On 2014-05-09, there was a ceremony and event held in honour of those that were needlessly killed in a fiasco war, a war that served primarily for the betterment of bullshit politicians and greedy capitalists. As a complete insult to the lost, missing and those remaining, the Harper Hero Club wasted more tax payers dollars on a day of pompous self gratification that only really benefits the ego's of the crony's that pushed for participation in the war in the first place. No matter the merits or ethical standings relating to the war, there are many Veterans (not all of course) that are struggling to adjust to civilian life after seeing their buddies get blown up and having to help scrape guts off the sides of hummers. Yet again, this government has proven its true nature by the complete self serving agendas that it promotes and thrusts upon us. This pageantry and showboating is to the determent of most Canadians, and the shifting away and ignorance towards longer term solutions that truly benefit Veterans and all Canadians is yet another pathetic sign of how the Tories prey on Canadian apathy. We are only as good as we treat each other and the Day of Honour is important to those mourning, but use a certain degree of temperance in the grandiosity of what is glorified, or lose sight of what really matters, like the ones living right beside us.
