To the editor,
Across this great country of our Canada we have a good number of proud Canadians and they are our veterans. Both men and women have served our country, myself being one of them. We have served in many conflicts around the world and we are very proud of it.
But now there is a person in Ottawa by the name of Julian Fantino, the minister of Veteran Affairs, who has turned his back on all veterans by closing offices across Canada and not keeping a meeting with them on time – and then walking out of the meeting. That to me is just thumbing his nose at us veterans. And then standing in the House of Commons and giving a very weak apology.
Well folks that is not good enough. He needs to resign as the minster of Veterans Affairs. Now is the time for all of us as veterans to speak up and call your local MP, write letters and be heard for the man is out to lunch and cares nothing for us as veterans. We are veterans and proud of having served our country. And now we want the respect that we deserve and the office left open so that we do not have to travel miles away from our home to get service. And oh, by the way, there were no offices on the list in Ontario and Quebec that were to close... why is that I wonder? So to all veterans speak up and be heard for that time has come.
