Shortly after Alex’ accident, Alex received a very lovely personal letter from the Veterans Affair’s Minister Kent Hehr. It was quite nice and like I said not a template by no means. Well I guess quite a few people have spoken to the minister about Alex and he felt the need to come see him and give him a few words of encouragement as he himself suffered a spinal injury in his early college years back in 1991.
On Monday morning, the minister came by for a while and had some great things to say. Alex even had some questions it was a great visit. Thank you so much to the minister and his staff for making this happen. It really touched Alex that someone so busy and with so much else going on would take the time for him and especially knowing he is the veterans affairs minister, that held weight with Alex.
We were impressed at what a happy and confident person Mr. Hehr is, not a bad guy at all for a Liberal :). He even shared his contact info with Alex in case he ever wanted to chat.
Thanks Minister Heir it was very kind of you to take the time.
