Dear Mr. Walbourne: 

Thank your for your correspondence on September 11 2014 in which you include your preliminary findings and recommendations on the June 2014 Report of the Standing Committee on Veterans Affairs, The New Veterans Charter: Moving Forward. I have also sent this response to Mr. Guy Parent, Veterans Ombudsman.

I appreciate your taking the time to write about this important issue. I have advised departmental officials to work with your offices to address these recommendations in a timely manner.

I trust that this is helpful, and thank you for your continued interest in the well-being of Canadian Armed Forces personnel.

Yours truly,
