Calgary public forum for injured and/or disabled veterans

Canadians for Accountability is helping to publicize an event being held in Calgary at Mount Royal University, organized and hosted by the Foundation for Democratic Advancement. The Forum is about what is happening to injured and/or disabled veterans and why, and giving veterans an opportunity to make their voices heard by the Canadian public. Support veterans by listening to them and working with them to help improve the quality of their lives.

517,854 (or 87.14 percent) of Canadian Forces veterans receive no service or benefits from Veterans Affairs Canada. Potentially thousands of these veterans are injured and/or disabled.

The Forum is an opportunity to learn about issues that affect us and express our views openly.

In addition to other forum activities, Mr. Sean Bruyea, former Canadian Forces captain and veterans advocate, and other veterans will make presentations, share their stories and answer questions. Sean is also a Vice-president on the Board of Canadians for Accountability
