Canadian Forces probes spate of deaths at Royal Military College

MONTREAL—The Royal Military College of Canada is investigating the sudden deaths over the last four months of four students who attended the prestigious school last year.

Two officer cadets, aged 20 and 22, died within days of each other on the school’s Kingston, Ont., campus. The deaths occurred in April and May.

Then in June, RMC graduate, Sub-Lt. Eric Leclerc, 39, took his own life at CFB Borden, near Barrie, Ont., where he was on a training course five months after finishing his RMC studies.

The most recent death occurred this month in Saint John, N.B., and involved a 19-year-old officer cadet who was being medically released from the military.

Officials did not comment on the possible causes of death for any of the men.  (more...)

A dark legacy:
