Sat as a key member of the Parliamentary Committee dedicated to improving Veterans Affairs that precipitated billions in new funding for Canada’s Veterans and their families, such as:

Providing Veterans and their spouses/widows with financial security after age 65
Made Reservists equal with Canadian Armed Forces Regular Force members when injured on duty
Opened over 20 new front line mental health clinics to support Veterans in need

Secured by-partisan support and unanimously passed a Parliamentary Motion to end Violence Against Women. This motion led to a Parliamentary Hearing with a report to change how our society educates men and boys and to provide additional support for women who are abused
Elected Chair of the Steel Caucus that pressured the Government to address steel dumping on the international market. Ed Fast, Canada’s Trade Minister, visited Sault Ste. Marie in August and confirmed our Government is working to improve the remedy system. With the historic signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership, our Government is setting up the framework necessary to challenge illegal steel dumping on world markets


  1. Providing Veterans and their spouses/widows with financial security after age 65.This is somehow misleading.That is a lie Military pensions claw backed at age 65.PSHC plan increased 30 % more expensive.VAC claims denied and access to VA benefits denied.Closed VAC centres.How do I know this? My VA claim was denied which denies my access to any veteran affairs benefits.This how thousands of veterans were treated to save 1.5 billion to balance the budget on the backs of Veterans.
