Canadian Forces veteran Martin Spriggs is cycling the country, from coast to coast, to raise awareness for suicide prevention and the organization Your Life Counts. He stopped in Moose Jaw on Friday.
A Canadian Forces veteran, Spriggs has battled his own issues since he left the military in the middle of the '90s. In 2013, that understanding hit home even harder when Spriggs lost two of his friends — veterans themselves — to suicide.
