Today, at the Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston and the Islands MP Mark Gerretsen announced $5.8 million dollars for military infrastructure repairs for two buildings at RMC and for construction of a new ammunition building on the Base. “I am pleased to announce, on behalf of Minister Sajan and the Government of Canada, a $5.8 million dollar investment at RMC and CFB Kingston”, said MP Gerretsen. The two buildings, Fort LaSalle Dormitory and Yeo Hall, are limestone buildings located on the RMC campus. The Fort LaSalle building houses the officer cadets and Yeo Hall contains the dining hall and the cadet mess. The funds will allow for stonework repairs to both buildings and new windows for Yeo Hall. Colonel Andrew Jayne, CFB Kingston Base Commander, accompanied MP Gerretsen in making the announcement and said the work on the two buildings will begin in May of 2017. He said the new ammunition facility would be located near the base headquarters building. MP Gerretsen said the 5.8 million dollars is part of a wider $200 million dollar investment by the federal government in National Defence infrastructure repair and renewal across Canada.
