“We look forward to further developing the connection between Minister Bennett and Ministry of Veterans’ Affairs (VA), and the current and former service community.
“Minister Foss and the team at VA have made a significant difference in the lives of many, and we look forward to continuing this work to ensure all those who have served and sacrificed get the support they need,” BJ says.
