No.  Really!  Don't you know that members of the CF work 24 and 7, 52 weeks of the year.  They have no lives, but to answer your inquiries about joining the CF whenever you feel the urge to give them a call.  They can even post date your documents so that you can do other things. 

Use some common sense. 

The kid probably made a typo.

right  ::)

It's easy to be critical of other orgs, but the numbers alone speak for themselves, almost doubling the number of intakes over the past 4 years, with only a minimal increase in staff... My opinion is that more work needs to be done on the retention side :cdn:, and I am confident that CMP will have a news on how this will be addressed sometime in the New Year.

I was guessing time travel myself, but typo might explain it too.

How can your interview be completed if today is 14 Dec ???

The outline was likely copied and pasted. Ergo, the idea is that the interview will take place or will be completed on Dec. 17th. Are you just nit picking because you are bored? ;)

I think they do a great job considering how quickly things change within this particular organization.  8)

Amazing what you come up with if you search merit+list.

Cause i got it as well?

You're not sure if you're merit listed?  ???

Never mind, according to this:

I was not the one pointed out with that message but there are members like me doing their best to write in English while their mother language is French....
