Canadians should “inundate” minister
Ottawa – Today in the House of Commons Betty Hinton, MP for Kamloops Thompson and Highland Valleys, called on Canadians to “turn up the heat and continue to inundate this waffling government with your letters and calls”.
“For 10 years Mr. Trotter has appealed at all levels of government bureaucracy to get a prisoner of war pension supplement to which he is entitled.”
Hinton went on to say, “if full comprehension of the situation has evaded the Minister, the letters and calls from across the country have no doubt helped to clarify Canadian views on the value we place on our veterans.”
Mrs. Hinton was speaking on behalf of her constituent, Rt. LCol Al Trotter, a WWII veteran awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross by King George VI, and one of the most highly decorated veterans in Canada today.
“Please Canada. Let the Liberals know without a shadow of a doubt that we will not stand by and allow a great war hero to be denied justice,” said Hinton.
