Live chat: Soldier struggles with benefits, pension
Join us Thursday at noon ET for 'Newsmaker at Noon.'
We'll be joined by Cpl. Greg Kirkland, an injured Canadian soldier who testified about his struggle for health benefits and then was notified that he will be discharged in six months, despite assurances from Defence Minister Peter MacKay that he would suffer “no ramifications” for speaking out.
We have also invited a spokesperson from the Department of National Defence & The Canadian Forces.
