Victoria councillor says military should pay for Remembrance Day ceremonies

June 12, 2019



it's not uncommon to hear politicians on both the left and the right fight over which side is most effectively and most adequately paying respect to veterans well now we have a new contest a Victoria city councillor who seems eager to take the prize for being the most disrespectful to veterans in Canadian politics yes that councillor is Ben easton who last week introduced a motion and debated emotion on the 75th anniversary of d-day the motion to try to get the government of canada and the military to foot the bill for victoria's Remembrance Day observances yes he said that with billions and billions of dollars the department of national defense is better suited to pay for Remembrance Day ceremonies in cities like Victoria this was in response to a debate that was actually about the cost of policing the various events like Canada Day and yes Remembrance Day that exists in Victoria and similarly in other cities around the country so there are a number of questions that are raised here number one what on earth is wrong with you now being anti military and anti veteran is not new for this particular councillor he previously argued against a potential bid from Victoria for the Invictus games the Olympics if you will for wounded warriors because he says that allowing injured veterans to compete in a sporting event in Victoria would be to support militarism you can't make this stuff up so as much as he wants to couch this as something about respecting taxpayers his words it's actually about disrespecting veterans disrespecting the military and disrespecting the sacrifices that have been made by veterans and here's a newsflash for you Remembrance Day is not pro war it's not pro military in fact it's quite anti-war it's about honoring and remembering the lives lost lay down for king and country by so many people in Canada for the greater good because of a love of their country and their countrymen Remembrance Day is about honoring them not about celebrating or glorifying war this old trope is basically for left-wingers in their pajamas on the internet that Oh supporting Remembrance Day wearing a poppy these are all things that glorify conflict and glorify killing when an actual fact it could not be further from the truth but this is a man who holds public office a man who despite his crusade against veterans continues to get re-elected to public office and even Lisa helps the mayor of Victoria who's so far left she wanted Johnny McDonald's statue taken away from City Hall voted against this now Benison apologized but only sort of he says he shouldn't have raised the discussion on the 75th anniversary of d-day to which I say why not if you're going to say to Canadians that you do not care about the sacrifices of veterans why not double down why not have it on d-day heck why not raise the debate on Remembrance Day itself we as Canadians we as freedom-loving Canadians Oh our lives and our liberty to those men and women who have served their country in the Armed Forces and in particular those who laid down their lives the freedom to be a worthless twit on City Council the freedom that councillor benefit embraces on a day to day basis well he has the right to do that thanks to those whose honor and whose sacrifice he spits on for true north I'm Andrew Lawton

    These P.O.S. Should be used to bloody our troops as they are charged up in ready for battle.
    It would serve several purposes. Traitors found guilty would face real justice on a battlefield like situation and our soldiers would be bloodied for battle and combat.
    It would be glorious.
    Watching would be mandatory for all citizens.as a warning to leftists traitors and the weak minded that destiny comes for all. Both the guilty and the innocent have finite lives to live. And then it is all over suckers. All that is left of us is maybe a monument and one or two generations that barely new you.

    THEY DIED FOR ALL OF US!!! WE OWE THEM! THEY DO NOT OWE US!!!! I am SO sick of these people, I pray every day people stand up against this and kick these nut case radicals to the curb and elect a gov with SOME COMMON SENSE!! I am not convinced it is Scheer as he seems to want to be a Lib Lite, I had little faith he's going to be much different and will bow to any pressure of Soros or Political Islam that gives him the slightest bit of grief. I honestly think the only one with policies that even sound remotely like those of the Canada I've known my whole life is Max. BUT SOMETHING MUST CHANGE AND NOW BEFORE WE LOSE EVERYTHING!!

    Ok and by that standard, he shld pay for his own retirement. No pension needed for him then. Maybe also pay himself instead of taking a salary for what incompetent work he’s doing as a politician? Sounds fair don’t you think?

    The Councillor is WRONG !!!! He should reflect on what happens to a population that becomes vulnerable when their country is invaded and overrun by an invading force, the terrible conditions forced upon them, the drastic penalties given to those who speak out or contravene the rules of the invaders, the complete and utter destruction of freedom and human rights.
    This is what happened to countries in Europe when Hitler and his Nazi's invaded them. This is what happened in Afghanistan when the Taliban took control after the Russians left. This is what happens regularly in African countries.
    This idiot needs to reflect on just what we have in Canada, our rights and freedoms, that were bought with the blood of those who have served in our military.
    Those who voted for this moron need to reflect and know just who they are voting onto their Council.

    Yes, this is what our military budget is for. A$$hole.

  • Reply Mike Miller June 12, 2019 at 10:00 am

    Actually, our vets did not lay down their lives for our country, unless I missed a war on Canadian soil. They died in foreign wars, for foreign bankers. Our military should stay home, where they are safe, and protect Canada, to keep us safe.

    Victoria councillors hates the Canadian Military just like Jihad Justin and the Islamic Liberals. This is what happens when you have globalist left-wing snowflakes running your province.

    What an asshat! Victoria has a naval base which injects cash into the economy of Victoria. Many times more than what it costs Victoria to pay for Remembrance Day. But should we be surprised that another lefty politician has no clue about the economy?

  • Reply Allan Ross June 12, 2019 at 10:00 am

    A man who claims to be Canadian, an historian, author, and a legal scholar who has visited 82 countries has the sick and twisted idea that we should ask the military to pay the costs of Remembrance Day. Could one of you please tell that fist-fucking-fool son of an inbred idiot that the people who died defending this country that he is leeching off paid for Remembrance Day with their lives and limbs in wars and his scumbag ideas are not needed here? I am guessing he is another ugly son of a whore working with Trudeau to destroy what is left of Canada and create a new country of inbred idiot immigrants who hate the white Christians who built this country as much as he does.
