e-687 (Veterans' affairs)

E-petition
Initiated by Kristin Courtney from Oakville, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • It seems it is not customary to spell Veteran with a capital V when referring to Veterans, who went through their military service, have made and continue to make tremendous sacrifices for our country; we believe this title should be distinguished by always being spelled with a capital "V", Veteran.
We, the undersigned, citizens or residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to spell Veteran with a capital V in official government communications when referring to those who went through their military service, have made and continue to make tremendous sacrifices for our country, in order to distinguish them from individuals with much experience in a particular field.
