    A Dream Navy?

    To add on to that, the Orca only requires 4 people to sail. The rest are students with their Course Training Officer. And like N. McKay said, the tugs, barges, fireboats, tenders, ect are run by the Canadian Forces Fleet Auxiliary. Not 100% sure on this, but if I remember correctly the Dive...

    A Dream Navy?

    Didn't hear any rumbling at all but I would support a move like this. I mean no offense to the people that work on the ship, but in the modern age of computers and semi-reliable telephone communications, is there really a requirement to bring the support staff to sea? What is done on ship that...

    A Dream Navy?

    You are right, my apologies for completely missing this. I will still stand by my submarine selection as it does have the IDAS (however I am sure we could also get a system working on the Soryu though), mine laying capability, and with more vessels for the same amount of crew we can spread out...

    MP's jurisdiction outside DND bases

    As I was informed by someone, a lot of MPs have the authority to enforce the Highway Traffic Act of their province anywhere, even while in transit. One thing to note here is that not everything that you do wrong falls under the same Codes. There is the Criminal Code of Canada, Highway Traffic...

    Medical First Responder Course

    You won't find any of the military courses on the St-John's Ambulance website. The military runs it's own courses with it's own instructors by the St-John's ambulance curriculum and to their standard and is recognized by them but they do not administer them. Your best bet is to talk to your...

    I hate peeing in cups, I have a question

    Well I didn't have to do one at BMQ, but depending on your trade or situation you will eventually have to produce more. If for example you are in an aircrew trade you will be peeing every year or two for your medical, every 5 I believe for others. If they decide to do random drug screening (or...

    Heres one for a Recruiter

    Not a lawyer If that is in fact the exact wording then I understand that as meaning that he use a firearm in the performance of his duties in the Canadian Forces. Now issue would be, as Stacked said, why does he have such a prohibition, if he has been convicted of a crime, and since we are...
