In January 2013, he joined the MARLANT
Staff as N31 Surface Operations and Deputy COS for the Maritime Component Commander for a three month period.
The creation of a Maritime Arctic Command to compliment MARLANT
and MARPAC is long overdue.
"It has truly been an honour to be the Commander of MARLANT
and JTFA, as I have had the opportunity to work with many great Canadians in the service of our country," said Rear Admiral Gardam.
I have also called on the federal government and Treasury Board to exempt DND from charging Canadian Forces members and DND employees for parking at Canadian Forces bases across the country-Starting April 1st, or April Fool's Day, Maritime Forces Atlantic (MARLANT
) will begin to charge Canadian Forces personnel and DND employees for parking on seven properties in Nova Scotia for those who have reserved spots and charges are likely coming soon for those who use 'scramble parking' spots.
