Funding for The Military Museums

The Prime Minister's website is reporting important news for the presentation of Canadian military history by one of the country's largest military museums. Under the title "Canada's New Government announces support for local military museum" issued on 25 May 2007, the federal government announced that it would contribute $5 million to The Military Museums (the former Museum of the Regiments) in Calgary, Alberta. Prime Minister Harper remarked: "As the national government, we must do our part to ensure projects that seek to tell Canadians the stories that have shaped the country we know and love today, just as The Military Museums will do, flourish across the country, not just in the nation’s capital.”
