Diana Abel will never forget the telephone call she received in May 1993 telling her that her son, Corporal Michael David Abel, had been killed while on duty in Somalia.

“They simply said that there had been an accident,” Abel told CTV’s Beverly Thomson. “You just fall apart. It’s very difficult to comprehend that two weeks before he’s coming home, he’s not coming home.”

Abel is this year’s National Memorial Cross Mother . Also known as the Silver Cross, the honour is bestowed every year by the Royal Canadian Legion to the mother of a fallen Canadian soldier.

'I'm a second-class employee.' Contractors suing state over full-time status

Michael McHugh has spent the past 27 years protecting wetlands for the state Department of Environmental Protection. Like most other state employees, he works at least 37.5 hours a week and has his performance regularly reviewed by supervisors.

He can’t join the union, and he’s not protected by antidiscrimination laws. He only recently began receiving sick pay, and he has been ineligible for a range of promotions because his year-to-year contract doesn’t allow him to supervise other employees.

“It’s as if I’m a second-class employee, separate and unequal to other state employees,” said McHugh, 56, of Littleton, who once earned a commissioner’s citation for outstanding work.
