STATEMENT ON THE ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION POST 144
Hon. Yonah Martin (Deputy Leader of the Opposition):
Honourable senators, I rise today to tell you about an important Canadian treasure I discovered earlier this year during my first trip to Florida. There is a special Royal Canadian Legion Post 144, Pinellas County, which is housed within the American Legion TurnerBrandon Post 7, in Clearwater, Florida, among the first posts formed in the United States. It is the perfect symbol of the longstanding bond between our two countries whose men and women have stood shoulder to shoulder in war and peace.
