Jean-Yves Duclos, MP for Québec and minister of families, children and social development, and Carla Qualtrough, minister of public services and procurement, deliver their official opening statements before the doors of the Salle d’Armes (Drill Hall) were opened to the media and other guests.

A little more than 10 years after a fire best described as an inferno left it a huge burnt-out stone shell, the rebuilt Voltigeurs de Québec Armoury on Grande Allée officially opened last week in its new mission as a multipurpose building.
