Hello Bill, people have accused me of being stuck in the past but the article on the PPT disturbed me a bit in that looking at the stats presented indicates a Male 500 is not the same as a Female 500.

I thought the college had weeded out that sexism. The academics are more straight forward. And then the reporter asked the lady cadet how she felt about being beaten by only two cadets who happened to be IVyr? I think the reporter was trying to emphasize the first yr vs fourth year accomplishment but it only emphasized the male/female performance standards difference, for me anyway.

It seems to me like running a co-ed race like the Wing Harriers and after crossing the finish line first, to be told that you didn’t win because someone a few 100m behind you actually won!

In theory, after commissioning, all new officers will be ‘running’ on a level playing field so why not start during college life. Not being female I do not appreciate the concern they may have being assessed by a lower standard.

‘Glad we didn’t have to deal with that back in the early ’70s.

    I hope this letter sees you well as Christmas and New Year fast approaches.

    I must say I was a little disappointed that your section, “Catching Up With the News,” did not have the latest CANFORGENs listing the new command positions in both the RCN and RCAF, especially considering the numerous ex-cadets that are listed there. There have also been several awards and decorations announced with ex-cadets in the mix as well.

    We can probably attribute this miss on the lack of DWAN access you probably have, but there must be someone in the college who can keep an eye on these things for you. I would send you a copy myself, but am now away from the office for the holidays.

    Thanks again for all the time and effort that you put in to e-Veritas. Now you just need an iPad app so I can read it on the go!
