Yes I applied to Toronto. I have been in the BGI for like 9 months now and still waiting. My BGI officer said my file was handed over to management. I don't know exactly what that meant. Oh well..."no news is good news."

Anybody find out the test set-up? I'm just wondering if I should be focussing on Trespass to Property Act and other related statutes, or if I should be brushing up on general aptitudes...

40 positions!? That's a LOT!

Good luck everyone.

Hmm since they are S/Csts you really think you should be worried about TPA, or more about CC offences.

FYI:
Just called the GO office and asked if I could obtain some general information on the testing. The person I talked to stated the test would be 'job specific' so take a good gander at the job posting and know your shiz!

48highlander, I meant all the fed/prov statutes that pertains to GO, just didn't list them. From my understanding, GO Transit through their appointment can enforce MHA, TPA, LLA, HTA and SSA? Anyone? Anyone? But, yeah, I will definitely include and brush up on CC.

Thanks.

SSA = Safe Streets Act
