    Pension Transfer Value / Lump Sum Pymt [Merged]

    Hello, sorry if this has already been answered, but I tried to use the search function on the site but it was down at the time I wrote this. I recently released from the reserves, and I received information in regards to my pension. I was just looking to clarify something in terms of the two...

    US Election: 2016

    And there you go with the broad generalizations again. He has more policies than the ones you listed, and while they are abhorrent, it is silly to claim that every single person that thinks he is the better choice (out of a fairly lack luster group) of the GOP candidates agrees with everything...

    US Election: 2016

    While I think Trump is an ignoramus to the extreme, people can support him for reasons other than the ones you have stated. They can disagree with him on the more extreme positions, while agreeing with some of his others. Painting *all* of his supporters as racist is just lazy thinking.

    2016 Oregon Standoff/Occupation & related (split fm US Election: 2016)

    While I cannot speak for others, for me as long as the reasons for the action are legitimate then I do not care who is carrying it out. This leads into the debate of what is a "legitimate" reason for armed resistance against your government. In the US, as brought up by Chris, their pledge of...

    2016 Oregon Standoff/Occupation & related (split fm US Election: 2016)

    I would say it is too soon to say. There are some reports that these are outsiders from the county who are just trying to trigger a wider action across the US, but I am unsure where these reports came from nor do I know the motive behind the reports. It wouldn't be the first time the media has...

    2016 Oregon Standoff/Occupation & related (split fm US Election: 2016)

    1) My apologies, I misread what you posted about the media coverage. 2) I think even if this devolves into violence it would be too quick to call it terrorism. Many politically motivated protests turn violent, and I have yet to see terrorism charges be laid there either. 3) Oregon is an open...

    2016 Oregon Standoff/Occupation & related (split fm US Election: 2016)

    You're joking right? Treason? How about we take a closer look at that. In the US, the legal definition of Treason is as follows: Nowhere are these individuals waging war against the US, nor are they giving assistance to its enemies. End of discussion. And you say the media is covering this...

    Election 2015

    To be fair, it seems to me that a lot of the youth who voted in this election voted more so to remove Harper from office than for the "free credit card" of which you speak. I've been talking to a lot of my friends and colleagues in their early 20's, and the trend for their "reason to vote"...

    Election 2015

    And I wonder how many Liberal supporters are going to be aghast at winning a majority with 40% of the popular vote like they were with Harper? *cough* It's a rhetorical question Anyways, congrats to the Liberals. Not what I was hoping for, but alas democracy does not care about the wishes of a...

    Election 2015

    http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/election/what-the-conservatives-ndp-and-liberals-are-promising-to-spend-if-elected-1.2614562 Seems like the promises made by each party in this election has finally been tallied up... Looks like our debt is about to sky rocket if the Liberals get in (assuming...

    Election 2015

    Personally I hope so as well, even if it does mean that the party I support ends up losing this election. I am personally tired of hearing the typical excuses of "my vote doesn't matter" or "none of the major parties represent my interests" for not actually going out and voting. You always have...

    Election 2015

    None of the parties are very pro military nowadays to be honest. Sure, Harper likes to boast how he and his party supports the troops but we have their record too, and you see the lowest GDP expenditure since the beginning of WW2 along with a nice blemish of how they've handled Veteran's...

    The Khadr Thread

    Just thought I'd post this here as I haven't seen it posted yet: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/news/omar-khadr-offered-a-seat-in-mcmaster-class-by-professor-1.3072934 I can think of a good many hardworking students who could use the offer to the university before a person who...

    Training Cuts

    Basically what Zach says, it depends. I highly doubt that a Reg Force infantry soldier only shot 49 live rounds in a year though. That would mean they had shot their PWT-3 (a shoot they have to do every year to re-qualify on the C-7) without any rounds used for zeroing. This also means they...

    BMQ Reserves 2010 - 2017

    There is no more BMQ-L for infantry reservists. You go straight from your BMQ onto your DP1.1 then your DP1.2, I am unsure how long in total this makes the DP1 portion though, so I'll defer this to someone who actually knows. After course you train from September until November, one day a week...
