Government of Canada and VIA Rail Honour C. F. with Reduced Year-Round Fares

Today, the Honourable Rob Merrifield, Canada’s Minister of State (Transport) and Marc Laliberté, VIA Rail’s President and CEO, announced an unprecedented offer for military personnel, veterans and their families of a 25 per cent discount off the best available fare, all year round. They were joined at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa by the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence and the Honourable Jean-Pierre Blackburn, Minister of Veterans Affairs.



The Calgary Branch of the RMC Club will host its annual Christmas reception on 17 December 2010 at Mewata Armoury, starting at 1700 in the Officers’ Mess. Cadets are encouraged to wear uniforms, but don’t have to (unless the order is given at the college). Cadets and their families are invited as guests of the branch, all ex-cadets are asked to bring $10 which will be donated to the Veterans’ Food Bank in Calgary.

The bar will be open, and finger food will be served.

Please contact myself (scott.treadwell@macquarie.com) or Tim Toews (timmytoews@gmail.com) with questions or to confirm attendance.

The Branch president will buy a suitable libation for any cadet that travels home and attends the reception on the same day. If the cadet has written an exam on the day of the reception and attends, we will let them drink it.
