The newest inductees into the RMC Athletic Wall of Distinction will be honoured in a virtual ceremony on Thursday, February 25, at 7:00 PM Eastern. Friends, fans, and family, as well as the wider RMC and sporting communities, are invited to watch the video presentation in its entirety on the Paladins Facebook and YouTube channels.

The event will be hosted by a Paladins varsity athlete, and feature speeches from Bill Oliver, Marilyne Lafortune, and Steve Molaski, in addition to a welcoming address from outgoing RMC Commandant, BGen Sebastien Bouchard.

Oliver and Lafortune make up the class of 2020, whose in-person induction was cancelled at the onset of the pandemic last March.

Steve Molaski, a 2019 inductee who was unable to attend his year’s event, is the keynote speaker.

Oliver, a former Director of Athletics at RMC, is being inducted in the builder category for a career of dedicated service to sport, and decades of support to athletics at the College and beyond.

Lafortune’s skill in fencing led the Paladins to three consecutive OUA banners, on top of her individual success. During her time at RMC, she was also named to the Canadian senior national team.

Molaski, who was also inducted in the athlete category, holds the all-time points record in the RMC hockey program, in addition to his Major Junior and CAF Sports legacies.



Les plus récents membres intronisés au Mur de la renommée sportive du CMR du Canada seront honorés dans une cérémonie virtuelle qui aura lieu le jeudi 25 février à 19 h, heure normale de l’Est. Les amis, les partisans et la famille ainsi que les grandes communautés du CMR et des sports sont invités à regarder la présentation vidéo dans sa totalité sur la chaîne YouTube et sur la page de Facebook des Paladins.

L’événement sera animé par un athlète universitaire des Paladins, et présentera des discours de Bill Oliver, Marilyne Lafortune et Steve Molaski, en plus d’un discours de bienvenue du commandant sortant du CMR, le brigadier-général Sébastien Bouchard.

Oliver et Lafortune constituent la cohorte de 2020; leur intronisation en personne a été annulée au début de la pandémie en mars dernier.

Steve Molaski, un membre intronisé en 2019 qui n’avait pas été en mesure d’assister à la cérémonie de son année, est le conférencier principal.

Oliver, un ancien directeur des sports au CMR, est intronisé dans la catégorie des bâtisseurs pour sa carrière au service des sports, et des décennies à soutenir les sports au Collège et au-delà.

Les habiletés de Lafortune en escrime ont mené les Paladins à remporter trois bannières des Sports universitaires de l’Ontario, en plus de ses succès individuels. Pendant son séjour au CMR, elle a aussi été nommée dans l’équipe nationale senior du Canada.

Molaski, qui a aussi été intronisé dans la catégorie des athlètes, détient le record de tous les temps du nombre de points accumulés dans le programme de hockey du CMR, en plus de ses exploits dans la ligue Junior majeure et dans les Sports des FAC.

    Three outstanding athletes/builders. Congratulations to all.

    Bill Oliver is a prince of a man, who spent his life to develop athletes and provide opportunities for them to grow. I witnessed this on many occasions from the the athletic perspective and also in the military. Richly deserved on many levels.

    I cannot imagine a more deserving inductee than you. Your contributions to RMC and the RMC Club in athletics and pretty well everything else that you have done there are legendary. I am honoured and humbled to be your friend! Bravo Zulu Bill!!
