My Grandfather George Rae was a Gordon Highlander and served in France in WW 1.
He passed away peacefully many years ago, in Sunnybrook Hospital. That old Canadian Military hospital had a wonderful reputation, and excellent record of care for Veterans.
I visited my Grand dad many times in that hospital and never heard a complaint. It is sad to say that now as a private/ provincial long term care centre there has been a multitude of complaints.
Everything from abuse to hygiene concerns. The federal ministry for Veterans affairs should be operating these facilities, not people that do not care about our Veterans nor their welfare.
I hope that this new study provides answers. In order that our Veterans may enjoy the twilight of their lives. Both in comfort, and respect as well as first class services medical and otherwise.
As for the peoples, of Syria and Mali. Something must be done and the sooner the better. The Algeria rescue attempts were are a farce, many good expatriate workers lost their lives due to these bungled attempts at a rescue.
The Syrian Civil war has gone on far too long and now it looks like Mali will become the latest war.
Mali has many displaced persons and a vast majority of them are amputees.
So as Canada assists logistically for the moment. I feel sure we will soon be in Combat or trainers in this African war,
Please support your Troops and their families.
