The uniforms are on there.
RedcapCrusader, Thanks for chiming in on tue discussion.
I find if odd that one would have to file a FOIA request to look up a law. I have seen where CADPAT as in tue actual pattern is copyrighted. You would think in the same documents they would state that all material items should mot be allowed for sale in the public sector but they don't. It just says that you need an agreement with the copyright holder to use the pattern.
There is also section 419 of the criminal code (I think) that said people are not to have possession of controlled items with out permission. How ever there doesn't seem to be an easy access able list of the actual controlled items
there is also mention that certain controlled items are fine fir use with in Canada however are not allowed to me exported.
There is also reference to surplus sales contracts on the government buy and sell site that say unless it was part of the contract any cadpat clothing should be return as it was not the intention to be sold. It didn't say it was a controlled item just that it was the policy of that contract not to include any cadpat clothing. Note the one I read only clothing and it didn't not mention other cadpat items is packs, vests, camp screens etc.
I have also seen reference to a post which said that the controlled part was a internal military police and control and not a section 419 controlled item.
I understand its a hot topic which is very near and deer to some peoples hearts and I have respect for that I am just looking to see there is a public document (not am internal military only) with lists the controlled items, it hard for people to follow the laws when you can read them.
thanks all for the comments and the links its very nice to see all points of view.
