Mr. Casey took advantage of a temporary opposition majority on Air Max 90 the committee last week to turn its discussion to reductions of $226-million over two years from the department’s $3.5-billion budget. The committee had been looking at ways to commemorate veterans in the 21st century and the Conservatives were not pleased to see the topic changed Air Max 91 without their approval.They did allow the inquiry into the budget cuts to proceed for one day. Without consulting the opposition, they invited two Veterans Affairs bureaucrats to a meeting on Tuesday to explain that the cuts would not affect veterans benefits and services. Then the meeting went behind closed doors.When the public was allowed back into the committee room at a Thursday meeting, the discussion had returned to the topic of commemorative gestures. What went on while the committee was in camera is a secret but it is apparent that the Conservatives used Air Max 93 their majority to refocus the discussion on their preferred topic. The Veterans Affairs bureaucrats told the committee the reason the budget can be cut Air Max 95 without affecting veterans is that the number of traditional veterans from the Second World War and Korea is expected to decline significantly over the next five years as they succumb to old age.
