Drop frozen food, give veterans what they deserve

To the editor,

The concern for prepackaged frozen food at the Veterans Wing continues to be a major concern for a great many of our citizens. I should not have to remind Mr. Lee and Mr. Hill and the PCHA that these veterans survived on “hard rations” for years while suffering unimaginable horrors in defence of this country and our way of life. Now in their declining years they should not have to endure prepackaged frozen food.

Is this the way we repay them for the huge sacrifices they have made for us? I understand that by depriving these veterans of fresh food the PCHA realizes a saving of $70,000, a pittance when compared to the total budget. Every time that I sit down to a meal I feel a sense of shame when I think about what the heroes in the Veterans Wing are being served, three times a day, 365 days a year.

Mr. Lee and Mr. Hill and the PCHA: “Throw out the frozen food” and begin to treat these genuine heroes with the caring and respect that they so very richly deserve. This injustice is not going away until you do the right thing.

    Surely they can find the 70K elsewhere - maybe if all the administrators took a pay cut, we could afford to feed our Veterans decent food! They sacrificed for us, why can't the administrators sacrifice for our Vets? Fat chance!

    When you solve some of the problems in your own town, perhaps you'll have some credibility for matters outside your boundaries. ie: Foord Street, contaminated water, policing.
