I need to explain:
IVAC provides monetary compensation for Quebec victims. What’s hanging in the balance is $600 of compensation for my sister’s funeral expenses.
I made my claim (11 months ago) not for the $600, but to point out flaws in the system so that IVAC might be reformed for other victims.
There are others who are more diplomatic in their approach (http://www.afpad.ca/); I provide the hammer effect. It is an alternative to the normal political approach. Both approaches – together – will lead to reform.
