Statement made on 03 March 2009 by Senator Roméo Dallaire

Hon. Roméo Antonius Dallaire:

Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate, the Minister of National Defence and the Minister of Canadian Heritage.

Chapter 3 of the budget, under the heading Investments in Federal Infrastructure Projects, indicates that Budget 2009:

. . . will set aside funds to build and renew federal public infrastructure . . .

And specifically it says:

. . . Committing $2 million to develop a plan for the future of the historic Manège Militaire in Québec City, destroyed by fire in 2008.

The Régiment des voltigeurs de Québec is based at the Manège militaire de Québec, the Quebec City Armoury. The regiment has existed since 1885 and participated in the Northwest Rebellion and the First and Second World Wars, to name a few. It has sent and continues to send soldiers to Afghanistan.

Why does the government want to establish a plan for the future for the Quebec City Armoury, even though the Voltigeurs regiment still exists and continues to serve within the Canadian Forces, despite the fact that the Quebec City Armoury was destroyed by fire?
