An Open Letter to U.S. Veterans from a Canadian Veteran



by Cpl. Kenneth H. Young CD (ret)

Dear U.S. Veterans,

On May the 19th. at 2 P.M. sharp in a sports field adjacent to the Saint Croix Legion Branch # 9 in St Stephan N.B. Canada, a Protest Rally will gather directly across the Saint Croix River from Calais Maine U.S.A.
Attending and protesting in this historic rally will be Canadian Legion members from across New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, CFB Gagetown N.B. Veterans and Victims of the 28 year  Gagetown toxic chemical spraying program, the Military Widows On The War Path, and members of the Agent Orange Association of Canada and Agent Orange Alert along with our many supporters.


The reason for this Protest Rally is to forcefully demand from our Prime Minister and our Minister of Veterans Affairs a Judicial Public Inquiry into this Canadian Toxic Atrocity.
CFB Gagetown N.B. is where our Canadian Government sprayed over 3.2 million Liters/Pounds of Agent Orange, Agent Purple and Agent White.
Many Maine National Guards and British Solders trained in Gagetown’s DIOXIN and HCB laden training area for extended periods during the known spraying times every summer. Spraying took place almost every year from 1956 to 1984.
The Maine National Guard, while training at CFB Gagetown N.B. were exposed to toxic chemicals for extended periods every year. It is as a result of our shared exposure to these cancer causing agents that we cordially invite the U.S. Veterans and their supporters to stand with us in St Stephan N.B. to demand the justice that both our Governments have denied us.
For those of you who will be attending this protest rally, the Saint Croix Legion can be found at the corner of Queen St. West and Mark St.. The following link will take you to the St. Stephan N.B. map.
For those of you who cannot attend this historic event but would still like to support us, please send a letter of support demanding a Judicial Public Inquiry to Gary Goode ( [email protected] ) and it will be
printed and hand delivered to Greg Thompson’s, the Minister of Veteran’s Affairs riding office in St Stephan N.B. on the day of our protest.
Thank-you for your continued support of both our Country’s Veterans.

Destroying Chemical Use – Before Chemical Use Destroys Me.

A "Veteran" — whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve  — is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check  made payable to "their Government," for an amount "up to and including" their life.
