HALIFAX — CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie used some of his time in Halifax for this year’s Touchdown Atlantic game to visit with local members of the Canadian Armed Forces, as part of a long-standing partnership.

Ambrosie visited the CFB Halifax Base on Wednesday, July 26 — meeting and chatting with a number of Canadian Armed Forces figures — ahead of Friday’s CFL and CAF-hosted reception for Touchdown Atlantic.
