Liberals promise RMC St-Jean would become full university

College lost its university status after spending cuts in the 1990s

If the Liberals win the election, they promise to elevate Royal Military College in St-Jean to a full-fledged university. Presently, students attend the college for their first two years, and then move on to the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston to complete their studies. The college held university status until it was downgraded during the 1990s due to spending cuts. There are 140 students attending the St-Jean institution and the Liberals want that number to rise to at least 700.
