At National Defence Committee, I asked Department of National Defence senior officials important questions about CFB Borden and the fight against #COVID19.

My first question was to MGen Trevor Cadieu, Director of Staff, Strategic Joint Staff, about overall numbers at Borden and community outreach. Then I asked MGen Cadieu and CAF Surgeon General MGen Marc Bilodeau about CFB Borden’s relationship with local hospitals, the community and about COVID-19 testing on-site.We learned during committee that COVID-19 is taking its toll on the mental health of our soldiers. I asked MGen Cadieu about work with local hospitals and the need for 24/7 mental health assistance.

This is an important issue that I will continue to talk about.
