M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario Veterans¡¯ Council President, Joseph Paquette, presents a
M¨¦tis sash to the incoming Commander of CFB Borden
On July 6, 2012, MNO Veterans¡¯ Council President, Joseph Paquette, attended the ceremony marking the change of command at CFB Borden from Brigadier General J.P.L. Meloche, OMM, CD, to Colonel T.L. Harris, CD. Best wishes were conveyed to outgoing Brigadier General Meloche and a M¨¦tis sash was presented to incoming Colonel Harris.
Under the command of Brigadier General Meloche, CFB Borden hosted the very successful "Aboriginal Youth Black Bear Program" for the past two years. During this time Mr. Paquette participated in the Black Bear Program as the "M¨¦tis Elder". This is the last year for the Black Bear Program at CFB Borden, but the program will continue to offer the same opportunities to First Nations, M¨¦tis and Inuit youth from across Canada at its new location in Gagetown, New Brunswick.See ALL news articles
