September 11, 2018 – Cameron Cathcart – “100th Anniversary of the end of WWI”

An amateur historian motivated by a career in journalism Cameron Cathcart has a keen
interest in Canadian military history. He spent 30 years with the Canadian Broadcasting
Corporation as a Parliamentary reporter in Ottawa, foreign correspondent in Washington, D.C.,
and TV News Director in Toronto.

Broadcasting has given him the opportunity to travel the world, including war zones and in recent years, the battlefields of Europe. This has given Mr. Cathcart a deeper appreciation of the contribution and sacrifice of Canada’s Veterans. He is the Director of Ceremonies for Vancouver’s annual Remembrance Day Service at Victory Square.

Mr. Cathcart received the prestigious Vancouver Civic Merit Award in 2015, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 and earlier, the Ministers Commendation from Veterans Affairs Canada. He initiated the annual Vimy Day Commemoration at Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Mr. Cathcart is President of Royal United Services Institute Vancouver and co-chairs the biannual RUSI Strategic Studies Conference. He holds the rank of Honorary Major in The British Columbia Regiment (DCO).
