CFB Esquimalt will remain closed for a second straight day on Tuesday.

Base Commander Captain (Navy) Jason Boyd made the announcement on Monday night.

“Due to the on-going inclement weather, I have made the decision to keep the base closed tomorrow in the interest of safety for our personnel and members of the community.”
