Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hello everyone, I had a question regarding an RCMP deferral. I believe I have gotten an accidental deferral at the final review of my final at the Security clearance stage and I was wondering if there is anything I can do about it?

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Curious question, are they back to using the regular dorms at Depot? Yes. Cadets are back in Fort Dufferin, Fort Macleod and Fort Walsh dormitories. Yeah, but those buildings certainly lack that je ne sais quoi of "B" Block circa 1975 1976 and its 32-bed dorms with the 12 sink / 8 urinal / 10 toile...

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?
