CANADIAN SERVICE MEDAL  Carol-Hughes-3-1140x641

Veterans are calling for a return of the Canadian Service Medal according to Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing MP, Carol Hughes.

On Wednesday, Hughes delivered a petition to Parliament from constituents, which notes that Veterans Affairs Canada considers any former member of the Canadian Forces that were released with an honourable discharge and successfully underwent basic training to be a veteran.
She says at one time this medal was issued to recognize Canadians who served voluntarily in the Canadian Forces but was stopped abruptly in 1947.

The petitioners are asking a new medal be created to recognize those who have served one year 365 days of uninterrupted duty.
