Ok, Ok, I know that their is a section on here for pay issues, but I figure that is mainly for UK troops. If I'm wrong in that, well, they can rescind my birthday. BEAR IN MIND, THIS IS PURE RUMOUR! DO NOT SPEND MONEY YOU DON'T HAVE IN YOUR POCKET! That said, we have been hearing from the CDS for over a year now about how a pay raise is coming. And, according to Rumour Control, the talk is strong and very optimistic. I have heard from several sources, each independent of the other that the pay raise will be applied at end February 2005, backdated to 1 April 2004. So, how much is it? The word is 6.6%! For a Private, that translates into about $200.00/month gross with a lump-sum payment at end February of about $2300.00. As well, Rumour Control indicates that 1 April 2005 a 2.4% pay raise is in the works! So, any other Canuckleheads hear any good duff gen on this topic?
