Integrity Matters: Social Contract with Canadians, Veterans must be honoured – Progressive Canadians

 

In 1917, Prime Minster Robert Borden,Conservative, made this commitment as Canadians soldiers were about to attack Vimy Ridge:

"The government and the country will consider it their first duty to see that a proper appreciation of your effort and of your courage is brought to the notice of people at home that no man, whether he goes back or whether he remains in Flanders, will have just cause to reproach the government for having broken faith with the men who won and the men who died." http://www.canada1867.ca/2014/12/the-harper-governments-contempt-for_30.html

This is a social contract made by the Government of Canada in 1917, that Canadians enlisting are promised that if injured or killed in service Canada will take care of them and their loved ones?

But the Harper Conservative's position is . . .

At no time in Canada's history has any 'social contract' or 'social covenant' been legislated.

The PC Party view . . .

"the PC Party is both progressive and centrist in their politics.  Moreover, they are eager to correct the wrongs that have been done to our Veterans and their families by successive governments.
