You are kidding me? I can’t get DSCO interested in doing it‘s actually job of printing certain documents that we cannot obtain by any other method and they continue to produce CDs that nobody can read?
1 step forward, 5 steps back. Its the Shared Services Canada way!

DSCO is a DND CAF own goal.
My favourite is when we submit info for cataloging and it gets stripped out of all the fields and left with some useless description like 'valve', or even more confusing, 'night vision viewers' for the thermal imaging cameras.

Really hate dealing with them most times.

On my flight from Ottawa to Toronto I noticed a RCN LCdr wearing relish. Getting deployed I would assume?

Or employed with a CA organization not unlike myself. Where I first got to the CBG HQ we had a LT Adj, PO1 Fin and myself. All Naval folks in CADPAT.

But wearing the combats travelling domestically? Weird.
Why was he wearing uniform at all? Having not worked in the NCR, are flight to/from Ottawa/Toronto so short and frequent that you would potentially be going directly from the flight to your place of business?

And its too noticeable. Security wise its not a good sight.
I'm not sure there is much/any security risk in members wearing uniform on business travel. It looks out of place, and draws attention, but beyond the risk of a member having a couple too many wobblies at the bar, there isn't really any risk.

I occasionally wore CADPAT on commercial flights if I was going straight off the plane into a meeting.

I've travelled in uniform a couple of times, for the same reason.

I think the CAF should be seen in uniform more often, but I also understand why people prefer to travel in civies.
