.As @ThatsMrNeil points out: Let's take a walk down Veterans Affairs memory lane with the @CPC_HQ and Top Gun O'Toole. You remember the Top Gun, right? He claims to be a staunch defender of Veteran's right, yet he and the Conservative Party failed Canada's Vets. #thread #cdnpoli
.Remember when > Harper govt shut down 9 Veterans Affairs offices to save $3.78 million & the same year increased its advertising budget by more than $4 million to buy playoff hockey ads? We sure remember those crying, elderly vets looking to be heard by the VA minister. #cdnpoli
.@ThatsMrNeil makes a good point here: Remember when Auditor general Michael Ferguson found the Conservative government and Top Gun O'Toole was failing returning injured veterans by imposing up to eight months waiting time for mental health help?

.Remember when the Harper Government and Veterans Affairs allowed $1.13 billion in veterans funding to lapse? Rather than using the money to help Canada's veterans, they chose to send the money to general revenue to help the Conservatives achieve an "on paper" surplus. #cdnpoli

.Let's have a look at the Even More agregious >> Remember when the Harper Government used private medical records to smear veteran Sean Bruyea, after he spoke out against legislation to strip veterans of life-time pensions? Erin hopes not.

.In 2011, Harper Govt & Veterans Affairs found an accounting error that cost pensioners $165M, they did not notify those affected or reimburse them. They said nothing. Many of the pensioners are now dead. They knowingly short changed elderly vets. #cdnpoli
