THE DEMOLITION OF CANADIAN MILITARY HOUSINGIn the year 1985, CFB Rockcliffe encompassed 806 acres of land. Now, in 2012, the former military base has been reduced to 310 acres of land. All of the PMQ's, recreational centres, bus stops, the CANEX, aircraft hangars, Officer's Mess, the golf course, the school...are gone.
Many nearby residents are upset about the fact that they have been barred from access to the land, now owned by the Canada Lands Company. Shannon Park in Halifax will eventually be owned by the CLC, and the decommissioned housing complex is surrounded by a chain-link fence, see the YouTube video "Shannon Park - Halifax Nova Scotia".
