Ste. Anne De Bellevue Hospital - Transfer to Quebec - April 1
As a widow of Decorated Allied World War II Veteran, Mr. Dennis George Vialls, whose last wish was to die with dignity at Ste. Anne's Hospital for Veterans - denied a derogation by three Conservative Ministers of Veterans Affairs for over five years prior to Mr. Vialls’ death - leaving more than 100 beds empty all those years, our family is still of the opinion that Canada needs to do a lot more for all our veterans. They are old and at a most vulnerable age.
A truly sad day for all veterans that an institution for over 100 years is now in the hands of Quebec while the Honorable Gaétan Barrette keeps closing beds in our hospitals including the MUHC.
Thanks to all our veterans who served and risked their lives for us.
Canada you can do better for our veterans.
Sharyn Cadot, widow of Decorated Allied World War II Veteran Mr. Dennis George Vialls
