RMC to send cadets home, proceed with online learning

March 26, 2020

Royal Military College has announced that the school will be “taking a pause” and making arrangements to send students home following complaints by the Union of National Defense Employees. Officer cadets can leave the campus once essential administration is completed and arrangements made for their travel home. In cases where students do not have another primary residence, they will remain at the school while completing their studies online and awaiting employment. “These were not easy decisions to make, but both of us thank you in advance for your understanding in these extraordinary times,” said Commandant Sebastien Bouchard and Principal Harry Kowal. “The safety and protection of the entire campus community remain paramount, and like others across this country, we must do everything possible to protect and support each other as we fight the spread of the virus.” The Whig Standard | CBC (ON | QC)
