DFAIT's Foreign Homes For Sale

Published: Wednesday, 07/25/2007 12:00 am EDT

DFAIT is selling some of its foreign properties, the Globe and Mail reported yesterday. A list of properties for sale appears on the computerized public tender system. Deputy high commissioner to London Guy Saint-Jacques said the property sales "reflect a change in the way diplomacy is practiced" in that fewer diplomats are hosting receptions at their private residences, and that the buildings require millions in upkeep and renovations. The houses will be put on the market over the next two years.
