Sad Day For Th Canadian Cadet Movement

Breaking news: the Canadian Cadet Program has been suspended indefinitely at a national level in the face of the terrorist threat to cadets.
The Chief of Reserves and Cadets has finally issued a CanCdtGen Bureaucrat Order suspending the Canadian Cadet Program indefinitely.
While today's dithering, and the conflicting direction across the various RCSUs, Detachments, corps and squadrons has been a national embarrassment in the face of a need for decisive action, we applaud the... final decision to suspend the cadet program indefinitely in the face of the credible threat of terror against all Canadian cadets.
I remember the great times I have spent as an air cadet. Granted, times have changed but shutting down the training of young men and women to become good citizens can't be a good thing. I learned so much as a cadet from ages 13 to 18 that I am convinced it made me a better man and teacher. I learned how to work with others from all across Canada to accomplish tasks in survival and search and rescue. Those old school lessons can not be lost.

Oh, that is very unfortunate. Cadets does a lot of kids a lot of good.
