Ex-Cadets and More in the News
With Alex Trebek being in the news, it was brought to our attention that he attended Royal Roads Military College circa 1958-1960. When we could not find any mention of him in the various ex-Cadet databases we have access to we reached out to several people who referred us to the Archives Manager at Royal Roads University. This is what we were told: “It is indeed a piece of Royal Roads folklore that Alex Trebek was here. The story I always heard was that he was here for less than a day before he decided it wasn’t for him and left. We have no official record of him here and no college number for him. Never one to leave it at that, I did a bit of digging and asking around today and was pointed to this web resource: https://www.eduinreview.com/blog/2010/12/alex-trebeks-education-background/ which states that it was College Militaire Royal de Saint-John that he attended, and for 6 days.” If anyone can confirm that and (ideally) point us to a College number for Alex Trebek, please let us know! *** Stéphanie ChouinardPierre LeblancMark NormanMark GoughWalter DornPeter Dawe JrAlan WhitehornAl MeinzingerPaul WynnykMarc GarneauLeona Alleslev Canada political crisis hurts Trudeau’s image as elections loom Stephanie Chouinard – assistant professor at RMC Article *** Statement – Minister Garneau celebrates International Women’s Day 8276 Marc Garneau Article Ethiopia, China ground all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes after crash kills 157 8276 Marc Garneau Article *** CANADIAN FORCES TRAIN LEBANESE ARMED FORCES IN WINTER WARFARE 21984 David Hill Article *** Mark Norman one of only three people DND refused to give help with legal bills in past two years Mark Norman / 17789 Leona Alleslev Article *** Is the Canadian Coast Guard Underfunded? 9123 Pierre Leblanc Article *** Damaged Cyclone helicopter now repaired, test flights underway 20157 Mark Gough Article *** ‘People might die’: Canada’s looming exit leaves concerns over safety of UN Mali peacekeeping mission Walter Dorn, Professor of Defence Studies, Royal Military College and the Canadian Forces College Article *** Canadian Forces look to recruit off the street for elite special forces to diversify skills G3281 Peter Dawe Jr Article *** The Birth of a Genocide Scholar Alan Whitehorn, Emeritus Professor of Political Science at RMC Article *** Wounded Warrior Run BC stops by 19 Wing Comox 26822 Yevgen Vazhaylo Article *** Canadian military wants retired pilots to come back – system needs to be flexible to allow that, says general 15706 Paul Wynnyk / 16888 Al Meinzinger Article ***
