The recent closure of eight Veterans Affairs offices by the Harper government dishonours all who served and continue to serve. Canada's veterans have a long and proud history and should be recognized for their service and the sacrifices they have made.
Canada's veterans deserve our recognition for their contributions to Canada and the sacrifices made.
That is why it is a sad reflection on the politics of Stephen Harper when, at the very time he has decreased important services to veterans, he has increased his own office's budget by seven per cent.
As Canadians we can never truly know or fully understand the immense contributions and sacrifices made by veterans.
To provide anything less than adequate care for those, who have given so much and asked for so little in return, is not only wrong, it's disgraceful.
