CAF be like....WE GOT THIS!!!!!!CDS - we need to scale back and focus on reconstitution and training.
GoC - Full steam ahead!
Nah, in fixed wing fleets, everyone loves the Air Coffee Service Officers.
Are you referring to reaction, age, or demeanor?The 2 Flt Engineers I work with when I say that on Monday…
I do wonder when the situations were reversed, how many soldiers in Edmonton split thier PLD with soldiers in Pet?This possibly the best meme I've seen about this topic:

Just wait until they hit Black Gold in Deep River!!I do wonder when the situations were reversed, how many soldiers in Edmonton split thier PLD with soldiers in Pet?

Blame the troops for bad government policy... You secretly a Col working in NDHQ?I do wonder when the situations were reversed, how many soldiers in Edmonton split thier PLD with soldiers in Pet?
Whats that? Nailed it??
I have partied with the Bruce in more than one occasion, in more than one country.Me?...a Col?? That would have meant university, and 4 years of smoking dope and bad mouthing your country. Not me...
FTFY bud.One possible line of thinking is that this bandaid has to be ripped off so we may as well get it over with now.
I can't help but agree. I am also hopeful that enough people quit that
we arethe CAF is forced to do a total force reduction.

CFB Esquimalt spouses decry families effectively seeing pay cuts with new structure - Victoria NewsLong-awaited replacement aims to help lower ranks afford housingwww.vicnews.com
“It is crucial to understand that CFHD prioritizes those who require assistance the most in order that all CAF members are able to afford housing, regardless of where they are posted,”
This is clever messaging. Anyone higher than the rank of cpl who complains about losing money is being selfish and not 'for the troops'.
Lets keep in mind that the CAF, in no way, controls pay and allowance levels. That is set Department/Treasury Board level.@Griffon Great post, agree. Also, feel bad for BGen Tatersall (DGCB) who had to be the public face of that particular shit sandwich (which is apparently being called PAYCUTFORGEN). It's not like they were the ones that created the policy, just were the ones in the job when it came down from upon high, so are being quoted in the news.
Having said that, wished the RCN would take the same line with life safety orders and follow CAF direction and just remind people they need to be clean shaven. Lot of folks with big ass beards and goatees so no way they are all excused from duty watches or fire fighting. If they can follow unpopular orders on money they can stop trying to be popular by ignoring CAF orders from the CDS.
PM InboundI wish someone who has better Excel skills (and time) than I would make a spreadsheet comparing the gain/loss from HD vs PLD, by rank/spec. Have each Excel sheet be a rank, and list by location like below (amounts made up):
Esquimalt + 200
NCR + 500
Make it colour-coded so it's really easy to see how many ranks/specs get more or less. There will be a lot of "neutral" because folks either have too high of a salary, or the place never had PLD and don't have HD.
