I say letís focus on the positive. At least our military is getting some sort of recognition here. And what an appropriate time as well with Remembrance Day this weekend. Thanks to all those that served and serve now.

I served for almost 15 years, 3 tour in Afghanistan. And Iím pretty happy about this news.


Ontario to offer free fishing licences for veterans and current military members.

The government released a statement saying it's amending fishing regulations to exempt veterans and active service members from having to buy a fishing licence.

They say military members would then be able to fish for free across the province by early 2019.

Natural Resources Minister John Yakabuski says the move†is a way of thanking members of the military for their service.

"We enjoy the rights and freedoms we have today because of the sacrifices of those brave women and men throughout history and those actively serving to defend our rights and freedoms," he said.


Thank you for your service!!

Well deserved, and enjoy fishing!

My point is most Vets will not get this.
Without stating the required proof of service their is no way many veterans will not get this.
Very many Vet's will not have the required documents required.
But we don't know the requirements yet???

Great to hear.The gov. throws money at things that make no sense.Our vets and military should be getting a hell of a lot more for putting their lives on the line.
