Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

You haven't done your psyc or medical yet, your security is due soon... I'd say that it's safe to say you'd be looking at a fall, or more likely winter class if you get an offer. I would NOT, most definitely NOT email recruitment at this stage and start talking about hypothetical invites to the col...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I'm in the exact same boat only with a new baby on top of that, and it's a tough pill to swallow. Only you can know what's best for you. Just think though, if you go through with it you can have a life long career with decent pay to pay that debt back with. Weigh the pros and cons. As far as any fi...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

In a bit of a situation here and looking for some advice or answers. Now I am only about half way through the process so I do not want to sound like I am jumping the gun here, but I do not believe I will be in a financial position to go to Rigaud, well at least not in the near foreseeable future (9D...

Re: Your opinion - By-law/MLEO Uniforms, PPE and Vehicles

Why do I still reply to him... I'm not sure why you do either. The vast majority of by-law officers in Ontario (by-law in other provinces such as Alberta is very different) do not have arrest authority or the proper training to do so. It is commonly identified as prohibited in department policy and...

Re: Your opinion - By-law/MLEO Uniforms, PPE and Vehicles

I wouldn't do any enforcement job without being able to access enforcement history on the property/vehicle beforehand (Not just agency specific information, but overall history i.e. prior police response to an address, history of known occupants of address/vehicle, police alerts on property/vehicle...

And it goes on... Now do the by-law/mleo job without even a vest or a radio. Boom!

When are the work refusals going to start flying out?

Re: Your opinion - By-law/MLEO Uniforms, PPE and Vehicles

I keep hearing that we will never get PPE in our outfit. After all, speaking up about health and safety concerns is mostly ill advised and gets you only two things, either a black mark from management next to your name or you could be outcast from the rest of those who are trying to advance their ow...

Cheers.
