moved for leave to introduce Bill C-491, an act to amend the Injured Military Members Compensation Act.
Mr. Speaker, the bill seeks to amend the short title of the Injured Military Members Compensation Act to add a reference to Major (Retired) Bruce Henwood, who fought tirelessly for changes to the Canadian Forces insurance plan.
Thanks to Major Bruce Henwood's unrelenting efforts, regular and reserve members of the Canadian Forces, regardless of rank, are now covered for accidental dismemberment while in the line of duty.
I believe inserting his name in the short title of the act, would be a fitting tribute to Major Henwood for his work on behalf of all our soldiers.
