You could also be attached to another Battle Group, so your chance may come before PPCLI's next roto.

westcoastop, just worry about getting through your BMQ/SQ/DP1 Infantry (6-8 months long depending on when the courses are booked). 

Mods, maybe the point is made and we should perhaps lock this one down?

a better question would be: when did we leave? Patricia's have been there on most Rotos, in some number.

You ain't goin' anywhere, anytime soon, so stop worrying about it.

Everyone else: maybe it's not a great idea to tell everyone in the world when they can expect to see certain groups of Candian soldiers leave certain areas at certain times, in order to travel to other areas for certain times. Just a thought. ::)

Lets take this one further: Its OPSEC pure and simple. You and your units travel plans should be held in the highest close hold. Nobody outside you and your immediate family should be told about your actual departure and arrival times. It pains me to hear about the news telling the world about another flight of soldiers departing or arriving from thier staging  bases.

Our leadership and our PAfOs need to smarten up a bit.

I'm with the rest of you guys, however, I did find this information on other official DND sites, perhaps a memo should be sent to them as well, just a thought.  But shut this one down.

because it's another opportunity to explain the importance of Security. Something that the CF is abominable at. If I just delete the thread, the same thing will appear elsewhere. Hopefully, by pointing out the error, at least one person will catch on.

Me, if I were on the other side, I'd be using this sort of info for all sorts of nefarious purposes.

I think it was a legitimate asked by a young recruit.  Yes, he needs to crawl, walk, run, and, of course, finish his basic training.  Yes, he will have ample opportunity to deploy over the next few years.  Let us not be too hard on him for asking a question.

As for OPSEC, yes the CF does a terrible job at it but when there are official websites dedicated to the TF (including joining instructions) well, what more can I say.  It is not hard to figure out what units are going

http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/tf107/TF107_e.htm
http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/lfwa/tf108/cmd_message.htm

This entire site is full of OPSEC issues so why worry about it over "unclassified" news.

Totally I agree it should be just left at the fact that the CF is There and that is it!! Does it really matter what regiment is there!!

So, Mr.Perfect, were you going to make the Staff aware of any of them, or just keep your vague generalizations as fodder for your anti-establishment mini-rant? Grow up.

All,

Just a friendly reminder that we need to be very careful in how we handle potentially sensitive information here. Unfortunately, we are visited from time to time by those who would wish to do harm to our forces, as they seek out information that may be useful to them.

In the past, DND has shut down websites to ensure sensitive information remains out of sight, and we have a responsibility here as well.

What can you do? If you think information may be sensitive, don't post it. You can always ask someone in the know if posting that type of information will cause a problem. You can also ask publicly, so long as it is in general terms. (For example, asking "Is it appropriate to post the location of Canadian ships?" is OK, asking "Can I post that I saw HMCS Ottawa docked at Halifax last week?" means you've just done so.)

If you see information that you believe is sensitive, please use the "report to moderator" button
. That will bring it to our immediate attention and we can quickly review the post and take the appropriate action.

As a reminder, here are a couple of pertinent excerpts from the Army.ca Terms and Conditions:

If you're seeing OPSEC violations and not reporting them to the Site Owner, not only are you irresponsible, you are violating the Conduct Guidelines.
