Injured Canadian Veterans Disability Pension Suspended For Being a Whistleblower.

I am a Canadian Veteran who was injured multiple times during my service to Canada. I am suffering from the long term consequences of those injuries. Denied access to treatment and benefits in accordance with the law for all but one injury.  I've had that one small VAC disability pension illegally suspended by the current federal regime since they took office for being a whistleblower. My Registered Letters, couriered letters, and emails to PM Justin Trudeau outlining my allegations against VAC have never been responded to by the PM. The allegations against VAC have not been dealt with in a meaningful fashion to date. Reprisals have followed since filing my grievances with The Office of the Veterans Ombudsman, The Minister of Veterans Affairs, and PM Justin Trudeau. The paper trail leads directly to the Prime Ministers Office.

In the past I noticed financial irregularities with some prescription claims submitted by certain local Pharmacists to VAC for reimbursement. I reported these questionable claims immediately to VAC, on multiple occasions. VAC staff were not interested in taking action. The Office of the Veterans Ombudsman whitewashed their investigation, and then denied me access to disclosure on four separate requests. The Ombudsman at the time Guy Parent, and now Craig Dalton, have refused to provide me with protection from the reprisals launched by VAC as a direct result of filing a grievance with their office. Current Ombudsman Craig Dalton is refusing to communicate. The Minister of Veterans Affairs Canada refused to answer my questions or provide assistance. PM Justin Trudeau hasn't bothered to officially respond to me regarding my allegations regarding VAC. Not even a form letter with a stamped signature. The only response to date has been VAC's direct actions in illegally suspending my disability pension, and the refusal to process my additional disability claims for proven service related injuries. This constitutes a breach of trust by PM Justin Trudeau, and his subordinate staff in my opinion. 

The unlawful suspension of my disability pension has cause me extreme financial hardship. In addition, VAC has now denied me due process. My claims for treatment and benefits for other service related injuries have been dismissed arbitrarily, with no opportunity to appeal provided. VAC has now ordered the Bureau of Pension Advocates to unlawfully withdraw their support of my claims. The Bureau, and it's lawyers are supposed to be free from political interference in their legal representation of injured Veterans like myself. Who either can't find a lawyer, and/or can't afford private legal services.  As a result, I now have no lawyer to represent me, and cannot afford a lawyer. Even if I could there is no way I could engage in a decade long legal experience with the federal government, but I guess that's the point? I am in the process of losing my home. I've had my telephone disconnected, and can no longer pay my bills in large part as a result of having my VAC disability pension unlawfully suspended. VAC did not make any attempt to contact me in writing by mail, over the phone[when it was still connected], or by email before the illegal suspension. My pleas for financial assistance to the Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency have been ignored. Apparently the PMO has seen to it that no government agency is to respond to my desperate pleas for assistance. Be advised, even the Department of National Defence Ombudsman is refusing to conduct an investigation into my allegations. Even though they too, are aware of the mountains of physical evidence to prove through. The Royal Canadian Legion is refusing to respond to my correspondence respectfully asking for assistance.

Every Canadian MP and Senator have been contacted begging for help. None has been provided. All main stream Canadian media have been briefed, but have turned a blind eye. PM Trudeau's $600 million dollar gift seems to have had the desired affect.

My VAC disability pension is paid as a matter of right, not privilege! I should not be subjected to reprisals, have to endure extreme financial hardships, and ongoing federal government harassment directed by the PMO in the service of PM Justin Trudeau for simply reporting financial irregularities. Reporting through the chain of command in accordance with proper procedures to VAC, The Office of The Veterans Ombudsman, The Minister for Veterans Affairs, and especially to PM Justin Trudeau. PM Justin Trudeau knows, or should have known, that suspending my disability pension and refusing me due process to teach me a lesson about reporting financial irregularities within a federal government department was a violation of my rights, and the law. He and his thugs apparently don't care, because they know they are protected. None of his politically appointed and controlled Officers of Parliament will ever bite the hand that feeds. Above the law in my opinion.

I wish to have my VAC Disability Pension reinstated immediately. With retroactive compensation for the months my pension has been unlawfully suspended, and interest on that money to also be paid. I demand an end to the campaign of  harassment directed from the PMO, in the service of PM Justin Trudeau and his Minister of Veterans Affairs.

I served Canada, and was honourably discharged. I deserve to be treated with dignity, courtesy, and respect. In accordance with the laws of our nation. I shouldn't be penalized for reporting criminal misconduct. VAC Disability Pensions are earned through blood and sacrifice. Paid as a matter of right, not privilege. I don't think that's too much to ask. Thank you for your support of my petition!
