UPDATED - Canadian veteran not welcome at defence committe?

New Democrat MP Sylvain Chicoine wants the speaker to look into a curious incident that apparently went down earlier this week, in which Canadian Forces veteran -- and outspoken critic of the government -- Sylvain Chartrand was allegedly prevented from attending a public meeting of the defence committee, which is currently studying "the care of ill and injured Canadian Forces members". 

UPDATE: It starting to sound like this may have been an unfortunate mixup related to Senate security, and not a deliberate attempt by the government to block Chartrand from the meeting. I'll let you know if I hear anything else.
