The base commander of Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Kingston, Col. Kirk Gallinger, addressed several dozen members of the Canadian Club at their monthly luncheon.
His speech to the group was an update on investment at the base and the challenges that military personnel face moving forward.
CFB Kingston has close to 8,000 military and civilian personnel, making it an important economic driver in the Limestone City.
Currently, millions of dollars are being spent to address aging infrastructure, such as roads, sewers and buildings, on the armed forces base.
Gallinger says new buildings are also being constructed.
“In the spring, maybe summer, we’ll be opening up a brand-new logistics building that is about a $40-million investment,” he said.
