Thank you, Mr. Chair.
   Thank you for being here. I truly appreciate it. I have a number of questions, and I'll try to be succinct. I look forward to your answers.
   The minister's mandate letter says that one of the goals is to “re-establish lifelong pensions as an option for our injured veterans...[while ensuring] that every injured veteran has access to financial advice and support so that they can determine the form of compensation that works best for them and their families.”
   Veterans took that to mean that a lifelong pension would be re-established, period. Can you elaborate on what this does in fact mean, and how it differs from what veterans expected during the federal campaign in 2015?

Bernard Butler: You're absolutely right. This is a very clear element of the minister's mandate commitment. It has been the subject of much discussion and debate over time.
   I think you're absolutely right. There are some stakeholders who interpret it literally, meaning re-establish or bring back the Pension Act as an option. There are other views of that, though, in terms of whether it may really mean bringing back or supporting financial security in one form or another for veterans.
   At the end of the day, I can tell you that the department continues to do a fair amount of work on this particular piece, but it will be the minister who will come to cabinet when he is in a position to do that and it will be the Government of Canada that will respond to this significant policy issue.

Well I would say by the silence of this life time pension, that we are about to get shafted once again. If it has taken them 2 yrs, just to come up with the dreaded Option plan, than all the policy makers at VAC should quit.
