MP Mathyssen Asks Minister When He Will Implement Ombud's Recommendations

Mr. Speaker, members of the Canadian Armed Forces have been saying for years that their grievance system is broken. Today's ombudsman's report confirmed this.

On average, Canadian Armed Forces members have to wait 1,000 days to get compensated when there is a mistake with their pay. People are frustrated, they are tired and they are angry.

Our men and women who bravely serve our country and keep Canadians safe deserve better. The government keeps failing our Armed Forces. Will the minister tell us the steps he will take to implement the ombud's recommendations?
