EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- A new slate of Senior Elected Officers will take the reins of The Royal Canadian Legion for the next two years. The newly elected officers were chosen during the 45th Legion Dominion Convention in Edmonton. It is the first time in 14 years that the Legion delegates have elected a new senior elected officer in every position.
