    There are a good number of housing options - all full with a waiting list.

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    To be fair, it’s not the approach (3 engine or OEI) that we worry about - it‘s what might happen if we end up having to go-around. Three engine asymmetric go-arounds with any sort of rudder issue is not a good day.

    To be fair - RHUs are not costed at industry standard. 4 bedroom Q at Comox is close to $1k/month. That would be around $3k on the street. We (DND, CFHA) have built 4 new apartment buildings - each with 8 x 2 bedroom apartments. Only helps a niche group of troopies posted to QQ.

    Army Reserves to conduct beach assault and raid exercise around CFB Comox

    All of them… They‘re certainly not counting the ships company of 2xFFH and 2x ORCA class in that number.

    Air Operations Officer (AOO)

    Sqns will need to deal with the loss of PYs in their flying cadre. The OpsO Major line number will no longer be a flyer (as it is currently at all flying Sqns). Same goes for 2-3 Captain flying positions - those line numbers will get given to the AOO CM. I’m already seeing it at the Wing...

    Air Operations Officer (AOO)

    To be fair - duty ops is a valid secondary duty for aircrew. Air Ops O’s are takimg over line numbers at the WOC, CAOC, plans, etc. At the line Sqn, they will eventually be your Sqn Ops cell - replacing the aircrew without offset. Sqn’s will lose a flying Major position, and up to 2x Captains.

    CT TRANSFER QUESTION

    Have you contacted the CT cell at DMCPG-5? They need to track your file and send you to CFRC for ROTP.

    Eerie timing no doubt. Funny how nobody in the MSM seeks actual SME input from these anonymous sources found on army.ca. That story could have been written a year ago.

    Is it possible to be accepted to the CAF with undiagnosed depression?

    Certain CAF members are not permitted to use “natural health products“ - St John‘s Wort is on the list of “no”. What trade are you considering?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    In all seriousness - if inappropriate jokes/comments are being investigated by a civilian police agency - will there even be a charge laid? Is it against the CCC?

    So will that be investigated by the civilian courts?
