As part of a pro bono initiative with the Ontario Trial Lawyers for Veterans, Paul Cahill had the privilege of representing a distinguished World War II heavy bomber pilot in an appeal to the Veterans Review and Appeal Board Canada (the “Board”). The matter was heard on May 19, 2011 at the Sunnybrook Veterans Care Facility (via videoconference with the Board in Charlettetown, PEI).
The veteran had fought for decades for recognition of his Active Force disability.
It its decision released on May 30, 2011, the Board recognized that the veteran’s disability was incurred during and is attributable to his Active Force service.
