On the Opinions page of today’s Peace Arch News, It is truly sad to read the petulance of a few veterans on the issue of pay parking.

This is exactly the reason governments are reluctant to give a special benefit. If you do it once, it seems people get a sense of entitlement.

Instead of being thankful that they got over a year of complimentary car storage, some veterans are indignant that the Year of the Veteran has passed and the rules will soon revert to normal.

Squabbling over fees for car storage diminishes the sanctity of the valiant efforts made in defence of democracy and human rights.

It is dishonorable of veterans to claim that the risks they took on our behalf entitles them to park their car for free.
