Someone needs to be asking these questions: How friggin big is the CFJSR now? 

We are the largest 1st line Unit in Canada.  ;)

(But, Gagetown holds 8800 sets of clothing docs for pers, so is larger than Kingston).

Edited to add: Me thinks Kingston may be counting all those CTC folks in their numbers as LFDTS ... too bad that tonne of people and all those schools and clothing docs are actually situated in and supported by Gagetown [if that is how they are bumping their numbers so large].

Just got confirmation from base commander's staff - reg,res, and civ - including all lodger units - 8000 is almost bang on.

They should cross-reference with PeopleSoft - because the number there is about 2K less.  and Ottawa, Halifax, and others are all larger according to the same system.

Or, as Simian Turner said, they're counting things like CFC Toronto, CMR St Jean, CFLS Ottawa and others that are not dependencies of Kingston.

They probably have CFC and CFLS etc on the list because of CDA. If you look at the Gagetown site they list CFSCE under CTC, and if I'm not mistaken CFSMI shows up under Borden ... I suppose it all depends on the responsibilities of the org doing the counting.

Them, and all those people actually located at:

CTC HQ;
Tac School;
School of Foot;
Arty School;
Armd School; and
CFSME (all located in Gagetown);

CFSEME (located in Borden); and

Land Advanced Warfare (CPC) located in Trenton etc etc

under their Land Forces Doctrine & Training System numbers ...



Why, it's just like manipulating statistics ... until someone attempts to muster them all on the parade square in Kingston to find out they aren't actually there. Wonder if that would be worth a couple thousand AWOL charges?  :blotto:

I'm confused - are we supposed to hate Kingston now or are we working to defend it?  :blotto:

Trying to figure out how many multitudes would actually show up on a mandatory parade in Kingston for "all" claimed Units.

How does such a small base health centre serve so many troops with so few resources - no lab, no X-ray/DI, very small Mental Health clinic.  This must be the healthiest bunch of troops - they never get injured or ill?

Poorly. Although they do have X-Ray, just not sure how often its open.

This started out about a lack of blood donors, dealt with, no one cares.

Tangented off to some sort of dick measuring contest about how many people are in Kingston. Again, who really cares?

No more bandwidth to be wasted on this.
