Reinstate Michael Blais to the VAC Policy Advisory Group he was EJECTED from!

This petition had 277 supporters

Recently, Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) unceromoniously ejected a vocal advocate of disabled Canadian veterans from a Policy Advisory group. Michael Blais has dedicated his life to making the lives of these valiant souls better. He has been the heart of the Canadian Veterans Advocacy (CVA). This organization has about 5,300 members.

In an effort to seek consultation with his' constituents, he posted information about the Policy Advisory groups work & to update the veteran's he represents with the fruits of his' advocacy.

Is this a crime?

Freedom of expression is key to democracy!

The Trudeau government ran on a platform of Transparency. The Prime Minister stated that the outgoing Conservative government was too harsh on Freedom of information, especially with scientists.

Now a vocal veteran critic is being silenced & without procedural fairness! In other words he was not warned nor given a second chance or WARNING, akin to the Minister of National Defence not being asked to resign or getting fired for saying he was the "architect" for the 2006 Operation Medusa.

Sign this petition to demand that VAC have Mike reinstated, restoring him to the position he enjoyed before sudden expulsion.

After all, he was given no justice & a chance for his' side to be heard BEFORE a decision was made.

How is that Equitable?

Many veterans also question the lack of Transparency present in these Policy Advisory groups. Some also question the entire process as VAC has a "delay & deny" reputation.

Food for thought when considering if you should sign this petition. Mike would want more openness & transparency, even if he was never reinstated.
