    Advice on how to write a Mental Health claim to Vac?

    I was in a unit firing 10000 rounds a week AND explosives- my tinnitus was not duty related. Pretty flooring. The ear specialist said that the tinnitus I have is specifically recognized in the states but not in Canada. Of ALL the claims- I thought that one was the gimme

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    Is this like an ignorance thing? Like is it an ivory tower thing? I would suggest a good Portion of my diet is venison…shot and killed by hunting. 🤔 Nobody has rejected that either. I guess he wants me to eat more lucky charms and noodles as a “doctor”

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    This is politics trumping operations- it makes operational sense for cops to be where crime is. That “we pay for the car so I want to see it” is the bane of every police manager trying to deal with crime trends.

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    No You’re not Wrong. In my experience with large municipal contracts the RCMPs systems don’t scale up well- municipalities at a certain level are better off with their own, more expensive systems. It’s not so much quality or practice operationally, but the way the systems interact. If police...

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    A new territorial service would be needed, how you’d factor recruiting retention god knows. The RCMP also float the majority of First Nations policing in the country, and in a secondary way they also float other First Nations police services in a support nature, there are several small to mid...

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    Because senior rank RCMP officers would be in charge of less things or have less profiles that they have led change in on their resume. They’d rather “be in charge” of 1000 vacancies rather than have them handled elsewhere. We absolutely should be carving off as much contract policing as they...

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    I’d love to hear your opinion on why that is.

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    How is undoing 200 officers and 15% of required infrastructure less disruptive than the other way around? I’m actually for the transition- but I find this sentiment interesting because I see it as completely opposite. I feel for R5 over there but I’m not following this story anymore- I’ve come...

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    That expression is a total nonstarter. There’s plenty of other places where billions have real lives to save. And there’s only so many billions. When I hear that expression it’s useful in helping me know how close I should listen to the person lol

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    My opinion isn’t really valuable but i usually drunkenly rant that it’s the decay of everything. I don’t wish for the old days- there was a different set of issues. But then- your local people only knew local news. So a rash of breakins where we caught the guy was it. Now everything is...

    "B.C. Mountie's anti-Trudeau website raises concerns about discriminatory views within the RCMP" (split from White nationalism/CF thread)

    100%. Race out of uniform- want to say they are cops more than doing the job.

    By making others go over and over instead. Now caveat- there may be the intention that this is temporary as they return to work or whatever- I am not privy to all the health dealings- and I wouldn’t share that info anyways. That said- I haven’t seen it re-addressed and amended. That’s...

    "B.C. Mountie's anti-Trudeau website raises concerns about discriminatory views within the RCMP" (split from White nationalism/CF thread)

    I am increasingly coming across members on medical profiles indicating that they no longer have to deal with sudden deaths. Like as part of their medical restrictions. It is a small amount so far- but what the long term strategy of that is I have no idea. It is unhelpful.

    "B.C. Mountie's anti-Trudeau website raises concerns about discriminatory views within the RCMP" (split from White nationalism/CF thread)

    In studies RCMP members are higher than the others (police) for injury in any studies I’ve seen. This CBC article mentions possible reasons- such as being alone etc. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/police-fire-fighters-ptsd-paramedis-1.4266720 It’s not a competition. Just on the subject of...

    I’m fairly certain that the member is removing stuff because he plans on cooperating. Which means we won’t be able to use the case as a test for some things that need testing.

    You’ll note that the media officer is referring to it as “discriminatory content”. That’s an escalation since the first article

    The media are notorious for that. Finding an “expert” at a university who isn’t an expert. They’re a professor- not an expert. Actual Expert opinions are in depth and not usually very interesting. But some guy from UBC with soft hands has lots of good ideas about how things should be done...

    In your experience- private sector- are employees signing an understanding of these things- like how often can someone say “I didn’t know?”

    I’m not in disagreement. I don’t think Mounties should be political. Especially like this

    Pending the outcome of the allegation that he contravened something- he was sent home until they determined “guilt or innocence”- but he retired. So they never settled the question.
