Legal disputes involving veterans cost federal government almost $40 million over two years

The federal government has spent more than $38 million on legal proceedings involving Canada’s veterans over the past two years.

Nearly $1 million of that amount has been spent on legal fees for two lawsuits launched in 2016 by former members of the military who allege they were sexually assaulted or sexually harassed while they were serving.

Another $1.3 million was spent on legal fees for 73 other cases involving veterans.
