In a sentence;

It the long-term to permanent modification of job duties or work location for those officers that are unable (and some would say unwilling) to complete required aspects of training (generally related to use of force).

Re: Border Security Canada: Saturdays on Global

You are not bound to remain during a lengthy examination, such as a detailed disassembly if a conveyance, but it would be unusual to do one if there were not already grounds to detain you. If the officer makes you stay for it, one could argue it's a detention. Not at all. The Officer needs to know ...

Re: Mountain Bike Discussion

Fair play.

I'm riding in the Rockies and the few times I rode one found the bike harder to turn and not "twitchy" enough for my liking. Your mileage may vary I guess.

Re: Mountain Bike Discussion

Good descision Mack, you won't regret it (and the Nitro is a great bike). 29 and 26 refer to the wheel diameter. 29 is the "next big thing" but strikes me personally as a big gimmicky.The theory is that the larger rim has less angle of attack (appears "flatter" if you will) to ob...

Re: Mountain Bike Discussion

d. english, Did you go over the bar or run into something? I agree completely with d.english, that the $900-1100 mark is a great sweet spot for a hardtail. At that level, the bike will do everything a rider needs (except race and jump) and it will last you a lifetime. If that is in your budget, you ...

Re: Mountain Bike Discussion

Not a bad idea. As a mountain biking enthusiast I'll add the following; First, the most important thing you can do is go do a local reputable bike shop and have a knowledgeable salesperson help you choose a frame and take it for a test ride. If the shop will not let you take a decent test ride, you ...

Totally off topic, but couldn't resist:

Joey: If he doesn't like you, then this is all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh. A moo point?
Joey: Yeah, it's like a cow's opinion, you know, it just doesn't matter. It's "moo"

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Training at Riguad is going ahead as scheduled. They had planned downtime to prepare for the switchover from POERT to the Officer Induction Training Program. So, no big changes. Intriguing. I was just told that a BSO intake had just been cancelled (intake 80 IIRC). The info is second hand. Are you ...

Re: Does anybody know the history behind this patch?

Never seen it before, but it is certainly not official as it is uni-lingual.

The shape of the silver badge and the name Canada Border Services Agency places it post-2003 though. Probably a social-club, morale booster type thing
