Anyone have tips for passing the unrestricted class 4 road-test? That is actually my biggest obstacle at the moment. I don't have a 15 passenger van readily available; so if I fail, I will be out hundreds of dollars and will have to retest.
Rent a 15 seater van?

Congrats on taking the first step. However, you could’ve posted this into the TPS thread instead of making a brand new one.

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?!)
