"The lawsuit argues a social covenant was first promised to those who served in the Canadian Armed Forces during the First World War and has been continually promised since then, through policy, political speeches and veterans' legislation, until now."Harper's lawyers were in court and BC today arguing that there is no such social contract and that (in effect) veterans are just being greedy. I'm not sure why people in uniform continue to smile and pose with Harper unless, due to the military chain of command, they are not allowed to refuse.
Meanwhile Harper, for "serving" his country in the PM's office where he risks paper cuts, and the possibility of falling over during a photo op, is making a very comfortable $315 thousand plus and if he is booted from office in 2015, he will leave with a pension worth about $5.5 million.
