On October 3rd, 2013 residents of Sydney attended a town hall meeting at Branch 12 of the Royal Canadian Legion that was organized by the Public Service Alliance of Canada. The Federal Government plans to close the Sydney, NS, Veterans Affairs office which will have a widespread negative effect on over 4200 veterans who rely on their services.
We are very pleased to have special guest speaker Stéphane Grenier who is a former member of the Canadian Military. Having served over 29 years, he faced his own undiagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) upon his return from Rwanda. He will account his personal journey to recovery and how he dealt with mental health issues.
