YEAR OF THE VETERAN
2005 is the year of the veteran.
Nice to see the Park honouring our Vets with free parking. However, Why wouldn't they have done this right from the beginning of the season?
You would think The sacrifice our Veterans made would be greater than the all mighty dollar.
Veterans won't have to battle traffic in Parks
NIAGARA FALLS - First it was the city, now the Niagara Parks Commission is offering free parking to Canada's war veterans. For the rest of 2005 - which has been designated the Year of the Veteran - cars with the special Ontario licence plates that show a poppy and the word 'veteran' underneath can park for free on Parks property. Other provincial plates honouring war veterans will get free parking, too. "It is the right thing to do," said Parks chairman Jim Williams.
