Healing nature retreat for veterans in Quebec

The Wounded Warrior Project organizes a handful of different physical activities for veterans returning from combat zone. The group will bring together 55 Canadian veterans and their family members in Lac-Delage this weekend. The retreat is the first of its kind in Quebec and the fifth in Canada. Dan Fontaine and Gervais Jeffrey are two of the organizers of this event and joined us in studio.

More than 50 veterans and their families came together this weekend for a retreat at Lac Delage. Our reporter Catou MacKinnon was there, and spoke with Retired Brigadier-General Christian Barabé, former base commander at Valcartier, and now regional director of Wounded Warriors. Listen here.
