During the month of April 2020, Judd Foster was selected as the 2nd recipient of the CMPA Scholarship award. Judd is a Highland graduate and a first-year student at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Engineering Science. This four-year undergraduate program will allow him to specialize in electronics in his third year. Striving for excellence, he earned a 3.85 GPA in his first term and was recognized on the Dean’s Honour Roll after completing his second term.
Community minded, Judd joined the SFU Robot Soccer Club’s electronics team. Working together with mechanical and software teams, the club’s goal is to fabricate a robot that incorporates the use of motors, sensors, and wireless communication to prepare for upcoming competitions. While quickly assuming a general leadership role within his work group, he was appointed Electronics Team Leader. He is currently implementing improvements to make the team more efficient, and even though this adds to his daily work load, it’s also a way for him to relieve stress and share his passion with others as he builds working relationships and make connections with his fellow teammates.
Recently, as part of an Academic project Judd created a device to detect drowsiness in vehicle drivers using an infra-red camera to recognize when the eyes close. It also included capacitive sensors mounted on the steering wheel to detect grip changes.
As a recent Skills Canada Nationals gold medal winner in electronics, he became a member of Team Canada and dedicated himself to over a year of intensive training, competing in World Skills in the UAE in electronics at a post-secondary level. Since the competition, he is volunteering with Skills Canada, offering leadership to participants in the electronics trade. He continues to mentor the Highland First Robotics team, offering direction, guidance and support in programming for their spring competition.
While at High school, he excelled in electronics and wanted to give back to the school's program and he wanted to help inspire students in the field of science and engineering. So to complete this goal he became a teacher’s assistant during his graduating year where he lead, directed and supported students in Robotics by creating electronic and robotic demonstrations for classroom projects and helped manage the class.
Due to the current policies in relation to social distancing and groups, no photo was taken of the cheque presentation.
Congratulations Judd, your scholarship is certainly well deserved!

The CMPA recently received this information from the Director General, Commemoration Veterans Affairs Canada and felt it should be posted here in order to get the word out.
We are writing to you today because, despite these difficult and unprecedented times, a very important commemorative milestone is upon us. This year marks the 75th anniversaries of the Battle of the Atlantic, the Liberation of the Netherlands and Victory in Europe (V-E Day). Canadians – whether serving in the Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Canadian Air Force, or the Canadian Army, overseas or on the home front – all contributed to the long-awaited liberation of Europe.
From September 1939 to May 1945, the Canadian Merchant Navy transported vital supplies and troops across the Atlantic Ocean, helping fuel the eventual Allied victory in Europe. Tens of thousands of brave Canadians took part in the Battle of the Atlantic, serving on merchant vessels and naval warships, as well as in the air force planes that helped protect the Allied convoys. More than 4,600 of them would lose their lives in this bitter struggle at sea.
The Liberation of the Netherlands, from the fall of 1944 to the spring of 1945, is one of our country’s best known efforts during the Second World War, and saw close to 175,000 Canadians take part. Our soldiers steadily pushed back the enemy on the battlefield and also undertook humanitarian relief efforts like air-dropping desperately needed food for the starving Dutch civilians. On 5 May 1945, Canadian troops accepted the surrender of the remaining German forces in the Netherlands. Two days later, all German forces surrendered across Europe. The next day, 8 May 1945, was officially declared V-E Day.
Although in-person ceremonies and events commemorating these special anniversaries have been postponed, we are providing Canadians with a virtual opportunity to safely commemorate and remember those who have sacrificed for our freedom. We are actively telling our Veterans’ stories, promoting learning activities and encouraging participation on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) using interactive tools such as videos, imagery, and podcasts.
We are also encouraging audiences (parents, grandparents, caregivers, children, youth) to take advantage of our online learning materials to learn more about the importance of remembrance. Our webpage includes Faces of Freedom stories, options for virtual postcards, historical information, learning materials, visuals, our commemorative poster and more. You can also join us in taking part in a long lasting Dutch tradition to honour those who served and sacrificed. The National Day of Remembrance in the Netherlands takes place annually on May 4 and includes two minutes of silence. In these unprecedented times, let’s be #SilentToRemember and show our Veterans that we will recognize them from our homes – in Canada and in the Netherlands.
Many of our partners are also commemorating this milestone with interactive and digital initiatives. Visit our webpage for a list of partners and to learn more about their initiatives.
In the shared spirit and goal of remembering this commemorative milestone, we hope that you will take a moment to share our content on your channels and within your networks. We believe a big part in making these anniversaries a success will be our partners, like you, who are willing to share and highlight these initiatives with their members, many of whom have personal connections to the Liberation of the Netherlands.
We also recognize that you may be undertaking efforts to shift commemorative activities to a digital platform. We encourage you to not only share your material, but also let us know what you are planning so we can promote your initiatives wherever possible.
As always, we encourage you to join the conversation on social media using the hashtags #CanadaRemembers, #Netherlands75 and #VEDay75.
Together, we can ensure that those who served are properly honored despite these difficult and unprecedented times.
The courage and valour of those who served in the first half of the 20th century is still reflected in today’s Canadian Armed Forces. Thank you for your service.

