This was incredibly powerful. A wounded Canadian veteran recently confronted liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a town hall style meeting. He made the point that Trudea is welcoming former ISIS members back into Canada while not standing up for the veterans who fight for Canada’s freedom.

Canadian Veteran to Trudeau: I Wasn’t Prepared for ‘Canada Turning Its Back on Me’
The question came during a public town hall Thursday eventing where Trudeau appeared before a large audience in Edmonton, Canada. The prime minister was asked by Brock Blaszczyk, a veteran of the Afghanistan war who is permanently disabled after losing a leg on deployment, if he had broken his campaign promise to give veterans the compensation and support they earned.
Blaszczyk cited a promise Trudeau and the Liberal Party made during the 2015 federal elections; Trudeau made the claim that if he was elected, elected veterans would no longer have to fight the government in court for equitable compensation for injuries sustained while in service. The Liberal Party also promised to bring back life-long disability pensions to veterans, a program that was replaced by lump-sum payments in 2006.
“You made the promise that, and I’ll quote here, ‘no veteran would be forced to fight their own government for the support and compensation they have earned,'” Blaszczyk said. “Yet you are still currently in a legal battle with veterans regarding equal support and compensation to their peers … We have two standard of veterans who fought in the same war. The ones prior to 2006 and the ones after 2006.”
“My question is, what veterans were you talking about? Was it the ones who fought for the freedoms and values that you so proudly boast about or was it the ones who fought against?” Blaszczyk asked.
