Canadians are failing our veterans

Dear Editor:

Nov. 11 is a good time to remind ourselves that Canadians are failing veterans.

Our Liberal and Conservative governments refuse to do the right thing and pay veterans what they are owed. In this region, MPs from the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) have the power to fix this. But that isn’t going to happen unless CPC supporters stand up for veterans.

On Remembrance Day call your MP and tell them to do whatever it takes, including working with the Liberal government, to get veterans what they are owed.

Many Canadians sacrificed their lives, limbs and/or minds while serving this country. So it shouldn’t be too much to ask CPC supporters to take a few minutes to call their MP to remind them of this.
