To the editor,
I am writing this letter to address the recent closures of Veterans Affairs offices in our area.
We, the North Nova Highlanders Association, are deeply troubled by this action by our government and feel our veterans are being treated very unfairly, especially considering their ages and medical conditions.
This is going to affect them very deeply and they do not deserve this. The government should look within their own ranks if they feel the need to save a few dollars, not take it out on the backs of the very men and women who have served our country with honour and pride.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that I wrote concerning the local veterans food issue.
Hopefully other people will come on board and help with this issue also. The more voices, the bigger the shout.
President Nova Scotia Highlanders Association, Pictou County Branch
