Investigations: Canadian Forces Failing Injured and Ill Vets

Solid investigation here from The Ottawa Citizen on Canada's failing support program for injured and mentally ill vets.

A freeze on funds has left support units overwhelmed and unable to cope with the quickly growing demand for help from soldiers needing help after returning from Afghanistan, the story says.

"The army doesn't look after its injured soldiers," one severely injured Afghan vet said. "If I had worked at Walmart I would have been looked after better."
