NCC developing commemoration plans

At its meeting at the end of June the National Capital Commission Board approved in principle a Military Commemoration Plan for Canada’s Capital. It's the first of three commemoration plans the NCC will develop.
The military plan includes designating a route from the Cartier Square Drill Hall and the Sharpshooter Monument via the National War Memorial and along Wellington Street to the War Museum. That plan should include an appropriate way to remember Cpl Nathan Cirillo.
The second plan will be for social, cultural and scientific commemorations, and the third encompass historical and political commemorations.
Can we hope for a higher profile for social, cultural and scientific commemorations than the backwater defunct bakery housing the Museum of Science and Technology?
