    Cost of housing in Canada

    We had been searching for the past 5 months and finally bought a place outside Truro, NS for $1 over asking. We were fortunate., most people have to bid between $50K to $75K over to ensure a winning bid. We will be paying $150 more per month in total bills compared to our current place.

    General Vance - Inappropriate conduct?

    RCN command didn't enjoy much of the input from the JRs WRT the proposed rank changes. How much more distasteful would the higher CAF command find feedback from the entire JRs?

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    The UK was able to vaccinate 15 million in 6 weeks, that's half of the Canadian population. Allowing extra time for distribution for our larger country and for delivery from manufacturers, we should have been able to reach a far higher percentage of Canadians.
