Federal Court Rules in Favour of Veterans: Sean Casey in Question Period

Posted on May 1, 2012

Mr. Sean Casey (Charlottetown, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, today the Federal Court ruled in favour of Dennis Manuge and other veterans who have been waging a court battle with the Conservatives over pension clawbacks. The government was wrong to litigate in the first instance, and now the court has ruled.

    Will the Minister of Justice commit today to not appeal this ruling and leave these veterans alone?

    Hon. Peter MacKay (Minister of National Defence, CPC): Mr. Speaker, I believe the member opposite is a lawyer. He would know this decision has just been rendered today by the Federal Court.  The Department of Justice and the Department of National Defence will review this case. Until such time it would be inappropriate to comment further.

    Is it just me, or does Mr MacKay – THE MINISTER OF NATIONAL DEFENCE seem to be against the courts ruling. Goes to show where loyalties lay. Two of the ten (now 11) principles of leadership, driven into you in the military, is “know your troops and promote their welfare.” Followed by “Lead by example.” two tenants Mr MacKay would do well to learn.

    Since I began a veterans advocate, I’ve spoken to numerous politicians and few, with the exception of Mr Casey and Mr Stoffer are willing to listen to the facts straight up with no BS. While ministers generally only show up for the photo ops that will enhance their political careers all the while smiling blankly and checking their watches. If yo need proof, check out any of the photo’s from last years Army Run.
