    Medical Release ( merged )

    Members will be offered a new contract should their current one expire regardless of where they are in the process of medical release. I was a platoon Cmd for an IPSC and delivered new TOS all the time to people who were in the medical release process.

    TCAT-PCAT info and questions ( merged )

    Yes, a 4th TCAT can exist. It is just a very rare thing. Completely situation dependant.

    RCN to introduce new Conduct Policy and new Alcohol Policy

    During my first stint in the CAF in the early 90's, I was an Air Force Transportation Officer. This was before email (actually, before we even really had computers). Going to the Officer's Mess for lunch and having a beer (and I mean just one) and having discussions with fellow officers more...

    More and more funnies.. vol: something...

    I tried searching for a new lighter on eBay, but gave up as they only had 3500 matches.

    Transition Group (Previously JPSU and DCSM)

    I agree. My point is that it is the medical system that is the ones who are supposed to work on the member's medical condition. JPSU staff are very, very good at being responsive to member's needs. But when a member "goes off the rails" (and it is almost always due to a mental health issue), it...

    Transition Group (Previously JPSU and DCSM)

    Let's get something perfectly clear here. JPSU staff are NOT medical personnel! They deal with the administration of personnel posted to them.  Fingers continue to be pointed to JPSU for failing our sailors/soldiers/airmen; but why are those fingers not being pointed to the actual medical...

    VAdm Norman - Supply Ship contract: Legal fight

    And consider the source. CBC was also the one to officially report that HMCS WINNIPEG hit an American fishing vessel. This being while the ship was tied up alongside the jetty.  It's ok for all of us to share what the media is "reporting" but I will believe none of it until we get something...

    Medical Chits

    The "P" in PCAT stands for Permanent. In other words, it does not expire. The only way that it can change is if there was some miraculous, positive change in the member's medical situation.

    GPS - Trust / Don't Trust

    Just bought the Garmin U2Nav. Useless. The streets have no names and I still haven't found what I am looking for.

    The Better Approach

    Wording and tone of voice is very important. Remember, diplomacy is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a manner that they look forward to the trip. And end your "brutally honest" presentation with something positive, like that you have faith in the individual. Always leave on a...

    Application - How long does it take? (Merged)

    They probably close at that time so that they can actually do the paperwork for individuals like yourself without contant interruptions; otherwise files would take that much longer to process.  Think about it. If they see people all day, when are they supposed to do the actual paperwork and...

    Why have CANEX? (Split fm "Up to 1500 military housing units ...")

    And during my time in Goose Bay early 90s, the CANEX was pretty much it. I don't know what we would have done without it.
