Veterans & Retirees Do Not = Refugees

Today, I'm going to be discussing something here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), that I feel is important.  Hopefully, you'll also find it important.

Here is an article I'm sharing with you, by cbc.ca entitled, Some veterans want more than Ottawa can afford, Trudeau tells town hallhttp://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/justin-trudeau-town-hall-edmonton-1.4515822.

If you clicked on the link to the article, you'll have read that our Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, spoke in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

If you clicked on the link, you'll also have noticed that in addition to the article, there is a video where our Justin Trudeau spoke in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada

If you listened to the video, you'll know that Justin Trudeau is not fully in support of veteransNor, do I believe he's in support of retirees.

Hopefully, you clicked on the link.  If not, you can read some of what I can share with you that was stated (I copied/pasted):

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government is fighting some Canadian veterans in court because they are asking for more than the federal government can afford. 

"Why are we still fighting certain veterans groups in court? Because they're asking for more than we are able to give right now," Trudeau said, answering a question from a veteran, who said he lost his leg to an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan, during a town hall meeting on Thursday evening in Edmonton.

Some people booed that answer, forcing Trudeau to calm the crowd. 

"You are asking for honest answers," he said to the crowd at MacEwan University Sport and Wellness. "The old Veterans' Charter involved lump-sum payments and very little in the way of services."

A veterans' group said earlier this week it is taking its fight over recent changes to the pension system to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Another veteran said that he did not think Trudeau was really listening to veterans and that his government's restoration of the lifelong pension was a "lacklustre" effort at best.

Before the old lifetime pension was eliminated in favour of a lump sum payment, veterans could have received up to $2,700 per month for pain and suffering. Under the restored pension plan the Liberal government introduced, the maximum a wounded soldier would ever see is $1,150 per month.

Wow! 

How awful is this? To me, it's truly sinful and the worst Justin Trudeau can do to Veterans, and retirees.

Why do I think this?

Justin Trudeau is in support of giving Refugees income for themselves and family.

Do they receive as little as what Veterans and retirees do?  I don't believe so.

I believe that's not the case, because I met a Muslim family who came to Canada, several years ago.  And, their monthly income was more than $4,100.00.  How do I know this?  They requested to rent a home property that I used to own.

To me, this is so very sinful of Justin Trudeau and all who do work for him.

Thinking of the sinfulness, made me think of James 4:17, "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."

Justin Trudeau knows he is supposed to do good to Veterans... and people who have retired.  But, it is obvious that He is not doing it, so what he's doing, is sinful.

Please, pray that Justin Trudeau will not be re-elected when the next election happens, which won't be for a while.

Also, pray that Justin Trudeau will realize that he's doing wrong for Canadians who have worked and supported our government with tax paid, annually.  Especially, Veterans, who have done so much for Canada!

Thank you for joining me in prayer.

If you do, I believe God will bless you.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
