coverage pretty unlikely the CBC/Global/CTV etc will be reporting on any of this….

This is absolutely infuriating. I find this so sickening I can’t even bring myself to chuckle at Amy Lynn’s callousness and stupidity. Which is something I would normally do. When veterans are being treated like they’re completely disposable, and thugs are given the royal treatment at the tax payer’s expense, then we have to ask ourselves if there’s any hope of ever getting back to sanity. I sure wish Bernier hadn’t quit the conservative party. He should have stayed and publicly confronted Sheer. If he could pull together a viable national party that’s truly conservative in nature before the next election I would vote for ir. But I doubt that he can. I believe it’s impossible. So we’re stuck with Liberal light in Sheer.

Joe Clark had no idea the son of a veteran who viciously murdered a police officer would then use PTSD in attempt to reduce his sentence or get VA to pay for his therapy when veteran’s are being denied treatment or wait years for help…their family too. I’m sure Joe didn’t anticipate veterans being taken to court by the government and publicly told they are asking for more than the government can give. I’m thinking Joe Clark never imagined a former drama teacher would be the PM and a former drunk who reported the news would be the minister in charge of our Canadian veterans and their families.

As Sheila said, "But the most insane, infuriating and demented part of an already demented story is that the PTSD Garnier is being treated for is related to the murder he committed and is in the slammer for!

LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER AND YOUR STORY PROVES IT

Bruce missed the memo that this was Joe Clark’s doing.

This is more proof of the reprobate mentality of the leftist lunatics running our government. They put evil for good and good for evil. And things will only get worse unless we vote the bums out.

Will Trudeau review? He is fighting veterans in court and during his Town Hall tour this winter, he told an injured veteran that they are asking for more than the government can give.

Veteran’s Affairs should send the file to Corrections Canada, no VA funding should be available to this murderous POS.

SGR has some serious Trudeau Derangement Syndrome. This provision to allow benefits to children of veterans was written under then PM, Joe Clark. Nice try, Sheila.
