UPDATE 11 NOVEMBER
It’s been a wild ride for the past week. We are now closing in on 50,000 names and plenty of media. Keep sharing!
Something fantastic has happened! Over the summer, we started a petition to defend the social contract with veterans. This week, Change.Org came on board as supporter, to help us promote the petition. On Tuesday, we had about 1500 signatures, collected since the summer. Thanks to Change.org sending out an action notice, our petition now has almost 32,000 names (at time of writing). YOU can help! You can share the petition link: http://www.change.org/ourduty You can email out the action alert to your friends. You can encourage everyone you know to sign on.

We must defend the social contract with our veterans; meeting our obligations to them. Government as argued that we don’t owe them anything – tell Government that they are wrong.
Rick Mercer did a fine job in his rant this week, summing up how we are treating our vets.
