St. Croix Branch 9 in New Brunswick is creating a museum to honour and remember
Legion Branch 9 in St. Stephen, New Brunswick is creating a military history museum to honour those who served and to educate future generations.
Branch members Paul (Trapper) Cane and Don Koehler have assembled and catalogued artifacts dating back to the Fenian raids of 1870 and the Boer War of 1899 to 1902. Their goal is to tell the stories of the people.

The Legion comments on last year’s unspent VAC funding
The Legion was surprised and concerned to learn that Veterans Affairs Canada didn’t spend nearly $1 billion of its budget last year. When asked for his views by media, Dominion President Bruce Julian stated that if this funding “remains available” in future years as reported, the Legion would like to know that it will not replace additional funding. Unused funds should be re-routed to completely eliminate the disability claims backlog – something that is taking way too long.