L'APMC a récemment reçu cette information du directeur général, Commémoration Anciens Combattants Canada et a estimé qu'il devrait être affiché ici afin de faire passer le mot
Le présent message vise à vous informer que, malgré la situation difficile et sans précédent que nous traversons, nous nous apprêtons à souligner un jalon important de notre histoire. Ce printemps marque le 75e anniversaire de la bataille de l’Atlantique, de la libération des Pays‑Bas et du jour de la Victoire en Europe. Les Canadiens – qu’il aient servi dans la Marine royale canadienne, l’Aviation royale canadienne ou l’Armée canadienne, à l'étranger ou sur le front intérieur – ont tous contribué à la libération tant attendue de l'Europe.
De septembre 1939 à mai 1945, la Marine marchande canadienne a transporté des troupes et des fournitures essentielles de l’autre côté de l’Atlantique et ainsi contribué à la victoire finale des Alliés en Europe. Des dizaines de milliers de courageux Canadiens ont pris part à la bataille de l’Atlantique à bord de navires marchands, de navires de guerre et d’aéronefs afin de protéger les convois alliés. Plus de 4 600 d’entre eux ont perdu la vie dans cet âpre combat en mer.
La libération des Pays‑Bas, qui s’est déroulée de l’automne 1944 au printemps 1945, a été l’un des efforts de guerre du Canada les mieux connus de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Près de 175 000 Canadiens y ont pris part. Nos soldats ont constamment repoussé l’ennemi sur le champ de bataille et ont déployé des efforts d’aide humanitaire, notamment par le largage de denrées alimentaires essentielles depuis les airs pour les civils hollandais affamés. Le 5 mai 1945, les troupes ont accepté la capitulation des forces allemandes qui restaient encore aux Pays‑Bas. Deux jours plus tard, toutes les forces allemandes d’un bout à l’autre de l’Europe ont capitulé. Le jour suivant, le 8 mai 1945, a été déclaré officiellement le jour de la Victoire en Europe.
Étant donné que les cérémonies et autres activités commémoratives qui devaient se dérouler en personne pour souligner cet important jalon ont été reportées, nous tenions à offrir aux Canadiens la possibilité de les souligner de façon virtuelle et sécuritaire, et de se souvenir de ceux qui se sont sacrifiés pour notre liberté. Nous travaillons activement à faire connaître les histoires de nos vétérans, à promouvoir des activités d’apprentissage et à encourager la participation sur nos médias sociaux (Facebook, Twitter et Instagram) à l’aide d’outils interactifs tels que les vidéos, les images et les balados.
Nous encouragerons également les divers publics (parents, grands‑parents, proches aidants, enfants, jeunes) à profiter de nos ressources d’apprentissage en ligne pour en apprendre davantage sur l’importance de la commémoration. Notre page Web comprend, entre autres, des histoires de vétérans dans le cadre de l’initiative Visages de la liberté, des options de cartes postales virtuelles, des fiches de renseignements historiques, du matériel d’apprentissage, des images, notre affiche commémorative et plus encore. Vous pouvez aussi vous joindre à nous pour participer à la tradition de longue date des Hollandais visant à honorer ceux qui ont servi et qui ont consenti le sacrifice ultime. Aux Pays‑Bas, la Journée nationale du Souvenir est soulignée chaque année le 4 mai et comprend deux minutes de silence. En cette période sans précédent, observons une #pausesilence pour nous souvenir de nos vétérans et manifester notre reconnaissance depuis notre domicile, au Canada et aux Pays‑Bas.
Bon nombre de nos partenaires soulignent cet important jalon au moyen d’initiatives interactives et numériques. Consultez notre page Web pour obtenir la liste de nos partenaires et en apprendre davantage au sujet de leurs initiatives.
Ayant comme objectif commun de commémorer cette page importante de notre histoire, nous espérons que vous prendrez un moment pour diffuser notre contenu sur vos chaînes de médias sociaux et au sein de vos réseaux. Nous croyons que les partenaires comme vous qui sont disposés à faire connaître et à mettre en valeur ces initiatives auprès de leurs membres, dont bon nombre ont des liens personnels avec la libération des Pays‑Bas, contribuent en grande partie au succès de ces anniversaires.
Nous sommes par ailleurs conscients que vous avez peut‑être dû déployer des efforts pour faire passer vos activités commémoratives à une plateforme numérique. Nous vous invitons non seulement à diffuser votre contenu, mais également à nous faire savoir ce que vous planifiez afin que nous puissions promouvoir vos initiatives lorsque c’est possible.
Comme toujours, nous vous invitons à prendre part à la conversation sur les médias sociaux à l’aide des mots‑clics #LeCanadasesouvient, #PaysBas75 et #JourVE75.
Ensemble, nous pouvons veiller à ce que ceux qui ont servi soient honorés comme il se doit, malgré cette période difficile et sans précédent.
Le courage de ceux qui ont servi pendant la première moitié du XXe siècle est encore présent dans les Forces armées canadiennes. Merci d’avoir servi le Canada.

