When minions speak –

with one comment

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.

Once more, into the fray…with Michele Drapeau Law Office

Once again, after winning in Federal Court, our battle has been extended by Treasury Board Secretariat. We find ourselves having to take TBS back into Federal Court to finalize our claim for Home Equity Assistance. Our family has carried this load for 5 years now, won our grievances and won in federal court, but TBS continues to SPEND YOUR TAX DOLLARS denying our entitlements.

The only way we can get accountability is by voting, and taking them to court.

We are once again asking for financial support to assist with this legal battle, so that the TBS will be held accountable to follow their own policies, instead of getting away with the use of Blanket Denials for hundreds of Canadian Military families. Details available at www.healoss.wordpress.com

Thank you so much for your continued support in this quest for Government Accountability.

Government continues to deny soldiers entitlements after 5 year fight

leave a comment »

I have been away from the computer lately, as I have had to change jobs after 26 years. Seems that a few supervisors wanted to peek into my medical records, and they got caught. My first day back at work and I got my posting message. I could not make this stuff up!

The following link provides the current details on the Government of Canada’s latest attempt to delay and deny the relocation entitlements ordered by the Federal Court of Canada.

I encourage all military families to have a look at the lengths that the government is going through to deny us entitlements on relocations. $73,000 equity loss, over $250,000 in losses, health, career, QOL etc.

Comments welcomed. Assessments of the Government’s motion to strike are also welcomed by the layperson, barrack room lawyer and Barrister alike.

Canadian Human Rights Complaint-Major Brauer and the Systematic Denial of Relocation Entitlements

leave a comment »

Good evening all:

As it has been 4 years and 8 months since we were unfairly denied our Home Equity Assistance entitlements, it is time to get some closure. Tomorrow, I will be submitting my observations to the Human Rights Committee as a complaint. It is hoped that this external review will not be dismissed as were my “disclosure of wrongdoing” or “claim against the Crown”. Both of these were dismissed without investigation. The department of justice lawyer (a Major in the CAF) went so far as to state that this was a political, not a legal issue.

As my family continues to carry the debt and its horrible effects – it has cost us more than we could have imagined. I still have an opportunity to make things right for my family and for those who serve, but not without resolving this grievance. By communicating my Human Rights complaint, hopefully some of the effects of coming forward will be resolved and we can get on with the mission, and the family.

Wish me luck and please share.

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?

Treasury Board Secretariat delays Home Equity Assistance decision

Latest update from the Treasury Board of Canada…nothing. Not even an e-mail.

Federal Court Case was decided in May 2014, and TBS refuses to provide an update http://politwitter.ca/page,/videos/id/41803 .  Our entitlements have now been denied almost five years and we are getting very little support. We get no support from the legion, MFRC (aside from a Christmas hamper), or the government. We have received some assistance from my workplace, Jumpstart for Kids and our Church.

If you know anyone interested in historical material, antiques or military collectables, please see my personal items for sale. This is how we are currently supporting our family. Hundreds of items up to 65% off at http://stores.ebay.ca/UNDER-PRESSURE-ANTIQUES.  This is not a store, these are our possession for sale in order to buy time for TBS to abide by the Federal Court of Canada’s decision.
