Canadian Forces Parliamentary Program

In July of 2009, I was honoured to spend time on board the HMCS Ville du Quebec ( and received hands-on experience living life as a member of Canadian Forces. What a great opportunity to gain valuable insight into the challenges facing our troops!

We sailed from St. John's, Newfoundland and took part in a variety of exciting naval exercises before docking at Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I cannot way enough about the professional calibre of our Navy. Their dedication, their knowledge, and pride in their country is commendable.

I encourage you to read my speech in the Senate about our Navy.
