We have a chance to stop C-55! Please see below what CPVA and how they are again betraying veterans' interests by lobbying surreptitiously on matters which affect all of us. We can do the same. Write and call these senators and let them know you oppose C-55 and that CPVA does NOT represent the interests of the vast majority of CF veterans. CPVA has reportedly less than 500 members and yet sits at the table making decisions which will affect hundreds of thousands of veterans.
Get on the news if you can!! See my Hill Times article from Monday to get ammunition!!
There is Hope!
