    Conflict of Interest

    Bradboy, I've left the MPs to go to the OPP.  I'll have to caution you on this.  If you think you're going to go to the Military Police, get 6 months of course, do a few years with the MPs and come directly to the OPP, you have something else coming to you. There are only a handful of agencies...

    Reg.Unit creating a Class B (Not mata/pata related) how to go about it?possible?

    Rather than start a whole new topic, since my question is along similar lines, I figured I'd post here. I am just looking for benefit information about someone that's on Class B for 89 days and away from family.  Is this person entitled to TD, IR or separation expenses?  I've searched around...

    Army Courses List

    Michael, Do you have the DIN link for the courses?  I'm assuming a memo through the chain of command is how one would get onto the mentioned courses? Thanks, Shaun

    That's because most of our military comes from Nfld or NB  ;)

    live from st. jean

    Some things have definitely changed, but with the exception of the 3rd Farnham week and the changing of when weapons was, we did pretty much what you describe in the 10 week course. We also slept in hooches and not the barrakcs and lived off of ration packs for the most part. This was all last...

    is your BMQ based on location or is it random?

    Tomas is right, Only the basic training for reservists is done in Borden.  Everything Reg Force is done in St-Jean.  That won't be changing anytime soon.  They're taking the Language School out of the Mega in January to make room for extra recruits for BMQ. Shaun

    Something strange going on here.....

    There's a difference between the QL3 course PT mandate and the Basic Training PT. I'm posted to St-Jean right now as an MP and I see what's going on with the courses and the PT doesn't come anywhere near what I did in Borden or what you're describing in Kingston. Shaun

    Something strange going on here.....

    Tomas, Trust me, you won't be doing 100-200 pushups a day on course.  You  might do 25 pushups every couple of days, if you're lucky.  Depends on your instructors though.  But when I went through basic, no one was doing 100-200 pushups a day.  That was last year! Shaun

    Compassionate Circumstances

    Hey everyone. We quite often hear of "Compassionate Circumstances" when dealing with Postings, Courses, Release, Tours etc. Can anyone give a definition of what this means?  I know it's dependant on the individual, but quite often it seems like compassionate circumstances mean someone has to...

    Question: Luggage to St Jean

    Feel free to put it in whatever you want.  The point is you don't need a trunk full of stuff to get through basic training.

    Question: Luggage to St Jean

    Trunk of stuff????  ::)  I hope you're not planning on bringing a trunk of stuff with you to St-Jean.  The only thing you'll need to bring are about 3 shirts, 3 pairs of pants and enough underwear to get you through the week.  The rest of the stuff you'll be wearing is issued and any other stuff...

    The Military Police [MP] Superthread

    Security used to be the term used for Military Police.  Now it's just MP.  However, to confuse you a little bit, there is a Security Branch to the Military Police.  Basically there's Physical Security or Security Protection.  To answer some of your questions, it depends.  Do you mean MP Officer...

    Kirkpatrick, I‘m pretty anxious to leave the sticks :) Not much to do in Northern Ontario, but it‘s still nice here and when given the chance I will be back for sure. Can‘t live without the hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and overall slow pace to life compared to a really fast paced life...
