Liberals' second budget leaves big questions on vets' pensions, defence spending

Liberals' second budget leaves big questions on vets' pensions, defence spendingThe Liberals checked off many of their remaining promises to veterans in Wednesday's federal budget, but left one big priority marked incomplete: giving injured ex-soldiers pensions for life. Finance Minister Bill Morneau's new fiscal plan did include new spending for veterans and their families, which would cost the government $624 million over five years if everyone who was eligible accessed the services right away. The budget also expands the financial benefits available to family members and others caring for disabled veterans, while making it easier for them to also access career training and counselling services.
