    VAC wait times

    IT is much faster, as doctors realise, VAC pays them for their time. So Instead of just having their normal paycheque via the forces, civilian doctors treat and diagnose issues much faster then Mil. It also has alot to do with the thank you for your service mentality. Civilian doctors are...

    Insurance companies are not hindered with red tape and politics. I am curious as to how many employees of VAC are actually working on files and applications. I am certain that they could of enticed a few adjustors from insurance companies to jump the fence with all that unused VAC money from...

    Additional Pain and Suffering Compensation

    It is because they are lumping in the CIA into the APSC. So any CIA applications are being pushed into that as well. I have a CIA grade assessment from APR 2018 still in adjudication. My Case Manager is MIA, so the intake recommended I throw another one in, copy paste the data from one to the...

    CPC Leadership Discussion 2020-21

    Card Carry CPC Member here, The party is sick, IT needs a major clean up. Someone typed earlier, they need to get back to center. CPC shouldnt be preaching religion, and having a hardline religious leader was not going to work out well. Charisma, was lacking, desperately. Scheer was a...

    Western Alienation - Split from General Election 2019

    I have to disagree on that claim. Quebec has such a weak claim because it relies upon the handout from federal government. We will be on oil for the long term foreseeable future. Quebecs logging and Maple Syrup export, wont be able to support the social programs in itself. Alberta could prove...

    Western Alienation - Split from General Election 2019

    Does the UN not require landlocked countries to have access to tidal waters? Well those that at least are part of the UN? As ancient and stubborn as it is? Besides, they would just run the pipe straight south and sell direct to US, or purchase a pipeline there. Remember the US wants to make...

    It really isn't, I work in IT as a career. Its an ancient outdated system, I mean as in early 2000s is when what they are using was developed. I can write on a whiteboard for weeks as to how to improve it, new additions new ideas. I know people say "its not healthy, or good to be stressed over...

    VAC Entitlement Policy Change

    Exactly what I am after, I just want them to acknowledge medical conditions. That way if anything comes back, or any changes in the future, I have all my ducks in a row. Still ongoing and waiting, currently at 14 Months for the Departmental review, that shows a DSHL of over 325, which makes it...
