Can someone please tell me how this helps the legion when a Command service officer breaches his office ? MIKE BURGESS AND DAVID OTT are way out of line. Both from Calgary, I have always spoken very well of the service side of the legion Gerry Finlay in particular. This is a downright disgusting example of what’s wrong with the Legion and how out-of-controli it truly is June 6 of 2016 something very terrible happened to me at one small branch that was never appropriately dealt with. The slander and attacks have continued since then and I continue to fight back. Can you not see that you lost nearly 17,000 members this year alone can you not see I am not the only veteran who has been miss treated by the Legion. Can you not see social media is drastically affecting the declining membership because our leaders will not take charge and stomp out the fire. My personal private medical information has now been shared online by a command service officer a paid position. As well as his friend who apparently also holds the title of service officer in Calgary. I don’t understand why you think problems will go away if you just ignore them or bury your head in the sand. When Heinous crimes are committed against any member let alone an ordinary member you must take action to see those things don’t happen in future. It has gotten so bad in the last year and a half we now have veterans attacking veterans online. Where the hell is the caring and understanding ? If you can’t treat people with dignity and respect then you need to get out. if you are unable to create a warm welcoming environment then you need to get out. If you breach confidentiality of your members then you need to get out. If you cannot address serious crimes and grievances without paying $100 fee then you need to get out. If you are unable to contact members who are leaving by the thousands to find out why then you need to get out. I have attached a few items for you to look at and think about. In closing I did not create the Legion troubles you are quite capable of doing that to yourself I am only one of thousands who are disgusted by the chain of events.
Where do we go from here??? Perhaps the question should be where does the legion go from here????
God Bless and Merry Christmas
