    Canada doesn’t matter to the rest of the world - and it’s our own fault

    From the outset there were some support relationships that didn't make much sense and needed adjustment (still do IMHO). One example from 3 Div (that was replicated through the other Divs less 5 Div) was all PRes TAPV support relationships went through the 1 Svc Bn 2nd Line TAPV account, which...

    Canada doesn’t matter to the rest of the world - and it’s our own fault

    It is such a weird conundrum as the TAPV actually has one of the best methodologies for getting spare parts compared to all our other fleets. When a work order stock demand reaches the depot and they don't have the part it is automatically pegged against TEXTRON and they have contractual...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I suspect it is the ever driving need to make money for shareholders over DEI that drove Boeing into the trashheap. Although it is probably many factors that play into their issues. Ok article detailing some of the issues. As always to be taken with a grain salt NY Mag is pretty left of center...

    Updated Army Service Dress project

    Nah the main mod is Sigs WO and the rest are just stooges. Mod issues and Reddit go hand in hand as they can have pretty absolute power. I know Army.ca gets dunked on for bad moderation but IMHO that was in the past when we had a cabal of 3-4 crappy mods. At least with this forum you always...

    First Logistics Officer Course - Air (LOCA) at CFB Winnipeg

    Just state a preference for LSO. HR which is really adminstration is imbedded into both streams. As a leader you will need to know and understand adminstrative direction.

    Release Codes and US Visa Application

    I have no idea on the weight given to the various release items but in terms of grey area, all release items 5 are honourable releases so there is no real grey area. Release Items (4) When an officer or non-commissioned member is released, the notation on his record of service shall be as...

    Base closures?

    While infrastructure on most bases is old every time I visit Pet it feels like I am in the ghetto of CAF.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    That was me trying to figure out the Quebec renoclimate procedure which was linked to the Canada Greener Homes grant, took me forever to sludge through it with more than a few calls to both programs help desk. I am not the smartest apple but I get by, can't imagine the trouble some folks would have

    Redress of Grievance

    Yes exactly what I said, just not in QR&Oese. The ones I have dealt with have been emails to the CoC or through the Conflict Resolution folks to the IA, whichever was dealing with coording comms. It has been a few years though

    Redress of Grievance

    There is no real recourse, the options are all bad. They should be asking for an extension but if you deny it then it goes to the FA who has no time limit. You can ask them to push the file to the FA, but see above. Most people allow the IA to make a determination (they will usually work with...

    Element Change

    Yup, request under the BTL policy, no harm in asking. FWIW, I have seen a few of this succeed but most are denied. Most denied folks had very superficial reasons in their reasoning and truth be told having managed a BTL with a number of Log Os many of those requesting either couldn't pass...

    CAFTDTI Accomodation Interpretation

    You interpretation/methodology is generally what I have experienced right or wrong. The effort put forth to deny these claims in the first place and have mbrs do the extra bit is probably some MBA case study in inefficiency. If you (or your admin team) haven't done so yet, I would email this...

    Element Change

    There is an RCLS policy for changing DEU while on the BTL. Policy If you are fully trained then CANFORGEN 029/02 applies. I cut the considerations that are made when looking at DEU changes There are five (5) fundamental requirements and considerations that must be made when considering a DEU...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    We tried to replicate T&R and MIMs along with every other standalone material management practice into SAP/DRMIS rather than building things properly. We also implemented it piece meal with fin, MASIS and then big bang DRMIS (along with many other small modules along the way). Now we are...

    Office Production Paths - CFR or Bust?

    It is acceptable to bring it under that MPN:NCAGE as it is the same material in the system. Material isn't tracked by the NSN or MPN:NCAGE in the system. Those are just outward facing numbers that could be anything. Material in the system in reality pre & post MI is tracked by the Internal...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    They are probably missing that little booklet where you are supposed to annotate when you take stuff out of them! If they had that people would tots fill it out and staff would tots read and refill them In a strangely related nerd supply story, you know shit went down when a certain base...
