Save The Canadian Legions

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the Royal Canadian Legion Halls (especially rural branches) have lost most of their revenue streams (weddings. stag and does, dances etc) forcing 124 branches to possibly close permanently. These facilities are the backbone of many Canadian communities, with the mission to serve Veterans, including serving military and RCMP members and their families, to promote Remembrance, and to serve our communities and our country.

We don't understand how our government is allowing this to happen. There seems to be lots of funding available, some recent examples are...100 million dollars pledged to a plant-based food company to develop new plant-based foods, and let's not forget the 733 million dollars budgeted for a visitors centre on Parliament Hill. 

All of these have value, but our communities and our veterans should be a priority. Please sign this petition, and let our government know this is not acceptable.

Thank you for reading, The Biggs & Barr Show.
