The All New Legion Night Clubs—Strippers coming soon?

One has to wonder where the direction of a majority of legion branches are headed? Night clubs, hot spots, Topless dancers???? Seem they are prepared to do anything to keep their doors open. My question is this, how is this helping veterans? something the legion constantly claims they are doing. No membership required anyone one can enter anyone can join. The legion is clearly no longer a veteran organization, it no longer has a majority of veteran members. This once respected Royal Canadian Legion is no more. Instead we have pretend veterans wearing pretend medals and marching in pretend veteran parades. It is time the Government removed the Legions right to control the Poppy Campaign and the funds raised. In my personal opinion the legion is run by a group of self appointed medal clad pretend hero’s. I have for several years advocated for a change to section 419 of the criminal code. Blood relatives should be permitted to wear late loved ones medals. Every time I attempt to send a resolution to the AGM Dominion Command it is thrown back in my face by some upstart associate. I understand not everyone agrees, but it really does not affect those who oppose it. If you don’t want to wear your grandfather/fathers medals on remembrance day you don’t have too. However that does not give anyone the right to deny others who may wish to do so. To the best of my knowledge Canada is the only country that opposes this. Everywhere else wearing loved ones medals by blood relatives is not only permitted, its encouraged. Canada is also the only country, again to the best of my knowledge, that allows legion members to promote and wear their own produced pretend medals. I continually send emails to Dominion and Provincial Command, I never get a response? Indeed some of my emails are strongly worded, I would at least expect an occasional angry retort. I have to suppose my messages are hitting home and causing some degree of embarrassment. In closing I should add a qualifier! (everywhere else?)  I’m not sure of the medal policies or how they apply in North Korea??

Below is my last email sent to PEI Provincial Command, no response!!!!

The Royal Canadian legions many decorated hero’s
They have fought and struggled at many committee meetings and sweated over BBQs. Organized shuffle board and dart competitions under the most trying and extreme conditions. Indeed these are the much decorated hero’s of today’s legions. Not those complaining veterans with actual military service who wear real authorized medals who will not help or join!!!

God Bless and keep reading.
