    Armouries

    Not a comment on what you are up to (since I don't really know), but to throw a bit of a cloud over your list, best as I can tell, the Mulcaster St. armory (#5) isn't, and hasn't been since the late '40s. It has been a lot of things but is current the Grey and Simcoe Foresters Regumental...

    Sick Leave

    I would suspect the colleges would say that is none of their business and outside of their mandate. Back when the earth was still cooling, I attended a 'law enforcement' program at a community college. Back then there was virtually no one planning on private security (it wasn't much an...

    Helicopters start rescue efforts after landslide traps hundreds on B.C. highway

    No kidding. Politicians are loath to spend money on things that don't have a calculated 'vote benefit'. Spending money on equipment stores (remember PPE stockpiles?) or adequate personnel or systems to adequately surge always fail in the face of the thousand other things that researchers and...

    Civilianizing the Military Justice System: Throwing out the baby with the bathwater or not?

    Agree. Legislative tweaking aside, the big nut would be funding.

    Trudeau U.S. visit delivers wake-up call about new North American reality

    Not an argument, just an attempt at an answer: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/constitution-unit/what-uk-constitution/what-uk-constitution https://about-britain.com/institutions/constitution.htm There is no document or piece of legislation that other laws are judged against. The underlying premise is...

    Civilianizing the Military Justice System: Throwing out the baby with the bathwater or not?

    Interesting. I won't comment on the applicability of the Criminal Code to CAF personnel out-of-country or the ability of Canadian civilian police to enforce, as there might be legislation that I'm not familiar with. Regarding turning policing of CAF personnel and property over to local law...

    Sick Leave

    I want to clarify my earlier post that I'm not questioning or begrudging the response to stress/sick leave for employees who need it; I was simply commenting on the apparent recent high numbers. It is true that social and employer response in days gone by was in the 'suck it up' category, but...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    Agree. It might be different in the CF medical community, where one would think they are more tuned to occupational stress. In the civilian world, it is often the individual's GP who makes that assessment, and their experience might not be extensive. The employer does have the ability to ask...

    Comox base rocked by explosion

    Assuming is was a gas leak - and it certainly looks like one - given enough time, the entire 'air space' inside can reach combustion concentrations. Given a source of ignition (furnace starting, even a light switch turned on) the air essentially explodes simultaneously.

    Trudeau U.S. visit delivers wake-up call about new North American reality

    I remember reading somewhere a while back what a typical smartphone would cost if is was built in NA with our labour and input costs. I forget the figure but it paled the cost of the latest-at-the-time Iphone by a significant margin. Regardless of source, people seem to need to latest and...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    Most major police services are the same. I have heard the number off on extended leave with my former service and recall being quite astounded. In addition to the ones that are on leave, there are also those who are working, but with accommodations that make me scratch my head (or scream). No...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    I had the same thought. How does an "up to" sentence work in the military context? In the civilian justice system, sentences are definitive, although actual incarceration periods are typically shorter.

    6 Jan 2020 U.S. Events (Split from A Deeply Fractured US)

    No kidding. How many convictions inside ten months. In Ontario, and probably many other Canadian jurisdictions, we'd still be trying schedule dates.
