Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

On Au­gust 26, CFB Ba­got­ville hos­ted the De­fence Mi­nis­ter, S. Har­jit Sa­j­jan, ac­com­pa­nied by Par­lia­men­ta­ry Se­cre­ta­ry for De­fence, John McKay and the MP for Chi­cou­ti­mi- Le Fjord, De­nis Le­mieux.

It was the first vi­sit to Ba­got­ville for Mr. Sa­j­jan since his ap­point­ment as Mi­nis­ter of De­fence.

Du­ring a pri­vate mee­ting held at the head­quar­ters of the Base, the mi­nis­ter at­ten­ded pre­sen­ta­tions by the two Ba­got­ville Wing com­man­ders, Co­lo­nels Mol­stad and Bou­cher, as well as few key unit com­man­ders, who took the op­por­tu­ni­ty to share with elec­ted of­fi­cials.

Af­ter that mee­ting, the mi­nis­ter al­so qui­ck­ly vi­si­ted the base in­cli­ding the res­tric­ted area to be­come more fa­mi­liar with the NORAD mis­sion sus­tai­ned by CFB Ba­got­ville. Sub­se­quent­ly, the Mi­nis­ter of De­fense met with Ba­got­ville’s staff at a Town­hall in Han­gar 7.

Mi­nis­ter Sa­j­jan conclu­ded his vi­sit by an­noun­cing an in­vest­ment of $ 1.2 mil­lion in a green in­fra­struc­ture and clean tech­no­lo­gy pro­ject to im­prove the per­for­mance and ener­gy­sa­ving ef­fi­cien­cy of CFB Ba­got­ville fa­ci­li­ties.

Two buil­dings have al­rea­dy been iden­ti­fy for this in­vest­ment, the Sports cen­ter and Han­gar 6.
