Montreal, 30 April 2014 – The RMR Foundation was invited by the Whiff of Grape on the occasion of the Regiment’s Centennial to present the story of the RMR. The Whiff of Grape is an informal association of prominent leaders from Montreal’s business, civic, academic, and professional communities who meet monthly since 1964 to hear speakers who will impart greater understanding on issues of the day.
The RMR’s presentation was titled “Double Duty” to underscore the contributions of the Regiment, which has been made by ordinary Canadians doing extraordinary things as ‘Citizen-Soldiers’ over the past 100 years. It was explained to the group how the RMR continues to be active in theatres of operation around the world – including Canada – playing a vital part in the defence of Canada and making a positive contribution to the local community.
