MATHYSSEN ASKS FOR ANSWER ON DUCHESS OF KENT RELOCATION

OTTAWA – Today in the House of Commons, NDP MP Irene Mathyssen (London-Fanshawe) demanded the Conservatives make a swift decision on the proposal to move the Duchess of Kent Legion into Wolseley Barracks.

Ms. Mathyssen:

Mr. Speaker, last month, the Minister of National Defence committed to considering the proposal from the Duchess of Kent Legion, in London, to move into the officers' mess at Wolseley Barracks.

Like so many legions across Canada that care for and reach out to our veterans, the contribution of this legion to the London community and our veterans is immeasurable. However, time is running out.

Has the minister made a decision on the proposal; if not, when can the legion and the community expect an answer?
