Re: Careful what you wish for

My Joe first went to Onion Lake SK - it was a 3 year Limited Duration Posting, due to it being a very laid-back, soft-serve kind of place! Then he left for AB (yes, thank you, I DO appreciate the sympathy you ALL are telepathically showing me over the SHAME of him being there!): - Redcliff: 4 years;...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

When I went through, it was my BMI that was far higher than normal. Doctor made a basic comment, but also understood that I was competing in a strength sport at the time so carried a lot more muscle mass than most people carry total mass.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

You guys ever try emailing or calling to see what’s going on? I emailed recruitment in another province and told them how long I’d been waiting (7 months at that time). I was emailed my clearance the next day I haven't spoken to any recruiters other than my own. All she said was management is curre...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Not that I'm applying to the RCMP but I saw thatas of May 15th if you're an Ontario applicant it will cost you $250 to apply?? I see this as a huge deterrent to an organization that's already low in applicants. Good for you. Yes it is. I appreciate the support. https://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/police-...

Trial by Jury vs Judge Alone

I do not post often in the open forum, let alone about the law and Courts, but I just read the "Back of the Book" in this month's BL - it seems to have been written by a young man, just starting out in life, full of vim, vigour, and idealism (hey, Morley, howze it goin', anyways?!) MAYBE we keep jur...

I was wondering if I can be transferred early if i am recently married and my spouse lives in a different city?
