    Role of EPs in the CF

    Just following on the OP's question out of curiosity, does the CF even recruit RCPSC emergency physicians?  And if they did, would they be in the general medical officer stream or specialist MO stream?  It's sounding like they'd be in the GMO stream and employed as such but I'd think some of...

    OPP Charges Former Canadian Forces Medical Officer with Practicing Medicine with

    I can feel a bit of sympathy for the guy, he clearly has a personality disorder and other mental health issues.  Qualifications-wise, there would've been no reason not to have issued him a license to practice since he had passed all his exams and was fully qualified as a doctor if it wasn't for...

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    Why are we spending money on this again?  The two look exactly the same unless you went right up and looked under a magnifying glass..  :(

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    So I finally had a chance to read the CANFORGEN on the 'evolution of CA officer ranks.' Anybody know how the inclusion of the Vimy Star and the alteration to the pips for OCdt to Colonel ranks will look like?  Is this a permanent thing or just to recognize the centennial of vimy ridge for the year?

    Reserve Pension- Merged

    Thanks that helps a lot actually!  I saw that post previously on the formulas but started to get confused when they referred to other formulas in paragraph 14.2(b) so wasn't sure if there was an interest calculation on the top-up.  Glad there isn't. Hopefully this mess with all the reserve...

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    Thanks for the pdf, that answers my question about junior and senior officer ranks which appear to be staying the same (darn.. I do have to memorize the 'new' army rank insignias after all!) The marketing spin put on all this would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad.. especially since they're...

    Reserve Pension- Merged

    I've read through the majority of this thread and also the CF pension website but haven't found a specific answer to my question.  Hopefully those that have gone through the process can give a quick and easy answer on how top-up's work. For those members that only need to top-up (ie don't need...

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    Oh my apologies, didn't realize.. my mistake! My question was more directed at whether the braids were returning for junior and senior officers of the CA as well since the quote from the article didn't seem to make it specific to only general officers?

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    Just curious but according to this article: 'The Conservatives also ordered the removal of gold braid bands on officers’ tunic cuffs. The army is reversing that decision. “The sleeve braid will be restored to same braid as before 2013,” Magill said.' Are they just referring to General...

    Domestic Terrorism/Public Attacks on CAF Personnel

    I just wanted to note that with all the talk about immigration and certain types of immigrants being responsible for these issues earlier in this thread, that both of these incidents were caused by Canadians, born and bred, here in Canada... Let the xenophobia begin??  Whether we like it or...

    Two Canadian warships collide during exercise manoeuvres en route to Hawaii

    So HMCS ALGONQUIN is obviously out of commission but is PRO the only Canadian ship representing the RCN at the Sydney IFR then I'm assuming?

    'It's time to consolidate NDHQ' & 'DND to take-over Nortel Campus' (Merged threads)

    Did a search and didn't find a more recent thread.  Looks like more delays and potential cost overruns.  Can DND get anything right in the procurement/project management world?  ??? http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/dnd-may-abandon-1b-move-to-former-nortel-site-because-of-surveillance-bugs-1.1477766...

    Out of curiousity, at what point does a CIC officer reach the OFP for their officer classification?  After the CIC occupational course I would assume?  Or is there a specific point?  Cheers.

    Helicopter goes down after rescuing stranded hunters

    Thanks, CTV just updated the story and it now also says private helicopter. Mods, can we edit the subject to take out the word 'Military' to avoid confusion?

    The "Nursing Officer" Merged Thread

    Hmm.. Does this end up being a consideration for NO's being posted to Quebec then?  I would think that if they can't get their Quebec license this would become an issue for NO's maintaining their clinical skills?
