Update on Access to HMCS NONSUCH and Uniform Policy
As a result of the events last week in Eastern Canada, there are some additional precautions being undertaken with regards to accessing HMCS NONSUCH and the wearing of uniforms to ensure the continued safety of cadets and their families. Until notified otherwise, only cadets and appropriately screened adults are allowed access to HMCS NONSUCH as the property is a Department of National Defence establishment. This is in response to nationwide changes and is not any indication of any specific safety concern with regards to HMCS NONSUCH. These authorized personnel are to enter only through the southeast entrance and must sign in upon arrival. At the end of the night, the main parking lot will be open for cadets to be picked up, but parents must wait in their vehicles.
Any families wishing to join cadets are still welcome to come in for information or to register. When stopped at the gate or door, simply state that you are there to get information about joining cadets and you will be escorted in.
Cadets can wear their uniforms to and from home to cadet activities and during all supervised events. To clarify, these are training and events organized by the 395 Squadron staff. While travelling in uniform, cadets cannot stop to partake in other unrelated activities. Cadets shall not wear their uniforms for other than officially sanctioned activities.
No cadet is required to participate in any activity if they or their parents are uncomfortable or feel unsafe. The squadron staff will continue to provide responsible supervision; the security and safety of cadets remains paramount.

In 2013, Bob was diagnosed with oral cancer and died in December of complication of this disease. Bob was an avid believer in the cadet program and would encourage all cadets to strive to do their best.
