    Oh, it's still there!  No sign of it closing, either (despite the wet status of the area). :nod:

    Ontario Election

    Kathleen Wynn is an MPP, and therefore was elected.  The Premier, like the Prime Minister, is never elected except as an MPP. That said, I have a feeling there will be an early election.  It is a minority government...

    Queen's Diamond Jubilee Super Thread

    I like the idea of a bar on the QDJM for military issue.  I see a problem with this though: Let's take the no bar scenario:  Cpl Bloggins is awarded a QDJM from his local MP for his stellar work in the community (whatever it might be).  Let's say his CoC wants to award him one for being  the...

    Ontario Award for Paramedic Bravery Act

    Here is a link to the official order of precedence.  Notice that provincial awards are included, but only near the end: http://www.gg.ca/document.aspx?id=71 The Ontario Police and Firefighters' bravery medals are included, and I think it likely that the Paramedic version will join them...

    Can I realistically be a reservist?

    There are plenty of police officers that are also reservists!  I'm sure a search of this site will reveal more info. Shift work means you won't be able to make all training opportunities during your career, but that doesn't keep you from contributing to your unit, and having a rewarding career...

    Questions about joining the Reserves

    arushbhai, Tor Scots are based in Etobicoke, but also have a presence in Mississauga. Those who live in Mississauga parade there, though usually only after finishing their infantry training.  Until then, it's Etobicoke (and wherever your courses take place).  Talk to the recruiter to get...

    When can poppies be worn daily?

    In Ontario, the Lieutenant Governor hosted a ceremony/reception titled “ Presentation of the first poppy” earlier today.  As far as I know, such an event marks the time when others may begin to wear a poppy.

    Kilts and pants?

    Nope, The unit issues the kilt, and the fact that the tunic is "cut away", means that you couldn't wear issued pants even if you aquired some.  That would look pretty silly. Closest thing is a set of trews, but as far as I know, most units do not issue (or wear) them for parades.  D

    Military and Facebook

    I think it's up to you and your comfort level.  Nothing wrong with declining, IMO. I usually accept the invite (don't realy seek them), but in doing so, I place them in a special list with particular privacy settings.  The troops see only what I'm comfortable showing them.
