Canadian Forces College is doing an excellent job n training military officers around the world and June 26th was the graduation ceremony with a truly Global feel.
"We prepare senior military and civilian leaders to meet the complex security challenges of the future." is the mission statement of Canadian Forces College and that exactly is what June 26th 2010 saw materialize in the presence of Minister of the crown, an ex-Minister and dignitaries beyond party lines, occupations and belief systems.
Over 200 graduates of senior military ranks from around the world (Poland, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, France, US, UK etc. to name a few countries) received their degrees and diplomas from the Canadian Minister of National defence Peter Mckay, General Craig Hilton, Major-General Fraser and several high ranking Military officials.Major Ted Opitz (the Senior advisor to the Minister of immigration Jason Kenney) also was in attendance along with his wife Cynthia.
The presence of Bollywood and Hollywood film maker Roger Nair must also be noted; who called Canada's contribution to the world, in sharing her knowledge in Military tactics and operations, remarkable. Also present at the occasion was Nepal's Ex Chief of Army staff Rukmangat Katwal
What really was very interesting to see had to be Mr. Bill Graham ( remember the liberal Foreign minister from the second Liberal regime of 2005-08 ) getting honored by Peter Mckay.Bill Graham also served as a defence minister in 2005
Good job CFC !!
