    OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    Evidently, he likes to play dress up. Found this circulating online this morning. Looks like a real winner. Has some pretty sweet hero pics on his Facebook profile of Laszlo Kenderesi.

    How VAC Gets Clients Upset with Poorly Staffed Responses

    I'm not "baiting" you at all! You pointed out that you have a direct line to the District Manger, which doesn't exist.  I was a bit surprised by that title as it doesn't exist.  There would be the Client Service Team Manager (CSTM) who is a District Office Manager, then the next up is the Area...

    How VAC Gets Clients Upset with Poorly Staffed Responses

    Define "stalling"? What waiting period must pass before you pick up the phone to grease the wheels?

    How VAC Gets Clients Upset with Poorly Staffed Responses

    Also of impressive note - I wrote a letter to Mr. O'Toole on Tuesday morning.  I just now (well, 10 minutes ago, but still 7:30 at night, and after hours) received a very good response from the Minister.  A 3 day turnaround for a letter from the MVA? Christ, I wrote a letter to Minister Blaney a...

    Class Action Suit against NVC & "Govt has no obligation to soldiers"

    Are we done with the martyrdom? Seriously!  The point is filling out a questionnaire once a year to extend your benefits IS NOT A NATIONAL NEWS ISSUE! It takes about 30 minutes to complete, ONCE A YEAR. Not to mention, he, and the news agencies keep on saying VAC or the Government is making him...

    Class Action Suit against NVC & "Govt has no obligation to soldiers"

    Not incorrect at all. Absolutely everything I said in my above statement is 100% correct. You added some extra information than I had, but what I said was correct. Yes, you are required to notify immediately and not wait for the form, but guess what? There have been countless instances of people...

    Class Action Suit against NVC & "Govt has no obligation to soldiers"

    One other thing I'd like to point out that highlights Manulife's position on sending these forms out for continued benefit coverage.... yes, an individual may lose both legs, but, he very well may end up re-entering the workforce in a new occupation that pays him MORE than he was making in the...

    Class Action Suit against NVC & "Govt has no obligation to soldiers"

    This just on todays news; http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/veteran-tired-of-government-making-him-prove-he-lost-his-legs-1.2227180 At the top of the headline, the eye grabbing headline - "Veteran tired of Government making him prove he lost his legs" Again, no the Government is NOT making him...

    Veterans Affairs alleges some ex-soldiers exaggerating their injuries

    This post somewhat highlights what's going wrong with VAC.  You work full time, yet have a Case Manager? A Case Managers job is re-integrating soldiers who are struggling to get back into the workforce, to help them acquire civilian skills, need support and guidelines, and indeed, in many cases...

    Class Action Suit against NVC & "Govt has no obligation to soldiers"

    Thank you, but I'm not a Case Manager defending my job, I was an Administration CR4.  If you read my comments, I was quite open to the fact that VAC certainly has it faults.  If people get defensive that someone is stepping up to say "Hey, maybe this point of view should be dissected a little to...

    Class Action Suit against NVC & "Govt has no obligation to soldiers"

    First and foremost, I think Mr. Franklin deserves a helluva lot more than he's received.  At the same time, I don't believe that the vilification of VAC is going to help matters.  All that does is get a pile of angry guys ranting and raving and spawning stories of "I have a buddy who got royally...

    Class Action Suit against NVC & "Govt has no obligation to soldiers"

    Unfortunately, I have to disagree with this assessment.  Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to have a public figure of Mr. Mercer's stature championing the plight of Veterans, however, I must say that there is some slight of hand to this report of his.  First of all, to the statement he isn't biased -...

    Vac claim. Questions

    Just as an add to this - If you require a masking device for your tinnitus, that will bump the percentage up to 11% or $30,000 (2014 Table payouts).  The 6% is the base assessment for a tinnitus pension, but should your tinnitus be severe enough that you need a masking device (A hearing aid that...

    No official word yet.... I was scouring the internet looking yesterday and today.

    Fantino in/out of VAC: changes in DM/other staff (merged)

    I won't be 'wasting' it with a vote for some fringe party that has no hope of actually getting in power.  I have no problem stating my Federal vote is going Liberal.  By no means do I think Trudeau is any type of spectacular politician, but I accept that the Federal Government of Canada will be...
