Health Minister's Chief of Staff acknowledges letter from CHRC Chief Commissioner.; 1988.
Russ Wunker was Jake Epp's Chief of Staff. We had to get the CHRC Chief Commissioner on his case to remedy very basic rights violations! Interesting bio, from The Official Newsletter of the General John A. Logan Camp #4 Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil Warm who "Oppose every tendency or movement that would weaken loyalty to, or make for the destruction or impairment of, our constitutional Union......." This month’s speaker will be our own Brother Russ Wunker who was born in Toronto, Ontario on February 28, 1947. As you all can observe he has been an energetic and busy individual who has accomplished great things, not the least of which is his 30 plus years as a member of the Sons of Union Veterans. We are indeed honored to hear from Russ but all the more important he is one of us.
