Bruce, normally I would agree with your comment but this past week I was in Regina and took advantage of the business trip to visit the Saskatchewan Military Museum. This museum is housed in the Regina Armouries and, plastered on their front door, was a sign saying "Cadets - Join the Militia while remaining a cadet". The requirements were; age 16, etc.. and the come-on included the $8,000 in post-secondary bursaries available to Reservists.
With the Militia increasingly supporting the Regs they need more and more recruits to meet ther numbers. Cadets are a natural 'pool' as they show the interest.
