Thankfully, the veterans of Canada had the leadership of the Royal Canadian Legion, ANAVETS
and other groups to advocate for the support of veterans to the government.
Lorne McCartney, of the ANAVETS
, reminds me that discounted fares on VIA Rail are still available for Canadian Forces members, veterans and their immediate families in all classes and for all destinations.
Members include a number of professional experts, as well as veterans' advocates Cliff Chadderton, the Legion's Duane Daly, and Ian Inrig, the Dominion Secretary/Treasurer of ANAVETS
