Eve Adams, Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary to the Min­is­ter of Vet­er­ans Af­fairs and Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Mis­sis­sauga–Bramp­ton South, con­grat­u­lated John Tram­burg, Vice-Pres­i­dent of Ca­bela’s Canada, on its com­mit­ment to Canada’s Vet­er­ans.

“Our Vet­er­ans have a great deal to of­fer,” said Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary Adams. “I ap­plaud the ef­forts of Ca­bela’s Canada, and other cor­po­rate part­ners such as Queen’s Univer­sity and Mount Al­li­son Univer­sity, for join­ing our Hire a Vet­eran ini­tia­tive. I call on the rest of cor­po­rate Canada to join th­ese lead­ing com­pa­nies in this ini­tia­tive, and to al­low Canada’s Vet­er­ans to put the ex­cel­lent train­ing and skills gained dur­ing their ser­vice to use in the civil­ian work­force. With­out a doubt, th­ese com­pa­nies will ben­e­fit greatly from hir­ing highly skilled Cana­dian Vet­er­ans.”

“Ca­bela’s Canada is proud to part­ner with Vet­er­ans Af­fairs Canada,” said John Tram­burg. “We are com­mit­ted to help­ing Cana­dian Vet­er­ans tran­si­tion to their civil­ian lives. As Ca­bela’s grows, so will our need to hire knowl­edge­able em­ploy­ees to sup­port Ca­bela's cul­ture and our cus­tomers. We’re ex­cited to par­tic­i­pate in this im­por­tant ini­tia­tive for our Cana­dian Vet­er­ans.”

The work of Ca­bela’s Canada builds upon the Vet­er­ans Tran­si­tion Ac­tion Plan, launched last fall by the Hon­or­able Steven Blaney, Min­is­ter of Vet­er­ans Af­fairs. The plan con­sists of new mea­sures for cut­ting red tape for Vet­er­ans, en­hance­ments to ser­vice de­liv­ery, post-mil­i­tary ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties for Vet­er­ans, ground-break­ing re­search on the needs of re­leas­ing Cana­dian Armed Forces per­son­nel, and en­hanced cul­tural aware­ness.

Pat­ter­son said emer­gency crews did a great job of get­ting the in­jured off the boat to med­i­cal aid. Depart­ment of Na­tional De­fence and Vic­to­ria ship­yard per­son­nel “were ex­tremely help­ful, thor­ough and com­pe­tent,” he said. “Help
