Veterans Hiring Act
Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for Random—Burin—St. George’s for her remarks. One of the highlights of my time sailing aboard HMCS St. John’s, was travelling with Lieutenant Governor House and his wife on an outport visit through the member’s riding, including small communities like Francois and some really charming parts of Canada. There are some wonderful people in her riding.
I will ask her the same question I asked her colleague from Guelph. Do veterans, whether traditional war veterans or newer veterans, who after active service return to Stephenville or Marystown or some of the smaller communities in her riding, use a bricks and mortar Veterans Affairs office or do they receive support mainly from veteran service officers at legions in many of those towns?
