Letters: Veterans deserve better

I am wondering how it is that the federal government can deny families of war dead expenses to travel to ceremony in Ottawa.

I am wondering how it is that the federal government can deny families of war dead expenses to travel to ceremony in Ottawa. After pressure they said they would, but we hear it’s charity groups helping families.

I find this to be another example of disgraceful actions by our elected officials. Considering we pay all expenses for these crooks that only take from the people and give to government insiders and their families.

Does anyone remember Chuck Strahl running on the promise to rid of us MPs gold pensions? Well now he collects $112,000 a year pension plus patronage appointments.

Governments both federal and provincial are desperate to sell our resources for quick profit for their corporate friends. What happened to selling finished products, we used to do that when there was a middle class in this country. I suggest that we the people are being sold out and lied to by all levels of government.

This will only get worse as there are never consequences for theses people.
