Communities tend to use the the colloquial versions (which is fine). I think you’re starting to realize that using colloquialisms is okay and should not detract from the conversation.
CP-140 is not “a thing.

It is not foolish. It was a personal way to show you that you need to use context (which you cannot get from a single frame) in enforcing dress standards. Calling those “leadership failures” without knowing all the facts is immature.I think you're starting to realize I matched your foolish question (about dirt on parade boots...) with my own foolishness.
We have dress regs or we don’t. Time and place and common sense should always be considered...We enforced the regs. Beard, no beard. I don’t care one way or another on a professional level. If it’s in the dress regs we try to follow those rules. Same reason I won’t accept a civilian belt in DEUs or half assed tied knot tie or whatever. If the rules change for those things I’ll enforce them accordingly. Until then, using good judgement, we shouldn’t let things slide.
What are the valid reasons for not keeping up a PT routine?
I ask honestly, not trying to be a jerk. I understand that you can't go to the gym -- I haven't been to a gym since early March of 2020 -- but why shouldn't can't people still do jogging, rucking, pushups, air squats, and other such good things at home (or on streets around their home)? I believe even the strictest stay-at-home orders made allowances for outdoor exercise.
Especially from a CAF perspective I am missing why it is acceptable to let one's self go. I can understand cancelling the Force Testing because testing involves contact with others.
Ok, so is the issue with the ponytail the fact that it was too long or that it was over her shoulder in the picture? If it is the fact that it is over her shoulder in the picture, is it not possible that the PA involved told her to do it to drive home the fact that she is female and to show the new dress policy?
Those six pages were fun while they lasted.Let's simplify: a single hair standard, men and women.
Just so I’m following… did the pictures change? For the top one I see a SARTech with his sleeves pushed up… that’s been authorized for like 2 years now.Why would it matter if it's authorized or not? People just do what they want anyways...and the CAF Social Media folks post it not having a clue

Reminds me of a story I heard of guys coming back into KAF after a couple months of heavy fighting being jacked up by the Camp Sergeant Major for having beards.Solution? Before admonishing someone for dress, perhaps it’d be useful to understand the context behind the “why” someone may be out of dress and show leniency and flexibility when someone acts in good faith.
Speaking of the Militia
Watch Canadian soldiers march with weapons at Toronto Khalsa Day Parade Video Online, on GlobalNews.caglobalnews.ca
If they had done it without tac vests and marched normally, it probably wouldn't have been an issue. Although, it's not typically the type of parade you would have rifles on.A guy on my DP1 was part of that parade. Trying to explain why it looked bad was like talking to a brick wall.
I think, more correctly, some separate standards are imposed upon us in the names of diversity and inclusion. The intent is to broaden the appeal of the CAF to under-represented segments of society to meet certain recruiting targets established for political reasons so that the CAF is representative of the country it serves. While that's a laudable goal, it has never really been attained.Men, Women, Sikh, Muslim, Natives, etc. If we are all equal and expect to be treated equally, why do we insist on separate standards?
