Col. Neil Russel (ret) did his duty and served Canada for 30 years and now it's time for Canada to do its duty. The wheelchair-bound veteran can’t be cared for at home, but eligibility rules put in place by Veterans Affairs Canada 30 years ago mean he doesn’t qualify for a bed in the federal Residential Care Program for veterans. Beds are available right now for him but the VA will not fund one. We believe that this is wrong for so many reasons and not acceptable. Step up Canada and do what you say you do, take care of this and other vets. We, other Canadian vets and civilian citizens believe this is the moral thing to do.
