I like to see the detail of the fourth. I was directed by my CM to apply for this benefit and was denied. I would not of applied if she hadn't mentioned it. He or she is the one who has access to my file and is the professional? ( Maybe, this will allow me to be reconsidered and included in receiving this benefit).
And like always with VAC, this is only wishful thinking.
Wait and see I guess.

well as predicted by many they would make positive changes BEFORE the election . so im guessing these changes WILL be completed before the election . im guessing more small targeted changes like these will come . don't forget they will probably also want to dangle a post election carrot or two.

I must say im chomping on the bit right now to read the actual legislation cant wait for that.

If you receive the Attendance Allowance the new caregiver might not apply? The details and exemptions will be interesting!

If you receive EIA then you can't receive the PIA or supplement ? Does these new rules change that?

At this point in the game and at the clip these announcements are coming I'd say the Cons are "all in". If they do not get these benefits, improvements implemented before cabinet stands for the summer then an election then it's suicide by stupidity for their party.

They are leaking all the info for national news coverage and all it will take is 1 pissed off vet who is affected by any or all of these changes and Canada will see how they are treating vets.

Just my opinion

I agree with teen. These are just too big of promises, for them to let die on the order paper, before the election. They might let one die, but not four, or more.

I can't even see one dieing Rex. Only way is if the opposition pulls a douche move and blocks it somehow.

I meant if they had only made one promise, they might get away with letting it die. But with an entire suite of promises, they cannot afford to let any of them slip.

As usual they are throwing out scraps to us and thinking they are doing a good thing. In my other Parallel Universe there is no NVC, we are recieving a minimum of 75% tax free of our release salary, if we are deemed totally and permanently disabled we don't have to go and prove it every year, and PIA will automatically be included and be tax free. Spouses who had to cut back hours on their jobs or quit to look after us also get the 75% tax free benefit and not only $5000 a year which is mostly taxable.

Well Harper is not making any big promises, just little tidbits or scraps, before this election. What I feel needs to be done is instead just talking how about just doing it, then letting us know it is done.

Well all the proposed changes don't all have to wait from what I'm reading an enhancement to a program can be done right away. for example the reserve ELB increase (starts next month) and i would say the PIA changes could fall under this category by that reasoning.The others are new programs or grants though so its hard to say on them all.

Social media the new tool to voice our concerns.  It will make it harder to keep a veteran uninformed now a day.  Imagine the outrage announcing all of these changes and no one sees any! Well! if the pilot made it back to base or wherever he was heading 100% of the time with Mr. OToole as the Navigator, hopefully he will put his military training as navigator and help  all of us veterans 100% to finally have a sense of wellbeing,  peace of mind and a feeling of respect.  I have respected and only want the same in return .  FIX ALL THE GAPS. Question .
