Effective Speaking & Debate Team

Learn to speak with confidence in front of large audiences. The squadron effective speaking program trains cadets to write and deliver prepared and impromptu addresses to audiences of their peers. Participants may have the opportunity to compete at the squadron, zone, provincial and national levels.

Cadets participating in parliamentary debate will learn how to develop arguments on topical subjects in a competitive format, similar to a debate in the House of Commons or Legislative Assembly of Ontario. The debate team competes in the OPC Ontario Debate Competition annually, with a series of prepared and impromptu debates throughout the day.
