Government promises for 5 Wing Goose Bay - No longer part of military's plans
Leo Abbass Defence Minister Peter MacKay has called into question the promises made by the federal government for the future of 5-Wing Goose Bay. Prime Minister Stephen Harper had promised to station a new, 650-member rapid reaction army battalion at CFB Goose Bay, plus a new long-range unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) squadron at the base. But the recent response from MacKay tabled in parlament says “there are currently no plans” to establish a 650-member battalion at 5 Wing. The change came as a surprise to Happy Valley Goose Bay Mayor Leo Abbas. He spoke to CBC Reporter Peter Cowan.
