“The NATO Council of Canada’s Annual General Meeting 2013”
In a by-gone era, the bells at Canadian universities once rang out in tribute for students in uniform, when young people received army, navy and air force training on campus. Through the decisive decades of the 20th Century, the programs of the Canadian Officers Training Corps (COTC) produced leaders of business, politics and the military. Then, in 1968, the COTC and its sister service programs were suddenly abolished.Robert Roy’s presentation to the NATO Council on June 11 will review the history of Canada’s lost tradition of university military training when citizenship, leadership and service were part of a university education and review the Breakout Educational Network’s initiative to revive a contemporary program to provide these values.
