Remembrance Day 2015




vBulletin counter


Remembrance Day has an extra meaning for me as my father died the day before on the 10th in 1972, in many ways, a long time ago. Yet even then there were so many veterans living with the results and effects of having fought in a war for their country. There has been much in the news here in Canada, and other countries, about the cuts to programmes for those who fought for us to have a better way of life. My hope for those here in Canada, is that with the new government, they will reverse those cuts of the last few years, that those men and women may live without having to fight for what should be theirs, and live with the dignity they deserve.

Cuts to services for those who have served our countries is so very wrong. It's like the jobs they did, didn't matter. It makes me so sad!

Totally agree, but our new government has promised to rectify those cuts, that is at least a start.

It's bad that cuts are being made to programs for veterans. I guess governments have only got "X" amount of money to go around :(

Our previous government was all about balancing the books so it was cuts everywhere. It didn't seem to matter that a lot of the cuts hurt those who are most in need.

So far this new government are keeping to the promises they made, time will tell how it works out.

*hugs*
