Mark Campbell, 49, served with the 3rd Battalion of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry in Edmonton when he was hit by a command-detonated IED on June 2, 2008.The blast took both his legs. Enemy then used the dust, confusion and screaming to launch a three-way ambush — pummelling the Canadians with rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gun fire.
Mark is now one of seven plaintiffs attempting to sue the federal government for drastic alterations to the Canadian Forces compensation regime, which applies to the newer generation of armed forces members injured in the line of service after 2006.
