    Federal IT systems at risk of 'critical failure,' Trudeau warned in memo

    Why spend money on IT when SSC can add 25 more Directors? If they ever go looking for efficiency they can start there.

    Retro Pay & Allow 1Apr 2014 - 1Apr 2017

    Don't have that one yet, but I'm tracking and they only owe me around $160, this was around $1100. I'd try the pension office again, but the guy in my letter group never picks up the phone or returns messages...plus it's the holidays.  :subbies:

    Did anyone figure out what this payment is yet? I retired summer 2016, got my retro in July 17 and also received unexpected money this month.

    Army Communication & Information Systems Specialists (Sig Op, Lineman and LCIS Amalgamation)

    Just quit while you're behind. If you've been in that long then we probably know all the same people and you should also know I speak the truth. Your argument (if you can call a whiney rant an argument) is ludicrous...and just because I'm recently retired doesn't mean I don't know whats going on...

    Army Communication & Information Systems Specialists (Sig Op, Lineman and LCIS Amalgamation)

    Reel your neck in, step back and take a deep breath. You do less now as an LST then the old legacy LMN did and you expect to be paid more for it? Put 100 Linemen in a room and ask what the OSI model is; then watch 3 raise their hands (probably folks who worked in the private sector first)...

    Grandfathers Unit

    I pulled this book off of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada website: https://www.scribd.com/doc/211101248/RH-Roy-Seaforth-History There is a nominal roll at Annex K which doesn't appear to show your Grandfather. Perhaps he was attached as an emergency replacement and remained with the...

    Canadian Special Operations Force Command (CANSOFCOM)

    To further the analogy the Army would bring 12 chefs to prepare the pork, 6 chefs to make the salad, 2 redundant chefs to serve it and 5 visits by the Command chefs to ensure they can add their name to the medal roster, while CANSOF would pick their best chef, actually trust him to do the job...

    Pension Transfer Value / Lump Sum Pymt [Merged]

    Point to note ref the above statement. My Financial Advisor in concert with our Accountant didn't recommend to attempt to claim the money on this years taxes even if it did beat the deadline. This is due to the T4 not being cut until 2018 as income for 2017. Our FA said it's not impossible, but...

    Pension Transfer Value / Lump Sum Pymt [Merged]

    I released (Regs) in August of 2016 and finally received my severance approval letter 2 weeks ago, but I'm still waiting for the cheque to be mailed to my financial institution and deposited in my RRSPs. If it's any consolation (probably not) I also could not get in touch with the RPPO even...

    Not helping veterans could turn into national security problem: Military Ombudsm

    Six months? I retired with a 30 day entitlement, however having a plan in place I gave eight months notice. Do you know when Releases wants to see you to start pension paperwork (just to be clear release paperwork is different from pension paperwork)? Six WEEKS out from your last day of work and...

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

    They are not ALL "supposed" to be a secret, that is simply myth. For those that are, however what better way to blend then among your own kind while enjoying some minimal recognition for what you are?

    If you did your own searching you probably found these guys: https://www.haywoodhunt.ca/private-investigators-guelph.html I haven't used them, but they have a large presence across southern Ontario and the Toronto Star has gone to them for opinions on open investigations if that legitimizes...
