And those waits are going up.
With the Trudeau government consumed in scandal, their failures are adding up behind the scenes.
In the 2015 campaign, Trudeau made big promises regarding Veterans, saying he would fix the many broken aspects of Veterans Affairs and help Canada’s heroes get the help they need.
It hasn’t happened.
In fact, things are getting worse.
According to a recent report, there are now about 40,000 Veterans waiting for word on whether their financial assistance applications have been approved.
Of course, while they are waiting, those Veterans can’t access disability benefits.
The number of Veterans waiting for those disability benefits has surged by 11,000 than the year before.
And to make matters even worse, the waits are going up.
Over 1 out of 3 Veterans are waiting for longer than four months.
So, the backlog is getting bigger and the delays are going up, even as the Trudeau government promised the exact opposite.
We are at the point where Canadians can see that all of Trudeau’s promises were empty, and he has no intention of keeping them.
