Veterans Affairs’ Twitter account is as relevant as Veterans Affairs Minister
You might have heard that Veterans Affairs spent $100,000 to promote tweets last year. What you might not know is how relevant Veterans Affairs tweets are. Retweets of other departments or ministers, asking people to take selfies, asking for a retweet, or bad translations, it’s all in there. See for yourself.
Like NDP MP and Veterans Critic Peter Stoffer said, “you don’t need to tweet, you just need to hug a veteran and thank them for their service and thank their families and thank the current military. Buy them a drink, for God’s sake.”
Canadians deserve better. And veterans deserve hugs and better support, not tweets and budget cuts.
