Liaison office finally got back to me.
Since engineering is not available at a distance directly through DCS, I can actually apply for fulltime engineering studies, at a non-subsidized rate, through DCS.
This means that I would remain within the DCS while attending the engineering...
I'm currently a Cpl in the reserves.
I'm finishing off a Civil Engineering Technology diploma at Humber as well as working on a B.Sc part-time through the division of continuing studies at RMC.
Upon completing my diploma I wish to move onto university to complete a B.Eng.
I have some...
At the same time, it's funny how many things haven't changed much at all.
Many moons ago my mother was a member of the LSSR then later the service battalion in Thunder Bay. It was so uncommon for women to join the military that there was a newspaper article on her when she got on a plane to...
I think a lot of people would be surprised to hear (or not surprised at all) that half the students in a class I took thought Canadians were fighting in Iraq.

Luckily, very very few of them ever figured out I was a member of the CF, might have been bad.
Luckily, the actual professor held a somewhat non-biased stance (She was...
I have to agree.
BC has a very large coastline and a large population.
I don't believe Vancouver is going to get attacked anytime soon, but I think it makes sense to have a battalion there. If Canada were to ever be attacked, it's coasts would provide a good means to land troops.
At the same...
I completely agree with your last post.
Sadly, violence is a crucial and required means of removing the taliban. We need to remove their influence with force as much as possible before an ideology will be able to grow. I believe the development of an ideology, such as the movement you brought...
I see this as great news.
Victory in Afghanistan, complete victory, where a democratic government is able to maintain the country with stability, is a long way away. To achieve this aim, in many ways an ideology within the country needs to be developed so that the government and its citizens...
One of my teachers is a P Eng Civil Engineer from UofT who worked on the project to determine how the structures failed.
It all came down the steel heating beyond its elastic limit and contractors not using specified materials.
I don't see much room for a conspiracy.
