On March 17, 2022, LGen (ret’d) Maisonneuve, formerly Director of Studies at the Royal Military College Saint-Jean from 2007 to 2018, was inducted into the College’s Hall of Fame to highlight his extraordinary passage in the institution. He played a leading role in the reopening of this institution and in its journey towards a return to university status. He was an important architect for the future of the College through his involvement and his passion, and as he mentioned during the event: “Part of my heart will stay here forever. ”

C’est le 17 mars 2022 que Lgén (ret) Maisonneuve, anciennement directeur des études du Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean de 2007 à 2018, a été intronisé au Temple de la renommée du Collège afin de souligner son passage hors du commun dans l’institution. Il a joué un rôle prépondérant dans la réouverture de cette institution et dans son cheminement vers un retour au statut universitaire. Il a été un artisan important pour l’avenir du Collège par son implication ainsi que sa passion, et tel qu’il l’a évoqué lors de l’événement : « Une partie de mon coeur va rester ici pour toujours. ».

    I am delighted to see this recognition for hard & compassionate work in the “Rising of the Phoenix of RMC Saint-Jean”. I am thankful it was you Michel, who Gen Hillier chose to lead the charge. Even though Chrétien has (apparently) admitted closing CMR was one of his biggest mistakes – an ENORMOUS mistake in my mind – thank goodness YOU were willing to take on the task of bringing it to life again. Your combination of commitment, tenacity, knowledge, smarts, and leadership are truly appreciated by me! Merci et Félicitations.
