SYDNEY, NS – After a formidable fight on Parliament Hill and with Minster Julian Fantino himself, veteran Ron Clarke will join veterans and community members on Friday to continue the battle at home.
At 12noon, just hours before the office officially closes, a Black Ribbon Ceremony will take place at the Veterans Affairs Office at 308 George Street in Sydney.
Veterans, their families, those who have been occupying the office, front line workers, and the community will make a final call to Minister Julian Fantino and Prime Minister Stephen Harper to reverse their decision and to keep the promise they made to veterans and their loved ones when they enlisted.
