that’s strongest in the R.C.M.P. is our commitment to youth,” Tarachandra said. Only one in thirty cadets proceed on to military service or working with the police. “In this environment here, we’re able to develop youths so that they can develop others throughout their lives. They’re trained to lead at an adult level.” By the end of their fourth year, cadets are expected to be “masters at instruction.” Cadets are offered some free and exceptional travel opportunities. This year they took a trip to Quebec on an exchange with a regiment from Montreal. There were some issues with language during the five-day trip. “Some of us aren’t bilingual, and we were able to function very productively, and have a lot of fun,” Tarachandra said. The trip served as the year’s highlight for many cadets.

Chief Warrant Officer Leach-Trudeau’s highlight is yet to come because this summer he goes to Scotland to train with cadets there. He also is retiring this year from the regiment. “You learn lots. The principles are leadership, citizenship, physical fitness and discipline. It goes on and on,” he said of his overall experience. The 2990 regiment is always looking for new members and volunteers.
