hello, as a new member id like to point out that you should seek a SSL Cert from the canadian govt for anything related to the canadian military and such, one with the EV level.

Thanks Wayne, completely agree in principle, but as we are not an official site and receive no financial support other than from our members, EV certs are out of reach. Certs would be needed for Army.ca, Navy.ca, Air-Force.ca, and Milnet.ca, increasing the cost.

P.S. You may want to remove the Protected B info from your avatar. :)

Sorry Wayne, as noted this is not an official site of the CAF or DND, and I have no connection to 709 Sqn. Best of luck with your search.
So, now I have to see a hematologist because my platelets are extremely low and we have to find out why. I hope it is nothing serious and I can still serve one day...
I guess my biggest fear is the fear of failure and messing up because of my ADHD and the iceberg of symptoms it can affect.
Do you have any insight as to who was responsible for and why the 3 reg force regiments were reduced to nil strength (guards, QOR and Black Watch Watch). I have read the history and realize those units were selected in the 1950s mostly to meet NATO commitments.

If you have a minute of 50, would love to hear if and what you know of why and the whats happened. Thanks
Rick.

Now, rumour ~ but a rumour from a source I believe is (was, actually, dead now) 100% reliable and was totally "in the know:" Pierre Trudeau actually proposed, to his cabinet (early in 1969?) to totally disband the Canadian Armed Forces and make Canada a neutral national ~ a sort of large, cold, Costa Rica.

Rumour (cont) He had his reasons, but he was told that he would face a cabinet revolt which would, 95% certainty, cost him his job as PM and his political career. His minister knew that a neutral disarmed Canada would in m months. not years, become nothing more than a US protectorate.

Hope that helps.
