    Here’s What To Do If A Border Guard Wants To Search Your Phone

    FYI, in case anyone was wondering about it, the case law establishing the authority for BSO's to examine without warrant, is R. v SIMMONS.  https://scc-csc.lexum.com/scc-csc/scc-csc/en/item/377/index.do The MTP's to take away from this are as follows: 1. No reasonable expectation of privacy...

    Walts, posers & wannabes (merged)

    Ugh..... I've heard about this guy before..... Nothing good either..... What's sad is how on the CF Facebook page the number of idiots actually DEFENDING this clown for LYING about his service.....

    Temporary Military ID in Las Vegas

    That's Odd that you are no longer considered a resident of wherever you came from. I know that most students who go away for school are not usually subjected to all the requirements of changing addresses as it is considered a "Temporary" move, much the same as a contract job with the CF PRes...

    The Great Gun Control Debate

    I feel like an RPAL and several weeks of training should be required and a good start. In addition, the same Psych testing that we require of Law enforcement might not be a bad idea as well. There may still be incidents, but I feel like that would be an effective risk mitigation, and...

    Hackers Remotely Kill a Jeep on the Highway—With Me in It

    I can see new selling points and add-ons being things like the vehicle now has firewall protection or comes with a free year subcription to Norton anti-virus..... It's concerning though that we're getting to this point with our cars... Not surprising given the technology on board, but still...

    The Great Gun Control Debate

    Well that may be true, I have far greater concern that ALL armed LE agencies are not permitted to carry off duty, and even more concerned that there are so many wanting to prevent other LE agencies from carrying a duty firearm. I feel like a good first hurdle would be to get transit, school...

    What keeps or kept you in the CAF?

    I'm at the point after 16 years (PRES) where it's time to finally hang up my hat. Without going into detail, it's simply time. However, I have no regrets, and looks fondly on all the time I've spent in uniform. It's simply time to wear a different one and protect Canadians in a different way...

    The Great Gun Control Debate

    ^This. We cant even get Law Enforcement officers to be allowed to carry off duty... Heck, we cant even get all sworn law enforcement officers allowed to carry ON DUTY! There is a greater likelihood of the CF adopting a pet unicorn than there is, of this sort of thing ever taking flight here in...

    "Toronto police officer charged in Sammy Yatim shooting"

    IIRC it wasn't just a screwdriver, but one which had been sharpened for the express purpose of being able to go through soft body armor.... (Unless this was another shooting with similar circumstances....) As far as the PC in Toronto goes, he is innocent until proven guilty. It's a terrible...

    Question re uniform.

    Whenever I do/did the BFT as of late, I would wear long compression shorts. Cut down on the thigh chafe and generally made things more comfortable for me... If they dont see it, you're usually alright. But the T-shirt thing (especially on a recruit course) is spot on.

    Civilians complaining about Police/Emergency Services' Pay

    I would not want to see any large scale cutback of fire services... Lord knows I appreciate the concept of "Paid for what we may have to do" More Amb's are needed, but it has to be a multi-faceted approach incorporating other elements of the health care system as well. My EMS buddies tell me...

    Police fitness

    :ditto: Google the police PIN test if you're interested in what LE looks for in fitness training.... As stated, HRPS TRU is not going to post much stuff wrt trg in the public eye.  If you want to get to that level look at the police PREP test... Now imagine you have to complete that test in...
