#Harper’s ‘Pigs at the Trough’ II: #Fantino vs #Canada’s #Veterans #cdnpoli via #pnpcbc

This Must See and Share Breaking News Press Conference aired during CBC’s Power & Politics with Evan Solomon on Tuesday, January 28, 2014. This is a web-accessible follow-up to the issue regarding the disrespected Veterans who were in Ottawa to fight ongoing service cuts by the Harper Government and lobby against the closing of their regional offices. After waiting all day, Canada’s Veterans left an emotional meeting feeling betrayed Tuesday, after being cut short and virtually ignored by Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino.

Points to Ponder:

  1. What are the provisions that will be allocated towards assuring the accessibility of reliable, high-speed internet access for Disabled Veterans that are required in order to access services?
  2. What are the provisions that will be allocated towards providing education, computers, assistive technologies, equipment and devices for Disabled Veterans that require such considerations?
  3. What are the provisions that will be allocated towards providing competent computer and web-literacy training for Disabled Veterans that are not familiar with “social media” and/or the internet?

Bonus Pondering:

  • What are the provisions that will be allocated to those Disabled Veterans that will also be losing Canada Post’s door to-door postal delivery services?
