Harper better hold his wallet, there's no way he will voluntary change the nvc . Too much money, hes already cutting 2billion from DND budget. I think this lawsuit is a good idea but its going to be awhile maybe 10 years before this thing is before a court

VANCOUVER - A group of Afghanistan war veterans has filed a class-action lawsuit against the federal government, saying the disability payment regime under the New Veterans Charter violates their human rights.

The lawsuit filed in B.C. Supreme Court on Tuesday claims disability payments are decided arbitrarily and aren't enough to support soldiers who have been injured.

"There's no other group of people who can be ordered to put their life on the line for their country," said Don Sorochan, the Vancouver lawyer representing six current and former soldiers named in the suit.

In return, there is a social covenant between those men and women and the citizens of this country to take care of them if they are injured, he said.

"It's a promise by us, as the people of Canada, that we will look after those who put their lives on the line for us and who put their bodies on the line for us..............