2019 CMPA Scholarship Awards
On 21 Feb 2020, LCol Adam Battista, Commandant of the Canadian Forces Military Police Academy had the pleasure of presenting a scholarship cheque on behalf of the CMPA to Miss Meghan Ridley, who was accompanied by her Father CWO Dave Ridley, Academy CWO.
In addition to a solid academic performance, Meghan demonstrated a strong community and school involvement with multiple organizations. Meghan “considers giving back to your community to be one of the most significant accomplishments a young person can have” Her most noteworthy involvement is the 250+ hours she has devoted to the local Hospital Emergency Room. She volunteers weekly and helps the nurses, patients and visitors in any way possible.
Meghan has also volunteered as a coach for a local Under 9 girls Lacrosse Team where, as a coach, she is able to not only motivate the young girls, but is able to act as a positive role model, mentor and leader to these young girls. She further volunteers her time once a week as a Teacher’s assistant for predominantly grade 6-8 students. Specifically, she works with young children who have learning disabilities or those who are struggling with the educational material.
Meghan aspires to be working in the pharmaceutical field which requires a lengthy amount of education and finances. She will start this long journey this fall at Queen’s University where she will go into her first year of her undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Engineering and then in her second year, she will specialize in chemical engineering.
Congratulations Meghan, your scholarship is certainly well deserved!

The MP Kit shop has finally received the smaller 2 x 2 inches CADPAT Close Protection (CP) Qualification badge patch with Velcro backing.
There are now 2 Sizes of patches available.
Large Size measuring 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches is great for mounting in shadow boxes or displays, worn on vests or ball caps.
Smaller size measuring 2 x 2 inches which is the official size for wearing on the CADPAT uniform by serving members
Initially, when attempting to fabricate the CP Patch, we were advised by our supplier that due to the extensive detail required for this patch, the smallest patch possible would be the 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches patch.
Our suppler, who is the same for CANEX and the CF, has now designed the newer and smaller version so that it meets the current CF Regulations on Qualification badge sizes.
Any currently serving member, who purchased the larger size patch believing it was an authorized patch may, from their "Forces email account" contact the Kit shop manager at email@example.com for a replacement - please include your invoice number if possible.
The management and staff of the MP Kit shop apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused.
Serving Members: There is a CANFORGEN out ref the placement of badges on CADPAT and authorized providers.
Looking Back: Herbie versus the Military Police—from the Wartime Cartoons of Bing Coughlin
On 12 November 2019, the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal launched a new Facebook page dedicated to Canada's Military Police at www.facebook.com/MilitaryPoliceMilitaireCanada/. Reprinted below are Brigadier-General Trudeau's introductory remarks for this new Military Police Branch communications venture. The launch was accompanied by a new MP branding graphic (above).
From the office of the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal | Cabinet du Grand Prévôt des Forces canadiennes:
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal Facebook page where we will share the stories of the men and women of Canada’s Military Police whose mission is to provide professional policing, security and detention services to the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence globally, across the full spectrum of military operations.
The Military Police success on operations, at home and around the world, is a direct result of our member’s exceptional skills, dedication and professional competence. I am extremely proud of the remarkable men and women of the Canadian Forces Military Police Group, both military and civilian. Their unwavering dedication in executing the Military Police program provides value to the commanders we support, and ultimately contributes to the safety, effectiveness and readiness of the CAF.
C’est avec plaisir que je vous souhaite la bienvenue sur la page Facebook du Grand prévôt des Forces canadiennes, où nous partagerons les histoires des hommes et des femmes de la Police militaire du Canada dont la mission est de fournir des services de police professionnels, des services de sécurité et de détention offerts pour les Forces armées canadiennes (FAC) et pour le ministère de la Défense nationale à l’échelle mondiale, dans l’ensemble des opérations militaires.
Le succès de la Police militaire dans les opérations, au pays et partout dans le monde, est le résultat direct des attributs exceptionnels, du dévouement et de la compétence professionnelle de chacun de nos membres. Je suis extrêmement fier des hommes et des femmes remarquables du Groupe de la police militaire des Forces canadiennes, tant militaires que civils. Leur dévouement indéfectible à l’égard de l’exécution du programme de la police militaire est précieux pour les commandants que nous appuyons et, en fin de compte, contribue à la sécurité, à l’efficacité et à l’état de préparation des FAC.

