OTTAWA -- The Canadian military will launch a campaign Thursday to bring the suffering of mental illness -- particularly post-traumatic stress disorder -- out of the shadows.

Wow. Members of the Canadian military suffering from mental illness and PTSD. Who knew? Oh, wait ... we did.

Thanks for asking.

Yup, that Conservative government is all trop-supportingy and $#17.

Except when it comes to actually, y'know, SUPPORTING the goddam troops.

They'll buy you a new tank, eventually. But the resources for the troops are much the same as they've been for the past decade, and access to them doesn't seem all that easy, either.
