It is certainly not that way in Alberta. We do not have war veterans wishing to receive war veterans allowance while their wives are receiving $50,000. If this type of program is to be carried on, then at least the allowance when the wife is working should be increased. The present arrangement is not acceptable to me or to a lot of people who are caught in this situation.
