MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
“I’m extremely concerned about the situation for veterans and others who have lost their status. Particularly, I’m concerned about the health of veteran Richard Collier who is currently on day 26 of his hunger strike at his home in Pictou Landing, NS. This represents a serious situation both for Richard and other veterans who may be considering similar action in support of their cause.
