General John de Chastelain - Nichola Goddard

GeneralJohndeChastelain3.jpgIt's not every day a distinguished Canadian General pops into our station. But today General John de Chastelain did just that. He's on the Island to take part in the fourth annual fundraising dinner for The Nichola Goddard Foundation. The sold-out event tomorrow night raises money in memory of Goddard - the first Canadian female soldier killed in combat. General de Chastelain is now a retired Canadian soldier and diplomat who was twice appointed as Canada's Chief of the Defence Staff. From 1995 and Up until recently he was involved in the Northern Ireland peace process.
