PRESIDENT'S WORD

Having served in the Canadian Armed Forces for more than forty-one (41) years, and having been a member of The Royal Canadian Legion for the past thirteen (13) years, I know how important it is to belong to an organization where you feel welcome and among comrades. The spirit of comradeship is what will keep Veterans and their families in their branch and encourage them to participate in the activities.

But The Royal Canadian Legion is much more than a meeting place; it is also where Veterans and their dependants can receive help to better their quality of life, whether with access to medical care and paratransit; knowing and discovering local help resources; and recognize and protect their rights, either with Veterans Affairs Canada or the different levels of government. We must not forget that our mission is:

  • To serve Veterans, including serving members of the military, members of the RCMP and their families;
  • To promote Remembrance; and
  • To serve our community and our country.

During my term, I plan to visit as many branches as I can, and to interact with our members. This will enable me to have a better understanding of the health of our organization and to know where to channel my efforts. Don't hesitate to invite me to your activities by using the attached form.

I also invite you to send me your accomplishments so I can share them with our members to inspire them. There is a lot of good in our organization, and the credit is all yours.


Until next time, in comradeship

Kenneth R. Ouellet
President

Fraud sites

Two examples below of sites that claim to support the Legion that don’t. They create Facebook pages and then promoted ads on Facebook that link to their websites where they sell Legion/Poppy related products.
We’ve been unsuccessful in getting them shut down by Facebook and from a legal perspective, as overseas sites, it is virtual impossible to stop. The Legal costs would be enormous and they’d just pop up somewhere else.
Anything we can do to get the media to help us spread the word this holiday season would be great as you’d expect they’ll increase their promotion accordingly and scam more unsuspecting supporters of Veterans and the Legion.

New website that honours nine Canadian Servicemen.

December 30, 2018 - The 100th Anniversary of the WWI Armistice on November 11, 2018, saw the launch of a website containing three World War Timelines, one for each of three villages in Oxfordshire, England, that tell in sequential order the strategic story of the two World Wars and the highly individual stories of a total of eighty-eight men and women who were killed in those wars.

A distinctive feature of the work is that it treats as equal the sixty-four local people who went away from the three villages and were killed on land or in the sea or air - and twenty-four men from far away who came and were killed in air crashes on or over the three villages in WWII, six of whom were Canadians.

The three WWI soldiers emigrated from the same area in England, to Canada just before WWI. They all enlisted in Ontario (Toronto, Hamilton and Niagara) and served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and fought and were killed alongside their former village friends in Belgium and France.

The six WWII Canadian Airmen were born in :

  • Ontario (Toronto & Fort William),
  • Manitoba (Norwood),
  • Nova Scotia (Torbrook Mines),
  • Saskatchewan (Moose Jaw),
  • Quebec (Lachute).
