    Fallen Comrades (serving Canadian military)

    WO Glenn Whitten (The RCR) died last Saturday in Trenton. I have fond memories of Glenn's quiet, hard-working and pleasant character when we served together in the Recce Platoon of 3 RCR in the early 90s. Godspeed, Glenn.  Sympathies to Tracey, Danielle and Leah...

    Seeking Divorce Lawyer Referral in Ottawa

    I paid well over 50K for my divorce.  It was worth every penny to ensure that my rights were protected, that I was secure in the knowledge that my children would be well taken-care of, and that I'd saved money in the long run. In addition, costs are usually only awarded if the other party is...

    Seeking Divorce Lawyer Referral in Ottawa

    I was going to say something inflammatory in response to opcougar's post, but I took a breath.  That said, the aphorism that, "a man who represents himself in court has a fool for a lawyer" is true in the vast majority of cases. Judges, almost universally, detest self-reps. Please, OP - for...

    Creating a canteen

    We may be on the verge of having a violent agreement.  :) I agree that unit funds, and the one to which I referred in particular, are governed by a number of policies (CFMWS/PSP being one of them) but are operated by unit fund committees.  In our case, PSP did not hold the funds.  Our unit had...

    Creating a canteen

    Why isn't it a unit fund, or a proper means of raising money for the unit fund? PSP may issue the over-riding policy about expenditures and accountability, but our unit fund committee (of which I was a member, along with fair representation from across the spectrum of ranks) decided how the...

    Creating a canteen

    Here's how my old unit (un-named of course), got around the PSP/CFMWS bull#^$t. We had weekly barbecues with the responsibility for its conduct (buying suppies, cooking and clean-up) assigned to the sub-units on a monthly basis. Leftover supplies were stored in the QM, in a fridge/freezer...

    I suppose you get a general officer who's insufficiently "general".

    Building Better Officers (merged)

    Shared with the usual caveats: http://www.cnas.org/files/documents/publications/CNAS_BuildingBetterGenerals_0.pdf I must admit that I've only skimmed the paper, but found the notion of "tracking" officers to either operational or enterprise appointments an intriguing one.
