20 March – International Francophonie Day / 20 mars – Journée mondiale de la francophonie

Chère Équipe du Collège,

En cette Journée internationale de la Francophonie, nous nous joignons aux francophones du Canada et de partout dans le monde pour célébrer la langue française et la culture francophone.

Tout au long de notre histoire, les francophones ont contribué à faire de notre pays un endroit dynamique, inclusif et ouvert sur le monde. Aujourd’hui, nous célébrons les nombreuses contributions de cette communauté, qui a joué et continue de jouer un rôle central dans l’évolution du Canada, ainsi que les valeurs qui nous unissent, comme l’entraide, la solidarité et la démocratie.

Cette journée est également l’occasion de rendre hommage aux liens profonds que nous entretenons avec la communauté francophone internationale. Le Canada s’engage à continuer de bâtir un monde meilleur en faisant la promotion des valeurs qui nous sont chères, comme la paix, la diversité et le respect des droits de la personne.

The Week That Was In Professional Development

With thanks to 27467 OCdt (IV) Daniel Zhao, CWIIO

Second Year – 28464 NCdt A. Pelletier

This week for professional military training we were briefed on the duties of a Cadet Section Commander and what to expect when put into this position. It was quite pertinent to us as Second Years since the most probable bar position for us in Third Year is that of Cadet Section Commander.

First Year – 29139 NCdt Corey Northcott

This week’s PMT was weapons drill conducted by the squadron Warrant Officers (WOs) to enhance the quality of the First Year’s weapons drill. This period was well organized with the WOs able to clear any confusion that the First Years may have had concerning weapons drill.
