CFGB Message to the Troops

June 8, 2009

The CFGB expressed its support for the men and women of the Canadian Forces celebrating the CF Day on June 8th by posting a message to the troops on the Write to the Troops Web site. In this message, the Board's Chairperson, Mr. Bruno Hamel, praised the troops courage and commitment.

"As we celebrate the CF Day, I would like to thank you, on behalf of all the staff at the CFGB, for your unwavering commitment to the defense and protection of our country and its values. In Canada and abroad, your courage and professionalism have been demonstrated time and again. Your selfless contribution to peace and security in the world make you the best ambassadors of Canada abroad, where you contribute, through tremendous sacrifice, to building a better world. For this, the CFGB would like to express its gratitude and assure you that it is committed to contributing, to the maximum extent of its mandate and responsibilities, to the continued improvement of your conditions of service. As an administrative tribunal independent from DND and the CF, we review your grievances, referred to us by the CDS, and we render impartial findings and recommendations. Rest assured that we pay very close attention to all of the issues you raise and that are referred to us for review. It is our humble way of contributing to the success of your missions. Because actions speak louder than words, I would like you all to know that as an expression of our unwavering support, we will be participating in the CF CFGB Message to the Troops on Friday, June 5 in Ottawa. We will do so while thinking of you, the men and women, soldiers, sailors and members of the Air Force, who defend and protect us every single day."
