KELOWNA — It would appear one of Stephen Fuhr's election promises has been taken care of.

The Kelowna-Lake Country Liberal MP said he would bring a Veterans Affairs office back to Kelowna if elected.

That is expected to be made official on Tuesday.

Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr will be in Kelowna Tuesday for what is being billed as a "breaking announcement regarding veterans affairs."

A news conference is scheduled for 9 a.m. in front of the Service Canada office on Queensway.

It is expected he will announce the timing of a new Veterans Affairs office in Kelowna.

The Veterans Affairs office in Kelowna was closed by the Conservative government in February of 2014.

"This is one of the first issues I tackled after the election. I am pleased that our veterans will be served in a manner that is important to them! I hope you can be there with us during the announcement," said Fuhr on his Facebook page.

"Promise made, promise kept. This is the Canada we love!"
