Our Veterans deserve to have the office remain open to them. Convenient access is what they need and deserve! Closing of the Sydney (Cape Breton) District office makes no sense what so ever. Our Veterans deserve to have face to face, one on one when they want, being able to come in to the office is not a luxury but a necessity for our Veterans. Calling the 1-866 number is not working, having to press this number then that number is most confusing for the best of us, let-a-lone our Veterans, be they conventional or new, they are Veterans just the same.
