    Advice on RMC/am I good enough?

    My best advice is to start studying for the aptitude test (CFAT)... it's going to have significant weight on how your application is compared. There is a practice test on Forces.ca, use it as a guide for what to study, you're going to want to score close to perfect to get proceesed for Pilot...

    Well, when the U.S. COVID mortality data is age adjusted, there is arguably little difference in outcomes between the high and low vaccination states when it comes to deaths attributed to COVID. Could it be that Florida had a higher COVID death rate mainly because of the high percent of elderly...

    All of these questions can be answered during your interview. Only recruiting staff can see how many positions are available and how many applicants have applied. As for how competitive your file is, your CFAT score will be a major determinant.

    The LPC were not doing so hot for the first half of the last federal election. There were a lot of questions on why the election was even necessary. Then something turned public sentiment around in the final weeks... in February 2022, the PM referred to the election as a referendum on vaccine...

    Perhaps even more relevant to this thread is that obesity has long been known to be associated with significantly increased risk of hospitalization after being infected with COVID19. This was no surprise to anyone, though, as being overweight/obese lowers people's immunity in general and makes...

    Patrol Dress

    Well, best course of action may be to consult with the RSM. If others in your unit already wear patrols, then there "should" be some sort of direction that has already been provided on proper wear, such as in Regimental Standing Orders.

    Patrol Dress

    You'll probably want to start reading the Canadian Army Dress Instructions, published somewhat recently. Patrol Dress is also referred to as 1C (Ceremonial Patrol Dress) and 1D (Undress). https://www.canada.ca/en/army/services/ca-dress-and-ceremonial.html#chapter5 As Remius suggested, you...

    I find it interesting that the case was dismissed not because it was found to be baseless but because the plaintiffs were going after a small media outlet rather than their employer and larger media outlets like the CBC, who had done more harm... so they should be going after the big fish? From...

    Not even when employers take unprecedented action to curtail human rights. That doesn't even warrant a raised hand followed by a concern. Got it. As an aside, back near the start of the pandemic I ran a recruiting centre and was the first to physically close our doors to not allow the public to...

    As a disucussion point, the following study was upheld in the spring as strong evidence to maintain the then ongoing policies of vaccine mandates and passports across the country. If you read it, though, you will find that it is based off of a mathematical model using hypothetical transmission...

    And you never answered any of my questions. I understand that this is the policy, there is no explanation as to why though. Is there significant evidence that this seasons flu vaccines are strongly effective against transmission of the currently spreading variants? Or are you just here to...

    This is based off a false assumption that unvaccinated individuals pose some sort of greater risk of trnasmission than those who are vaccinated. There was never strong evidence of this and no competent health authority has been suggesting this for quite some time. This is why when speaking of...

    If you ask me, I would not discount any of the measures you just mentioned as never warranting implementation. Determination, in my opinion, should be based off of risk/impact assessments. The more threat posed by the virus, the more likely such measures may be warranted. After the first few...

    I never said that you offered a medical opinion, but your questions seem to be based on a false belief that unvaccinated individuals pose a signifcantly greater threat to others when it comes to transmission than those who are vaccinated. This is not the case and there was never actually stronv...

    The evidence, even at the time, didn't suggest the vaccines offered significant protect against virus transmission... so why would they be putting others at increased risk? When these mandates came into effect, their was no credible studies held up as proof that they were likely to have a...

    Note: edited for tone and brevity While your points about fighting fake news don't seem to be pointing directly at me, the breadth/generality of the points seem to infer that what I have said could be labelled as "fake news". Here are some counter arguments: 1. Risks associated with COVID19...

    The vaccine mandates were advertised as a way to ensure a healthy workplace, how they would do that despite significant evidence even a year ago that they were not particularly effective at preventing transmission is beyond me (check out some of my posts from Fall 2021 for some relevant studies...

    Agreed, levels of risk aversion varies between cultures and people. That is why I took offense to your dismissal of other people's concerns. I also agree that there is likely hesitation on the government from quickly changing course due to political ramifications. The federal travel and...

    The study you posted clearly states that "the risk of myocarditis after vaccination is higher in younger men, particularly after a second dose of the mRNA-1273 vaccine." You never answered any of my questions though. Are you suggesting that the study you posted is evidence that the Danish...
