TBS – Celebrating 5 years of inhumane treatment of military families

with 2 comments

Today was one of the most difficult days so far. Submitted my application for compassionate status (a career ender) and I am coming to the conclusion that no matter how much I sell, how hard I work or how many jobs I take, I cannot repay the money.  The most frustrating part, is that it is not my fault. I’ve been carrying the HEA debt since 2010 and using all finances to buy time. Since it has been five years and TBS continues to delay and deny, I am left with little else to do but declare. Why did I not declare earlier? Here are a few reasons:

Loss of perfect credit score for 7 years;
resultant inability to relocate in future, inability to loan or co-sign loans for 5
school aged children (jeopardizing their future);
places the focus of blame on the individual, not the CAF/TBS;
subjected to repossessions and harassing collection agencies;
further personal and family humiliation;
it is against my families beliefs to pass debt onto the taxpayer; and
added stressors to an already stressful situation.

All this time, work and effort – at what price? The Treasury Board of Canada has worn me down, destroyed my life and the lives of my family.

At what price?

    Congratulations to Ms d’Auray (former Secretary of the Treasury Board) on her new role as Canada’s ambassador to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris.

    Your role in representing Canada in this important position is an impressive achievement in your career.

    For those who are not aware, Ms. D’auray was the senior public servant responsible for denying the Home Equity Assistance file at TBS. It is sort of ironic to see how the accountability of such atrocious actions, getting caught in the Federal Court of Canada (ref A), had no impact on her career.

    As for the HEA file, it has been almost 5 years without resolution, and 7 months since we won in Federal Court against the Treasury Board. We cannot even get a response from TBS on how long they will sit on this (likely after the election).

    So…how come the good guys continue to get screwed and those who created, hid and failed to resolve the problem are promoted and rewarded? Where is the accountability?

    I wish her the best in her new position and I hope that she can sleep at night knowing there are HUNDREDS of CAF families destroyed because of this maladministration. And I hope your RELOCATION to PARIS goes well.

    Disgusting treatment of our military members and their families.
