Vet­er­ans to stage protest Nov. 6

The Compass - - OPINION -

Dear edi­tor,

Cana­dian vet­er­ans are hav­ing a hard time get­ting by with the red tape and lack of sup­port that we are get­ting from Vet­er­ans Af­fairs and the Cana­dian govern­ment.

Please post this let­ter in your Letters to the Edi­tor as soon as pos­si­ble in or­der to start aware­ness in your re­gion of what will tran­spire on Nov. 6.

While our young sol­diers re­main em­bat­tled with the Tal­iban in Afghanistan, our vet­er­ans are try­ing to get by and sup­port our troops, but it is get­ting dif­fi­cult to stand by and watch as their own sup­port wanes.

The Mil­i­tary Vet­er­ans of Canada have de­cided to ask Cana­di­ans and our Mem­bers of Par­lia­ment to help us with our qual­ity of life by mak­ing changes to the New Vet­er­ans Char­ter and other poli­cies that have caused much dis­may in our lives.

On Nov. 6 at 11 a.m., your vet­er­ans will be tak­ing their point of views to their MP’s of­fices across Canada to gain sup­port from them and other Cana­di­ans who feel they are be­ing left to their own de­vices.

Our vet­er­ans de­serve bet­ter treat­ment.

Just as we do on Re­mem­brance Day each year, please be a proud Cana­dian on Nov. 6 and show your sup­port by at­tend­ing the Cana­dian Vet­er­ans Na­tional Day Of Protest. March along­side our vet­er­ans to show our govern­ment that YOU CARE for those who serve, have served, and who have fought for this coun­try.

Please Canada, sup­port our troops, past and present. Robin Brent­nall
