Canadian war vet denied access to N.S. veterans hospital

A Canadian war veteran is being denied access to a Halifax veterans hospital even though there are empty beds in the facility — all because he wasn’t Canadian at the time of his wartime service.

Sitting recently in his home in Hubbards, N.S., 91-year-old Gordon Smith showed off the medals on his tunic. There’s one for good conduct in the Royal Canadian Air Force and one representing his time in the fire service.
