Opening Reverses Conservative Policy
THUNDER BAY – The Veterans Affairs office in Thunder Bay will re-open in January 2017. Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr made the announcement this morning in Thunder Bay at the Syndicate Avenue office.
Veterans Affairs Minister and Deputy Minister of Defense Kent Hehr announced that the Veterans Affairs Office on Syndicate Avenue in Thunder Bay will re-open in January 2017. The move will include a ratio of 25-1 veterans to staff at the office.
The move reverses the decision to shutter the Veterans Affairs offices that dealt directly with veterans in communities across Canada.
The decision, Minister Hehr says is to honour the service of the veterans who have served Canada.
