Veterans Prevented From Entering Legion Hall While Harper Meets With Small Handful of 'Friendly' Vets .. Shame !!

A group of Canadian military veterans said they were denied access to a Stephen Harper event held at a legion in New Brunswick Monday morning.

Fabian Henry of the organization Marijuana for Trauma said that he and six other veterans heard Sunday night that Conservative leader Harper and Veterans Affairs Minister Erin O'Toole were coming to the No. 4 Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion in Fredericton.

His organization has four branches across the country. It is run by veterans aiming to help vets with post-traumatic stress disorder ease their pain with marijuana treatment.

Henry rounded up some other veterans, most of whom served in Afghanistan, and headed to the event to "shake a hand or do something to talk about veterans affairs issues."

But when they arrived, some "guys in suits" said that was out of the question.

"We weren't even allowed in the building," Henry said. "We were standing outside thinking we were going to get in to at least listen to what was happening or voice any concerns. That didn't happen."

Instead the group went around the back of the building and watched Harper get off the bus, go inside for 15 minutes, then get back on the bus and leave without acknowledging their presence.
The Conservative party said in an email that Harper was talking to veterans inside of the building
