Canada's first residence for homeless vets in Ottawa named in honour of hero pilot
from The Chronicle Herald
For sailors and airmen lost at sea, the sound of a Consolidated PBY-5A Canso aircraft overhead meant help was on the way. The lumbering twin-engined “flying boats” could land on water to rescue the helpless from their peril. The symbolism couldn’t be missed when a restored Canso recently roared low overhead as the ceremonial cornerstone was laid for the Andy Carswell Building, a 40-unit residence for homeless veterans that will be the first of its kind in Canada when it opens in November 2020.
