DCO’s Corner – 03OCT2021

Good afternoon everyone.  Hope you’re enjoying your weekend.

This week marks the first week of in-person training activities.  It’s been a long time coming and I know we, the staff, can’t wait to see each and every one of you.    So, get your hair cut, and your uniforms ready and we’ll see you on Wednesday night for the start of training.   Watch your inbox for this week’s WRO’s from Capt Lemoine for further details.  Now for the going’s on:

Welcome Back:

1st off, let’s join Brigadier-General Jamie Speiser-Blanchet, Commander Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers, as she welcomes program participants and leaders to the 2021/22 training year.


National Day for Truth and Reconciliation:

As you may be aware, the government recently passed legislation to make September 30th a federal statutory holiday called the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.  The intention of this day is to provide an opportunity for Canadians to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools. Our thoughts are with our indigenous Cadets and their families across Canada. Everyone in Canada has a role to play in learning about and addressing the ongoing impacts of residential schools and of the many children who never returned home.

Lt Nicolescu – Completes her AETC

Congratulations on the completion of your AETC over the past 10 days up at Connaught.  Bravo Zulu.

That’s all for now.   See you Wednesday night
