No, we will likely never know who was involved in the cover up, beyond whoever was the Minister at the time. But it's more about holding VAC, as an agency, and the GoC responsible, more than any one individual or decision maker.

That is a blatant breach of their fiduciary duty to disabled Veterans, and thus the lawsuit. At least with the SISIP class action, the government thought they were acting in a legal manner, but this time, they knew they owed us money, and so keeping it, was nothing short of theft.
I don’t disagree, but from what I’m reading many people were aware over many levels and governments , though there will be compensation, l just can’t see there being a firing squad of all those involved in the cover up. Will we ever see a complete list of names of who knew what and when.

Fire their ass..ets off. All they get is bonuses for messing lives of Veterans.
No accountability for their 'work' at all.

You know man. There was another member recently on CSAT with your modus operandi.

I've chose to ignore him, so now I choose to ignore you.

Best of luck, now bugger off.

yes but they are calling it a “ mistake” not a cover up, and everyone makes mistakes, if it could be a 100% that there was underhandedness involved, you might see someone fired, but I doubt the names of those directly involved will even make the papers

When you know what your talking about sleeping dog, you get back to me.

And standing shoulder to shoulder with fellow vets takes precedent anyway.
Is the Gov. not calling this an oversight?

It's not about the money. It's about holding people accountable.
