Ordinary Canadians certainly did themselves proud this Remembrance Day by showing their heartfelt appreciation for our men and women in uniform.
Prime Minister Harper was compelled to be at the National War Memorial in Ottawa because his political strategists want us to forget his government has been nickel-and-diming veterans for years.
Harper’s spin doctors would also like us to ignore the fact that more Canadian military and ex-military personnel have committed suicide on his watch than died in the Afghanistan War. Dead veterans deserve our respect; living veterans deserve our respect and assistance.
Do not be misled by the Conservatives cleverly crafted propaganda and their crass campaign goodies. Mister Harper’s government should be judged on its record.
