    MPO vs CivPol Commissioned Officer

    More likely is paid-duties, since this is the first year that has been included for inclusion on to the sunshine list.

    Actually headphones are ok in certain circumstances (like riding transit IIRC), that came around 2012, just before I got out.

    Wearing Uniform in Public (merged)

    If you are going to be on a course, your course staff, will clearly outline when, where and how you can wear your uniform in public, with a heavy emphasis you wear civilian clothes, so you don't make any mistakes, like drinking a coffee while walking down the street without headdress (as I have...

    Guide to fitness, bodybuilding and weightloss.

    This is getting locked for 2 reasons. 1) There is already a plethora of threads (as MM pointed out) about workout programs that are useful for the CAF, in fact there is even a sub-forum dedicated to it. 2) We kinda sorta have this thing about people giving out advice and opinion on topics...

    Time to Arm Cenotaph Guard? (split from Domestic Terrorism)

    Simple they get the same line that Brinks et al get in their training, the firearm is for personal protection (and possible protection of those in the immediate vicinity such as a partner or bank employee) only. Getting involved in anything beyond that liability is on yourself. For example the...

    Time to Arm Cenotaph Guard? (split from Domestic Terrorism)

    Pretty sure on that point Jed is referring to the fact there is quite a vocal segment of the population that has a very extreme dislike for anyone (including LEOs) to be armed with anything more potent than a wiffle bat.  It would be seen to be unPC by this group to have soldiers performing...

    Time to Arm Cenotaph Guard? (split from Domestic Terrorism)

    The first point yes, the second two, not always. For example when I worked with Brinks, many "runs" involved simply the messenger (person carrying the money/valubles) and the driver. With Brinks drivers never leave the vehicle, which meant the messenger would be by themselves, and depending on...

    Walts, posers & wannabes (merged)

    No I was referring to the Privacy Act (In fact I quoted from it) the Privacy Act deals with government institutions (which the CAF is and therefore is the applicable legislation), PIPEDA deals with private companies. Don't confuse the two they are two SEPARATE acts...

    Time to Arm Cenotaph Guard? (split from Domestic Terrorism)

    Just want to point out to those bringing up using a LE use of force response model, and having that + other defensive tools as reasons why our sentry's can't be armed, well there are probably a couple of thousand armed security (mostly doing armoured transport), and the only tool they get issued...

    Previous drug use question 2002 - 2018 [Merged]

    Merged with prior drug use thread Amrydreamin, read this entire thread, including the posts I made regarding how long you have to wait.  And no I will not unlock this, or allow you to post any other topics in this regard. Also don't even think of PM'ing me to reconsider or answer questions...

    You might want to actually READ the Privacy Act first, since it is obvious you haven't, here is the link and appropriate section to make it easier for you. http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/p-21/page-3.html#h-6 Hmmm, I fail to see where a clerk or even a Chief Clerk of a unit can just...
