Media Advisory: Veterans Affairs Minister Steven Blaney to Join Veterans and Students for Wartime Lunch

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2011) - The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Veterans Affairs, will join Veterans and students from across the country for a wartime lunch. The relatively modest fare is typical of what Canadians ate on the home front during the Second World War in order that more food could be sent to the men and women serving overseas. The lunch is part of the 'Canada Remembers' theme week at the Historica-Dominion Institute's Encounters with Canada program.

Date: November 10, 2011
Location: Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre
1805 Gaspé Avenue
Ottawa, Ontario
Time: 12:00 p.m.
