My God! the ongoing Legion controversy seems to be never ending???
Perhaps our National President can explain why and when he decided the Royal Canadian Legion should incorporate. To the best of my knowledge the general membership were never informed and we certainly never had a vote on this huge change in our status. However, the overbearing question is WHY? Does Dominion Command have something to hide and do they need some form of protection? I’m no expert on the purpose of or the reason why we should incorporate. I believe it is done to protect a business, give them the right to privacy and such. Indeed there has been much talk recently of the privacy of salaried members at Dominion Command?
Here is a definition
Incorporation creates a protective bubble around a company’s owners, shareholders and directors. Incorporated businesses can take the risks that make growth possible without exposing the shareholders, owners and directors to personal financial liability outside of their original investments in the company.
This definition when applied to the Legion would mean replacing “Company Owners, Shareholders, and Directors , with Dominion Command Officers. In other words Dominion Command members would be protected in the event of an audit??? At least, it is the only reason I can come up with for this secret, sudden and mysterious change in our status.
It seems its not about the Legion “Preparing for the 21st Century” its about Tom Eagles and his deputies preparing for the possible fate that might be awaiting them if we have a successful audit and or an RCMP investigation..Especially so if monies from the Poppy fund has been misappropriated?
We do not have all the facts yet and I could be very wrong in my assumptions, and I truly hope I’m. However if I’m not wrong then something is seriously amiss. Alas, we have troubled times ahead for the Royal Canadian Legion, lets pray and hope the poppy,the legion veterans and our branches survive the turmoil.
God Bless and keep reading
