Marginalizing the Head of National Council of Veterans Associations

CBC is running a story about the Canadian War Museum.
One of the paintings portrays Master Cpl. Clayton Matchee – of the Canadian Airborne Regiment – torturing a teenager, Shidane Arone, inside a Canadian compound in Somalia in 19.
The museum said it's been getting a lot of support from veterans, despite Chadderton's criticism and doesn't intend to remove the controversial paintings.
The article proceeds with commentary that could isolate and marginalize Chadderdon. In the USSR, he could have been declared mentally ill and hospitalized.

I welcome proof of veteran's support for the paintings in question. At this moment, I don't believe it.
