I thought Navrat was already in charge of all the bartenders at the Hamilton Legion.

got mine today as well. gotta agree with nav that amount divided amongst the class is about 1400 with no scrambling to try to get ahead of the next guy. but then again it was never really intended for us just a payoff to the GOC,S lead negotiator. well I am happy it will help some but I kinda hope they choke on the rest.

exactly sparrow there is enough funds for everyone to use it but in truth only 25% of the class tops will be in a position to use it. but hold the frack on that's still to many for the GOC,s lead negotiator so since out of those few that are still young enough to have kids in university may be on there last year ore two of university lets put some restrictions on it. it will be interesting to see how many dependents in there last year of university this year will get it this year if any at all. this fund will shrink a bit over the next 5 years but in ten to 15 years will be larger than the initial amount maybe by a very large amount.

you are starting to think like me sparrow witch is not a good thing lol. but yes it should be retroactive. the fact is is that its not that's why I say it was never really meant for us in the first place just a payoff to the lead negotiator.

since this is written in stone there is not a lot we can do except to ask that all dependents on their final year be given priority.this I think should be done immediately.

always question authority

My last child being educated starts her final semester in January...wonder if she will make the cut? Why only 535? Should be available to all...she can't wait until she gets the $1300 to finish!! Seems odd at best.

"What we seem to have here is a lack of communication!"

Just called and the 535 limit per year is a court ordered amount. So of the 7000+ class members only 4,013 will be guarenteed to get it over the next 7.5 years.

I guess the balance of the class that did not get their bursary will have to 'duke it out' with the ELB members.

This is not the way it was explained to me by Peter D during the negotiations. I was told all SISIP class members that apply get the bursary and the balance left over of the $10 million will be given to the ELB after 7.5 years.

teen im guessing due to vets with no kids and kids not going to post secondary and mostly due to the average age of the disabled vets in this class im guessing top end aprox 1750 vets will be in a position to take advantage of the bursary with the restrictions on the number per year even if they gave priority to students in their final year of post secondary their will be less than that. if they don't give priority to those in their last year it will be far less than that.

windfall for some lawyers pet project

the way I see it anyway

The settlement order provides for a $10 million bursary fund to be distributed to class members and members of their family. The bursary fund will be administered by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.

Information about the bursary fund can be found at the AUCC's website: www.aucc.ca/veterans.

I read in the AUCC all the stuff. We can give our bursery to our...... niece. So also if we got a lot of old veteran, if every veteran take or give his bursery to a younger member of his family, a lot of us will not be able to claim our bursery. I would prefer a sure amount than a first ask, first have. Some course only take a year or two........and if you are the last one to ask for your busery....... can you claim it after your course is finish like the year after because you were the 536 claiming for his bursery during the year of your course..... i will call AUCC in january to have an answer to this question
