2009 Briefing Note on HEA

with one comment

This info just recieved through Access to Information. The BN (2009) identifies the costs of home loss to DND, the impact on families and implications. Make your own judgement, however coupling this (https://healoss.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/2009-cfirp-briefing-note.pdf) brifing note with the 2011 briefing note (https://healoss.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/bn-on-hea.pdf)…well, I don’t think I need to say it, but we’ve been had by our own org.

This is shameful, but at least I know the origins and the blockers.

Briefing note to the Minister of National Defence. This is a must read. Click here: BN on HEA

aps-paa-2008-eng“The number of grievances may seem insignificant, but three factors combine to make HEA worthy of examination and comment. The first is the severity of the losses suffered by the grievors; the second is the inability of the CF to provide relief; and the third is the prospect of further similar grievances due to the current trends in the real estate market”(CFGBA 2011).

For 5 years, Treasury Board Secretariat has relied on the fallacy that military members do not speak out. That was a bad call.


Canadian Armed Forces are trained to do the right thing, never pass a fault, and to stand up for those who cannot. That is what a five year battle has become for countless military families.

Personally, the fight has cost me all, and there are no assurances that I will be successful, however I have had an impact. No more to troops have to suffer, applications are now being forwarded to TBS (without the need for a grievance), the word is out that this branch of our own government cannot count on the silence of the troops and Treasury Board Secretariat has been exposed of having a blanket policy denying 100% of the applications which were supposed to help military families when relocating from depressed markets.

In January, I take the Crown to federal court again. The last appearance, we won. Hands down, caught the TBS cheating and yet, they did not pay. Now, we have a new hired gun. Take a moment and look at our side of the story in our Argument, and share your opinion. Should any “public servant”, employee, military member have to fight this hard for their entitlements, or to protect their family?  Should any one have to re-fight in court to have it settled?

On January 19th, follow me once more down the rabbit hole and stare into the faces of our Government who decry…

“we do not owe our soldiers a duty of care”

in an attempt of getting out of following their own reimbursement policy.

As this SECOND judicial review is expected to cost $20,000 out of pocket, we are requesting donations at http://www.gofundme.com/2j18gw

Home Equity Assistance ATIP response is now online at https://healoss.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/a201200942.pdf for your reading pleasure. It is very interesting to have a look behind the curtain to see how our administration is (mis)managed.

Highlights include:

recommendation to apply a “Blanket policy” by DND; and

Briefing note to the Chief of Defence Staff minimizing the HEA issue by stating it only affects 1% of the troops.

Now that’s looking after the troops!
