On Wednesday morning the Military staff and Cadet wing gathered on the Parade square for medals presentations. The Commandant also took this opportunity to speak to the parade about the very difficult prior week that the Canadian Forces and the nation had experienced as a result of the heinous actions of Russell Williams. The Commandant highlighted the CDS’s words found in CANFORGEN stressing the need to move beyond this difficult period and to stand tall and be proud of everything that the CF represents.
