How surprising. I thought that the 'Road-ent probelm' was fixed way back when they closed RRMC? ;)

Rats, mould and bugs: Issues plaguing the Royal Military College cafeteria​

College says rodent problem is fixed, but food complaints continue, according to student​


The morning after deep cleaning began at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) cafeteria in Kingston, Ont., a crew arrived to find a rat "convulsing in death throes" on a cart in the dish room.

It was Aug. 14, 2022 and a plan to spend three days scrubbing and disinfecting in order to reopen the Cadet Dining Hall (CDH), where a battle had been waged against a pest problem for weeks, was about to end in retreat.

An email from a shift supervisor paints a grisly picture.

It describes another rat dead in a trap by the juice machine, a large pool of blood and spatters under the pot sink, along with feces and urine scattered in more than a dozen places throughout the kitchen.

There was a third rat, this one alive and struggling in a trap next to the tilt fryer, and a dead mouse in the main ration room that had been there for roughly three days, the email reads.

"The situation here is NOT good," writes the sender.

"Anything that was cleaned yesterday has now got to be considered contaminated."

CBC News has obtained internal emails describing a rat infestation at the Royal Military College cafeteria in Kingston, Ontario. RMC says the infestation is over, but other problems persist.

The message was included in 99 pages of internal emails obtained by CBC through access-to-information legislation.

They reveal details of a rat infestation last summer and outline ongoing complaints about the quality of the food being offered to cadets, including reports of mould, undercooked meat and insects in the salad.

The issues come after the kitchen underwent a $27 million investment to increase environmental protections, provide a safer working environment and improve food quality in 2021.

Maj. Cindy McLeod, RMC's acting director of support services, said the college responded to the rodents by temporarily shutting down the dining hall and calling in a pest control company.

In response to complaints about the food, she said officials welcome the feedback and are "trying our very best to do better."

Do you know how you deal with termite infestations down South? You tarp over the whole building and gas them ou of existence. After the gas has dissipated, you go in and clean all surfaces.

Just a suggestion ....
