clip Canada Day colour scheme?

July 01, 2015, 02:05:42 by MCG
Lots of black and red.  I assume this is a Canada Day theme, but it looks more like crimson apocalypse.  I cannot even see the underline to warn of my spelling mistakes.

For anyone looking to release from the military into the Construction Industry, this could be a great opportunity for you. It's nice to see that civilian employers are realizing the skills that military members bring to the workforce. Check it out.

clip Ontario to recognize military driver’s permits for equivalence

June 19, 2015, 14:59:11 by
From the provincial Info-machine:
Ontario is making it easier for Canadian military personnel and veterans to exchange their military driver's licence for a number of Ontario driver's licences.

Starting July 1, Department of National Defence (DND) 404 military driver's permits will become recognized equivalents for a number of Ontario commercial and passenger licences.

The change comes after the province completed an extensive review of DND licencing standards, which showed that military training and testing requirements meet or exceed Ontario's licence testing standards.

Allowing military personnel and veterans to use their DND 404 permits will reduce time associated with obtaining commercial licences required for employment in sectors such as the trades. The province will waive knowledge and road tests for those with a DND 404 driver's permit, but will still require applicants to complete a vision test, meet medical standards, satisfy identification requirements and pay a fee.

Ensuring Ontario's roads and highways are safe is part of the government's economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
Quick Facts
  • Organizations including the DND and Helmets to Hardhats requested the proposed regulatory change.
  • For July 1, 2015, implementation.
  • Manitoba and Quebec already recognize the DND 404 permit for licence equivalency.

xx Half-Mast Flags for Jacques Parizeau

June 08, 2015, 09:48:15 by CombatMacguyver
I just received notification in my outlook that all the flags on all federal buildings in Quebec will have their flags dropped to half-mast today in honour of the late Jacques Parizeau.  I can confirm that all the flags around Valcatraz are lowered.

I'm all for honouring the dead, but is this really appropriate?  The man's entire life-goal was to destroy the Canadian Federation as we know it (for better or for worse).  I've heard of being gracious to defeated enemies but....

The Flag seems to drop to half-mast far too easily in this country.

xx Anthrax Shipped to Canadian Labs

June 02, 2015, 11:54:47 by tomahawk6
When we screw up we do so in a big way. ;)

WASHINGTON (Tribune News Service) — The Pentagon has learned that additional samples of live anthrax were sent to three laboratories in Canada, two Defense officials confirmed Monday evening.

That means that specimens of the deadly Bacillus anthracis have been sent to labs in 12 states, the District of Columbia and three countries. The samples came from the U.S. Army lab at Dugway Proving Ground in Utah. Scientists there thought they had been shipping inactive strains of the deadly spores for research purposes.
