it's got ******* maple leaves on it
#99 to #76 - Imrankhan (08/24/2014) [-]
Yeah, cuz, yknow, that's what their flag looks like. It's like if an American ship had stars and stripes on it.
User avatar #102 to #99 - kristovsky (08/24/2014) [-]
I know what their flag looks like. But, it's just funny that they actually put it on there, it would be like if The royal navy put dragons on welsh ships.

HMCS Haida is cuurently an out of service museum piece, however it remains fully operational an is maintained in the event it ever needs to be re-inducted into service. She still fires her guns once a week (blanks only though).

the current warships of the canadian navy are 15 small warships, a mixture of small frigates and missile destroyers, as well as a number of patrol craft and 4 victoria class submarines that are utter pieces of **** .

Not only that, we have submarines that won't go underwater!

More like canoes, which can somewhat go under water.
User avatar #17 to #12 - nativninja ONLINE (08/24/2014) [-]
no, because they're classified as submarines.

If you don't mind my asking, how long did it take for you to go through the application process?

Start to finish? About a year and a half. I had a delay that tacked on another 8 months because I missed the last hiring session of the fiscal year.

Good to know, thanks. I'm planning on joining as a medical technician, but for now I'm getting in better shape, doing a few missing high school credits, and I want to log a few hospital volunteer hours in the interim.

We still technically do, but it's in Alberta or Saskatchewan (honestly can't remember) and it's used to run deck simulations for our naval forces.
User avatar #58 to #29 - mangostormlegend (08/24/2014) [-]
Wait a sec, question:

How the **** do you get a carrier into Saskatchewan?
User avatar #74 to #58 - subaqueousreach ONLINE (08/24/2014) [-]
It's grounded, but all of it's systems and what not are still functional for training purposes.

It's like a big boat movie set next to the military base.

I think he meant how do you transport a carrier ship across like 1000km of land.

User avatar #104 to #94 - grimgilmore (08/24/2014) [-]
thing about Canadian soldiers is almost all of them grew up in the Canadian wilderness (because almost all of Canada is wilderness) hunting and tracking in some of the harshest conditions in north america. kind of like the special survivalist training american special forces do in Alaska, only as children. so i agree with nihaatclodra not as well equipped obviously but they are are on crazy high level of tough and skilled not really matched anywhere else in the world. (by standard forces, obviously special forces around the world are a different story)

Depends on where you go. Anywhere in SW Ontario, nobody likes anyone. If you go to Vancouver they're more or less indifferent. The only place I've been in this country where the people have been steriotypically friendly was Niagara, and that's because it's a bigass tourist trap.

Well I live In Windsor, and if you don't now it is literally across the Detroit river. We aren't particularly stereotypical lumberjack mounty maple syrup canadians because I'd say we're more Americanized than anything, and there's also a lot of immigrants here. But I must say, I've been to Detroit many times and also other parts of America, and there's definitely a different vibe. Like, I can walk almost anywhere in my city and feel safe, and people treat others nicely in public. The American environment seems to be ruled by hostility and paranoia from my perspective.
User avatar #69 to #66 - theinternetaddict (08/24/2014) [-]
I haven't heard the best things about Detroit to be honest..! I hear there's a lot of rising in the crime rate going there...!

It's really bad... the city is just falling apart, and not just because of crime.

Where i live in Nova-Scotia everyone is polite, everyone will hold a door open for you, women don't yell at you if you look at their children, and you can ask anyone on the street for directions or questions of the area and they will gladly answer. From my experiences in america i would say on average canadians are nicer.
User avatar #48 to #47 - theinternetaddict (08/24/2014) [-]
People in smaller cities or in provinces tend to be nicer...Of course I don't know if Nova is a small city..
#49 to #48 - theseventhmirror (08/24/2014) [-]
Nova Scotia is a pretty small province (about 900,000 people and declining) and about a third of the population is concentrated in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM).
Even myself, as a nearly mute anti-social asshole have responded to people that have asked for directions or if I knew when the bus was coming.
User avatar #51 to #49 - theinternetaddict (08/24/2014) [-]
And you answered my question now,so I guess you are not that bad

I'm Canadian and lived in B.C all my life, this is new to me..

I grew up in New Brunswick. 80% of the people will give you the shirt of their back if you needed it (applies for all the maritime provinces really). Very ironically given this post, I spent the last 11 weeks in BC for for my training course in the Navy. Anyway, I fancy myself for being fairly polite but in BC every weekend almost while I was exploring the town with friends from my course there would always be at least one crazy drunk guy trying to fight me or the group, we were a pretty polite group of people, even monitored eachother to make sure we don't swear in public, giving up seats on the bus for other people and all that stuff. Yet in 20 years in NB ive never had a random person on the street try and pick a fight with me while it happened 8 times in a summer in BC. Theirs definitely a huge gap within Canada itself on politeness.. We go down the to US every year and the southern states at least had way nicer people than you'd find in Ontario cities.

Just my 2 cents, I think its a city thing, in the cities it feels like no one has eachothers best interest at heart, every single time I was approached in Vancouver, the person either wanted money or had a mental disorder and wanted to scream at me in my hometown that would be extremely rare.
User avatar #115 to #77 - enkmaster ONLINE (08/24/2014) [-]
Im from a small-ish town in Ontario. When I go to ottawa, people give me wierd looks when I hold the door for them.

From what I can tell, the "polite" thing is at its most powerful in small towns. I've never been hassled by anyone where I live, and I was born here.

I've lived in Calgary for 13 years and I can confirm that Canadians are often real ****** out here in the west.

NB is still mostly **** though, I should know, I've lived here for 21 years....
User avatar #118 to #107 - dabombmanater (08/24/2014) [-]
The province is **** . But the people are great. BC in my experience was NB's opposit.
User avatar #100 to #77 - Nihatclodra (08/24/2014) [-]
My guess is you were in Vancouver? Because Vancouver is basically Canada's Manhattan... I live in Victoria, and everyone is quite polite and helpful here (though, we do have a fair amount of crazies in the mix as well...)
User avatar #116 to #100 - dabombmanater (08/24/2014) [-]
I was living on the navy base near Victoria but I went to Vancouver 3 times which is where most of my reference comes from. But 3 of the 8 crazies were from Victoria. It has more of small town feel but its still a huge jump coming from the Maritimes.
User avatar #130 to #116 - bibblesworth ONLINE (08/26/2014) [-]
I'm from a smaller city up island of Victoria, but having been across most of the country and to several other places in the world I find most city people tend to be the same and all drunk people will be the same regardless of where they live or what country they're from.

User avatar #28 to #10 - therealtjthemedic (08/24/2014) [-]
Navy is basically now just an extended name for carriers.
Battleships, etc are horribly outdated now and are only useful for shore bombardment.
User avatar #97 to #10 - hydraetis (08/24/2014) [-]
A navy would only be useful to us for going against Russia. Right now with all the minorities going bi-polar and constantly yelling at the government to pull our troops out/send our troops back in to the Middle East, we are more in need of an Air Force.
