    1st posting -PMQ availability

    PMQ wait list isn’t going to move very much as we head into the winter. There are new one bedroom apartments that have just been built, plus other single quarters style RHUs on the Wing. If all else fails, you can join the rest of the Privates and 2Lts in the shacks. Talk to CFHA and then...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    In reality it’s pretty easy. LWOP while being processed release under 5f. We were discussing the way forward on this today. There is zero sympathy for those who wish to remain unvaccinated in the CAF - no grievance authority will support any redress attempts.

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    I suspect a lot of our differences are due to Provincial health orders. Comox is in BC - we follow what Bonnie Henry dictates. As a Mess, we have determined that if the bar taps are open, we fall under the “non-essential” activity and thus everyone must be vaccinated - we don’t distinguish...

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    I think Brihard already summed this up quite succinctly - but here’s my thoughts (definitely not telling you to shut up and obey). The Mess is sometimes used for official CAF functions outside of the private military club setting - like H&A ceremonies or Working Ground, under those...

    PaCE : Performance Appraisal and Competency system

    Concur - yet we’ve decided to go ”all-in” using this software? Readiness, CFTPO, leave and now career. EMAA is apparently dying soon - to be replaced by MM?

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    There is zero direction that states that. The CAF follows local provincial health orders - just like how we follow liquor license laws. If you attend the Mess in its capacity as a drinking establishment, you show your proof of vaccination. There’s no privacy laws being impacted here, you...

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    I have, I’m aware of the scarcity of DWAN terminals. This is a leadership challenge that will need to be overcome.

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    Everybody in the CAF will have some interaction under PaCE - as briefed by DMCPG on Wednesday.

    PaCE : Performance Appraisal and Competency system

    I attended multiple Teams briefs this past week on Manager roles and the mechanics of PaCE. I didn’t like the comments that we needed to transfer people in and out of their position numbers on MM to reflect their employment during the year. Deploy on Op Neon for 2 months, send Mbr to...

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    Equally troubling in this thread is those people who are stating they don’t have MM access or it doesn’t work for them. I heavily recommend you get that figured out ASAP, PaCE is here and everyone should have filled out their JD and MAP already. Less than a week until your first debrief session.

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    How so? Mess activities are considered non-essential and thus require double vaccination proof. Mess exec ask members for their passports or CAF vax cards - pretty simple. If you don’t want to show proof - you don’t attend mess activities.

    JUSTAS: the project to buy armed Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAVs

    CPDLC is exactly that - ATC chatting via text messages to aircrew. Most structured airspace (ie controlled) is vast with set routes in and out of congested airspace. Edmonton ACC controls the north (where presumably our UAS would operate) - separation is achieved through RVSM procedures and...

    JUSTAS: the project to buy armed Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAVs

    Maybe Ottawa for GCS since that’s where our Expeditionary HQ is located? Also all PED facilities are there too?

    Combat Boots policy 2018-CANFORGEN 127/18

    No details passed to me - my contact at 1 CAD mentioned it in passing when I was questioning the USAF safe to fly memo.

    Combat Boots policy 2018-CANFORGEN 127/18

    They seem decent enough. Been wearing them for a couple of months now. Zero cost to the user so that’s a plus…
