Setting the record straight

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Dear Editor,

This letter is written in regards to an article posted by The Reporter newspaper on Friday, February 13, 2015 at 8:24 am, with the caption “CitCo and Canadian Legion honor veterans.”

The Belize City Council was not in collaboration with the Royal Canadian Legion. It was I, the former National Executive Secretary/present Office Manager of the Belize Ex-Services League who was in constant collaboration with the Royal Canadian Legion and its representative since October of 2014 pertaining to the cruise ship visit.

Accompanied by the former President of the Belize Ex-Services League we met with Mayor Darrell Bradley on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 and informed him of the visit of the President of the Royal Canadian Legion and other Legion members.

The Mayor was presented with an itinerary of the visit and after a brief discussion he automatically came on board and, without hesitation, agreed to assist us to make the event at the Memorial Park successful, for which we are most grateful.

Therefore, the caption should have read: “Royal Canadian Legion, Belize Ex-Services League and CitCo honor World War veterans”.

On behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Belize Ex-Services League I’d like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the Belize City Mayor and his staff who assisted us at a time of need.



Valerie Richardson, J.P.
National Office Manager
Belize Ex-Services League
