Brian Masse MP Windsor West is holding a rally in an effort to prevent the closure of the Windsor Veterans Affairs Office Friday Afternoon.
The government is indicating that by February 2014 the Veterans Affairs offices in Corner Brook, Charlottetown, Sydney, Thunder Bay, Brandon, Saskatoon, Kelowna and Windsor will be closing their doors to veterans.
Masse says that these offices provide valuable support and services to traditional and younger veterans – including those with serious physical and mental health issues, who depend on for face-to-face frontline help. For those in Windsor they will be forced to travel over two hours away in order to receive service in London.
The rally will take place at the Cenotaph at City Hall Square at 2pm.
