The story of Corporal Glen Kirkland is a sad indictment of the honesty and integrity of the current Canadian government and right wing politics in general.
An injured Canadian soldier who testified about his struggle for health benefits has been notified that he will be discharged in six months, despite assurances from Defence Minister Peter MacKay that he would suffer “no ramifications” for speaking out.
Vancouver-native Cpl. Glen Kirkland, who nearly died in Afghanistan five years ago when he was ambushed by the Taliban, said mere days he right after appearing before a parliamentary committee he received a notice in the mail of his impending discharge.
“I was absolutely taken aback,” Kirkland told CTV News. “I was pretty much speechless and pretty devastated.”
I really can’t express how much I despise the right wing in general and the Harper government in particular. The right are a bunch of corrupt cowards who will sacrifice as many people as they think they can get away with to pad the bottom line. To do this they will lie with impunity because they know the cowards with the cash, the cowards on the bench and the cowards in the police force will support them.
Jeez what has happened to Canada under the most cowardly and useless piece of crap to have been PM?
