Welcome back to Defence Team News, I’m Lt(N) Jamie Bresolin.

And I’m Shelley Van Hoof. Here are the headlines at Defence.

A ceremony was recently held at 4 Wing Cold Lake to unveil this year’s CF-18 Demo Hornet.

The Royal Canadian Air Force selects a theme each year for the CF-18 air demonstration team. This year’s theme highlights NORAD’s 60th anniversary. Throughout the year, NORAD will also hold several events aimed at highlighting the importance of honouring the past, guarding the present, and protecting the future.

The Royal Canadian Air Force also appointed Captain Stefan Porteous as the pilot for this year’s Demonstration Team. Captain Porteous will travel across North America and the United Kingdom during the 2018 air show season, proudly flying this specially-painted aircraft.

The 2017 Public Service Employee Survey results for the Department of National Defence and the entire public service are now available on the Treasury Board website.

The survey is an important tool for employees to provide feedback on their workplace and an invaluable opportunity to help shape the future of National Defence and Canada’s federal public service.

Defence made significant progress in areas targeted in the 2014 Public Service Employee Survey Action Plan, but gaps still exist between DND’s results and those of the overall public service. The Department will work to close these gaps moving forward and address areas for improvement.

Employees are encouraged to read the Clerk of the Privy Council’s message regarding public service-wide results in the related links.

Before we go, Bravo Zulu to the Rocky Mountain Rangers who will receive the Freedom of the City from the City of Prince George, B.C.

The Rangers will formally accept this honour on April 21st by marching in parade towards Prince George City Hall. You can tune in to watch the live stream on the Canadian Army’s Facebook page.

That’s it for us. Thank you so much for watching. See you next time…
