Feds need to stand up for veter­ans

The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

Editor:

Re­mem­brance Day is com­ing up, a day to hon­our our veter­ans and those who serve in the mil­i­tary. This how­ever should be done all year, es­pe­cially by our fed­eral govern­ment.

Re­cently the Lib­eral govern­ment de­cided that they would not spend the money on veter­ans as they al­lo­cated $372 mil­lion left un­spent, and yet claim they saved money.

The fed­eral Con­ser­va­tives did ex­actly the same thing in 2015.

Turns out the two par­ties are the same, with their hypocrisy know­ing no bounds.

Our veter­ans need that fund­ing. We need to call on the fed­eral govern­ment to get that fund­ing to help our veter­ans and in­sure they get the proper fund­ing that is re­quired.
