Canada MUST retroactively fix the ELB clawback of the Pension Act pension, for JUSTICE
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Canada prides itself in being Fair.
In 2012, Canada paid $1.9 Billion to over 10,000 disabled veterans who had Pension Act payments indirectly attached or assigned from Service Income Support Insurance Plan Long Term Disability from 1976 to 2012.
This case was spearheaded by Dennis Manuge & the SISIP class action owes an enormous debt to him.
The Government of Canada has an equivalent program called Earnings Loss Benefits program administered by Veterans Affairs Canada. This program is identical to SISIP LTD but started in 2006 under the New Veterans Charter.
Canada recognized the identical nature of ELB to SISIP LTD after the Manuge case & gave retroactive benefits to these veterans too despite there being no court judgment.
BUT the government, in an amazing shortsighted display of parsimony, decided to limit retroactive benefits to 4 MONTHS!
I'm asking you to send a STERN message to our elected representatives that the veterans that protect our great nation are worth the cost they paid defending our FREEDOM!
It's really simple.
Treat them FAIRLY!
It should offend the reader's sense of Justice & Fair play by this HEINOUS act or I've failed in my intended purpose.
Help correct a GROSS injustice.
You CAN make a difference!
Canada's repeal of the offset under the NVC is an admission of wrongdoing. Why didn't they extend the remedy back to 2006?
