I would like to thank all those who have supported me, and other Sikh Veterans in connection with the events which occurred at the Newton Legion, Surrey, B.C Canada, on last Remembrance Day. Without your support:-
I would especially like to thank Penny Priddy MLA who stood with us throughout this ordeal. I would also like to thank other Politicians, especially the Media and hundreds of thousands of Canadians who supported us. Words cannot express my gratitude to all of those Canadians who have worked with me tirelessly to ensure that the discriminatory rules framed and practised by some of the Royal Canadian Legion Branches across Canada, were changed by the Dominion Command, the highest Legion Authority, in Canada. Through this experience, I have learnt that the vast majority of Canadians are wonderful and tolerant people.
