I seem to recall that during my time with 1 RCR (when they were still in in London Ontario) that we were told to not wear our jump smocks for a time because the unit had received complaints as the look was too "aggressive". I suspect that the complaints came from the UWO as we use to also ...

As for the issues pertaining to the FN, I am FN and can see the BS that has happened on both sides quite clearly and can only be thankful that my family had separated themselves from the reserve way of l...

Gunnair, I seem to recall that for myself during the mid eighties the general policy was we reported to work and the WO would decide if we were sick enough to go to the MIR.

The last 15 years that I spent in the Canadian Forces we have been allowed to call in for a sick day, although locally you may be required to also report to the local medical facility. By and large though you would be taken at your word and allow...

If you got a laugh out of Regina because it sounds like vagina you should also get one out of "Dildo", "Come By Chance" and "Blow Me Down" in Newfoundland. There are also a few other humorous place names such as: Orgasm, Pennsylvania, USA Cockburn, Western Australia Twa...

Seen, and understood that things change just the optics are not good for the powers that be to do this approx half way through a ROTO and just after giving themselves a pay raise. Looks like they are dropping everyone down a notch or two on the scale.

I am curious if he will be on the hook for child support if one of his attackers shows up pregnant. In the mean time kudos to him for coming forward I can't imagine how hard that would be.