The details of the sinking of the S.S. Nerissa were highly classified until almost 50 years after the event. The tragic loss of this ship on 30 April 1941 resulted in the third largest loss of life for a ship sunk by U-boats in the approaches to the British Isles. The deaths of 81 Merchant Navy seamen, 100 Canadian, British and Norwegian troops, 9 American Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) pilots and 17 civilian passengers touched not only Canadian families at the time, but also many families in the allied nations and the neutral United States. This book focuses on the events which led up to the sinking by U-552 (Erich Topp) and the resulting public relations dilemma on the Canadian home-front. Also included are eye witness accounts from many of the survivors and some stories of those who perished. Much of the material is based on the analysis of testimony, recollections and official reports taken from survivors, as well as declassified Canadian, British and German documents.
This book is currently trending at about #6 in Amazon’s Canadian Naval Military History “hot new releases”: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/new-releases/books/928740

CMPA Director of History & Heritage LCol (Ret'd) Paul Thobo-Carlsen presents a cheque to NAFMC Curator Laura Imrie while NAFMC Executive Director Kevin Windsor and CMPA Veterans' Membership Rep Maj (Ret'd) Wayne Kendall look on.
On 8 July 2019, the CMPA presented a $5000 cheque to the National Air Force Museum of Canada (Trenton ON) to assist in building a permanent exhibit to explain the important role played by Air Force Police and Military Police in securing the nuclear weapons used by Canada’s air force during the Cold War. This money, combined with other private and corporate donations, will be used to create and maintain a high quality display at this publicly accessible museum.
Phase 1 of the exhibit, planned for completion in the next 12 months, will focus on the sentry dog program at Canada’s air bases in Germany (1963 to 1972) and will feature an AFP sentry dog/handler display (full size mannequins and backdrop depicting a nuclear-armed CF-104 fighter-bomber in an alert area), along with accompanying storyboards and artifact display cases.
Phase 2, to commence once the museum’s new expansion annex is completed in approximately 3-4 years, will see the display moved to the planned Cold War section and enlarged to showcase the various roles played by AFPs and MPs in securing other RCAF/CAF nuclear weapon systems, including the BOMARC surface-to-air missiles and Genie air-to-air rockets deployed in Canada under the NORAD umbrella.
The National Air Force Museum of Canada has established a specific trust fund to collect the remaining money necessary to complete and maintain the AFP/MP exhibit, and donors will be provided charitable donation receipts for income tax purposes.
Donations to the trust fund may be made by cheque to the “National Air Force Museum of Canada.” Please ensure all cheques are clearly annotated with “Attn: Air Force Police Exhibit Trust Fund” to ensure they are appropriately directed. Donation cheques should be mailed to:
National Air Force Museum of Canada
220 RCAF Road
Astra, ON K0K 3W0
Any former AFP or MP sentry dog handlers who wish to donate related artifacts in support of this exhibit should contact the CMPA (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the details of items for consideration. Any artifacts subsequently accepted into the NAFMC collection will also be eligible for income tax receipts.

Message from LCol Dan Dandurand
I am seeking your support for a major event taking place in Ontario. Our hope is to raise a significant amount of funds in order to purchase much needed equipment for adaptive sports. Specifically, we want to be able to equip Team Canada for the 2020 Invictus Games and 2020 Warrior Games.
I have recently taken part in the 2019 Warrior Games and can personally attest to the transformative power of adaptive sports for ill and injured soldiers.
Please note; you do not have to be present to win and you can also make donations which we will be happy to provide a tax receipt (for donations above 10.00).
Attached are posters and you can also take a look at my article which was published in the Maple Leaf, a Canadian Armed Forces newspaper.
Your support is much needed and even more appreciated.
Please buy tickets, donate, volunteer, participate and share.
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Together we can make a huge difference in the lives of our ill and injured.
In the Internet era it is easy to forget that newspapers were once a primary means of reaching potential military recruits. A scan of Canadian newspapers from 1940 to 1968 reveals a surprisingly large number of ads seeking service police members for the three pre-unification armed services. Read the full article and view these historical recruiting ads.

The Thunderbird, in the Northwest Pacific Coast First Nations style, has been the primary symbol the Military Police of the Canadian Armed Forces for almost half a century. The Thunderbird badge was first adopted by the Security Branch, the predecessor of the current Military Police Branch, in the early 1970’s. Read more about how this symbol came to be adopted by the Military Police and view some early draft versions of the Branch badge here.
