The Day Julian Fantino Ran From the Wife of a Veteran
He has betrayed Canadian veterans, he has disrespected them, he has nickel and dimed them to death.
There is never enough money to help the wounded, the elderly, and their families, or keep regional offices open.
But it turns out there is all the money in the world to try to make Julian Fantino look good.
The federal Conservative government is spending millions of dollars on advertising to counter complaints from veterans that their sacrifices are not being adequately compensated.
Because you know, it's not HIS fault so many veterans despise him for disrespecting them
It's THEIR fault.
Mr. Fantino said the ads are necessary because there is a huge amount of “misinformation, miscommunication, confusion,” even on the part of veterans themselves about what benefits are available.
They're too dumb to understand. And he's just trying to REACH them.
The minister denied that the ads were created to promote the government. “It’s just trying to reach those who we are committed and dedicated to serve and to help.”
But when veterans try to reach the number in the propaganda ad, all too often nobody answers the phone.
And when they try to reach Fantino in person, like the wife of this veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder did today...
To try to ask him to help them.
He ran from her like a coward.
An angry Jenifer Migneault chased after Julian Fantino and demanded to speak to the veterans affairs minister following his appearance Thursday at a House of Commons committee hearing.
"We're nothing to you," Migneault said, throwing her arms up in frustration when Fantino — whose image took a bruising in the last encounter — and his staff chose not to stop and explain the government's position.
And all I can say is that a spouse who has lived and cared for someone with PTSD for eight years, deserves our admiration, and all the help and support they can get.
And at the very least Jenifer Migneault deserved a few minutes of Fantino's precious time.
"A man like that is supposed to be so proud of my husband's service? C'mon, that's a joke.… We're the ones who live 24 hours a day with their heroes."
Because she's absolutely right. The Cons should not be spending millions on propaganda to try to make a loser like Fantino look good. They should be spending it to help veterans and their families who need it so desperately.
That's what we do in Canada. How hard is that to understand?
But then they are the Cons, Canada will not be Canada again until they are defeated.
You know what I think about Fantino...
Jenifer Migneault deserves our thanks for trying to tell him what so many feel.
The man should never have been made a minister.
He is a loser and a coward.
And he should be fired TOMORROW...
