Shifty Harper has done it again. Yeah! He begins the campaign day with an event at a Legion hall in New Brunswick and then shuts out military veterans who thought they'd like to attend. It was the No. 4 Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion in Fredericton, NB to be precise.
Why? Because they're military veterans who aren't entirely satisfied at how they've been treated. They got wind that Harper and Veterans Affairs minister
[Fabian] Henry rounded up some other veterans, most of whom served in Afghanistan, and headed to the event to "shake a hand or do something to talk about veterans affairs issues."
But when they arrived, some "guys in suits" said that was out of the question.
"We weren't even allowed in the building," Henry said. "We were standing outside thinking we were going to get in to at least listen to what was happening or voice any concerns. That didn't happen."
Instead the group went around the back of the building and watched Harper get off the bus, go inside for 15 minutes, then get back on the bus and leave without acknowledging their presence.
The Conservative party said in an email that Harper was talking to veterans inside of the building.
Classy, Steve. You're all class.
