The Ombudsman's charge that recent changes to the disability compensation regime shortchange veterans is supported by this Globe & Mail article:
www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/new-veterans-charter-shortchanges-our-disabled-soldiers/article1682761/?cmpid=rss1 and the Ombudsman himself speaks out on a host of injustices facing veterans here: www.ombudsman-veterans.gc.ca/new-nouvelle/introduction-eng.cfm . (The Ombudsman is an admirable advocate for veterans, by the way, and it is dismaying that his term is not being renewed.)
If you think that Canada's veterans deserve better, you can contact the minister's office here: www.vac-acc.gc.ca/general/sub.cfm?source=department/department-officials/bio-min and write your MP and Senators. (Trusting that, like me, you know who your MP is but not your Senators, I dug up this list, which you can sort by province www.parl.gc.ca/common/senmemb/senate/isenator.asp?Language=E ).
Meanwhile, I wish Jayson and his family the best and urge them to plug into this and their other high school networks; you never know what resources might be available to help on a personal level, or to further the cause generally.
