Canada's Veterans are planning on going to Ottawa on June 4th to protest the total breach of trust that this government has shown towards us and the disregard of the sacred oath that has been in place since World War I.
We also plan to enlighten the public on the amount of misinformation that this government is putting out without documented proof.
By doing so we will be showing this government that we are no longer going to just stand by and take the continued mistreatment of our rights.
You don't have to be a Vet, or have anything to do with the military, to show your support. Actually, the more civilians the better.
This will not be just a one-day event, as we plan on staying as long as it takes.
