Re: Ford warranties

Sorry you've had such bad luck with your Fords! Aaaand... I'm still driving my '07 Honda Ridgeline, 295,400 km on it now, although it is in the shop today with a brake issue they're having trouble figuring out.

Re: Seeking a replacement vehicle...

Well, I went out looking today with a friend who was taking notes and asking more questions... I'm seriously considering the VW Tiguan... it's sporty looking and really peppy for a 2L (with turbo)! I like the VW's, the Tiguan and the other unpronounceable one (LOL) but I know 2 people with them and...

Re: PATI sample q's

Great questions. I'm going to go a different route and think outside the box with my answers. For Q1: I'd suggest calling the K9 unit instead of having 30 officers stand around a football sized field. Fiscal responsibility! And what happens if your dog handler starts at one end and your suspect run...

Re: Do LEOs value Security personel?

As it happens, a relative went through the firearms course for an armed courier service as a "perk" of being a major client. This was a number of years ago, but their use of force model was more or less aligned to "it's only money" and only drawing your weapon if you intend to st...

PTSD in Ontario - A step in the right direction

Ontario approves legislation automatically assuming PTSD is work-related for first responders. I hope this helps those who are affected by PTSD get the treatment and support needed. http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2016/04/05/ontario-recognizes-ptsd-as-work-related-for-first-responders.html Ontari...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I wish that was the situation in my case- I played hockey with my 'injury' for a while and go to the gym almost daily. It does not impair me other than the odd flare up but with a little physio and some exercises, its very manageable. Perhaps it is a safety issue, ei. if I injure it while pursuing ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hopefully I don't take too much flak on this but I am asking as I am hopefully close to a Depot date. My concern is I am a big guy and am not making any excuses however I'm worried about the running benchmarks. I have been very active my whole life and even now run and workout many times a week. My...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I've been searching the forums for some time about hair length. From my understanding thus far it just can't touch your ears or collar (for males). Here is a picture of the proposed hairstyle I was thinking of: m Is this acceptable at Depot, given that it does not interfere with the uniform? This i...

Thanks for that info, Lawdog. Makes sense that a situation like that would need clarification from the courts.

Re: Researching OPP for television script

If there's any indication before conducting this inventory that you expect to find evidence of another offense then you are required by law to go get a warrant, regardless of the inventory policy. That's an interesting point, from a lay person's point of view. Clearly goes to keeping things squeaky...

Re: Researching OPP for television script

Very interesting discussion. To take what you're saying a bit further, let's say you arrest someone in their vehicle, you have reasonable grounds to believe they are operating the vehicle impaired; would it be automatic that a vehicle would be towed/impounded, regardless of where it is located? (i.e...

Re: Engineering Degree to RCMP Applicant (or others)

Outside of Southern Ontario no one cares to draw the distinction, in fact, you could be from Cambridge or Barrie and they'd still lump you in with Toronto. Kind of like you've assumed N. Battleford is the middle of nowhere, presumably without ever going there, or to an actual middle of nowhere to k...
