Just read on the CTV website (http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20061026/soldiers_fitness_061026/20061026?hub=TopStories) that potential recruits for the Canadian Forces are no longer required to pass a fitness test. They will now be tested once they are enrolled, but not until they commence Recruit Training. Yes, this should make things easier all the way around and encourage more folks to volunteer for instructor positions at the Recruit School. Perhaps we can skip the medical as well? That way we could take advantage of all those folks that would like to join, but aren't allowed because of a touch of cancer, tuberculosis, prior drug use, etc. A real trove of potential recruits there!
