Her ex-husband was a member of Bacchus MC so I’m sure the police and government were all real popular figures in their household.

I'm not sure why the media is tracking that story, honestly.  I think it was in bad taste, and I'm no fan of Justin T.

This is no shot at JT, but it has become fashionable for politicians to insert themselves in situations like this. And they do it at there own peril, because they are dealing with highly emotionally charged situations. People are, occasionally, going to say things that aren't polite.

What's wrong with a parade ? It wont include anything heavy as it might damage the streets.
As to the issue of security clearances you don't own it like a car its on a need to know basis. These former Obama administration types should not rquire one. If they get another top level job in another administration they should be able to pass the background check unless they are advocating the overthrow of the government.

To be honest nothing.  I assume that there are already veteran's day parades in the US.  This year does mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the 1st world war as well.

I'm curious how much our own commemoration parades will cost this year.  We'll have a contingent in Belgium and various cities across Canada not to mention this year's remembrance day ceremonies as well as an army contingent at Buckingham palace at that time.

Apparently she was not very happy with him.............

This part caught my attention. More than whatever she says she said to the PM,

“So I said so what. They wear a vest, they carry a gun, that makes them more important than one of us?"

There is really no harm in asking,  things have definitely softened up since I did BMQ.  There are folk here on my MP QL3 that recently finished BMQ and they put requests in to attend family birthdays during their indoc period and actually got the time off for it.  Absolutely BLEW my mind, as I am sure it will do the same to some of the crustier folks on here... but hey, it's a kinder gentler CF nowadays.

A few things,
1. you have to apply, which if you don't know about it or have a shitty case manager you will.never know
2. It depends on the amount of physical disability, and if it affects working
3. It also will adjust via mental health.
4. I forget the right way, but starts at one level and increases to a third, with varying degrees of compensation. (Which is currently taxed) and next year not.

So-called if someone getting PSC pension, as well as APSC, they are near the old charter threshold. Which seems it will be the liberal war cry when it comes to voting.
But- very few veterans, that actually use it will be getting PSC, and full grade APSC.

How about physical and mental? I just assumed that because I had 21 years in, I would be put at grade 3 regardless how severe confition is.

When you are at the level that these folks are, it is routine that they keep their security clearances so that the next administration can consult with them on new and ongoing issues. By having current clearances such consultations can happen rapidly without having to go through the vetting process needed to issue or reinstate a clearance. This is especially handy in crisis situations. All in all it's primarily to help the new administration rapidly access corporate memory to assist them in making sound and informed decisions.

To be honest would you want to bring in this man to consult with him? Seeing all the far out things he has said the past while. He is openly hostile.

The Director of the CIA is a non partisan position. As soon as he leaves the position, he starts bashing the new administration and POTUS. He recently said to the TV audience, picked up by other media, that Trump had committed treason (punishable by death), but offered no proof. He said in the last several days that losing his security clearance is a violation of his First Amendment rights. He said that on TV, on Twitter, etc then wrote on op-ed. Seems like he doesn't comprehend what the First Amendment says.

On TV, a host stated, second hand, that without a security clearance, he can't go back to check files for his book. Everyone in Washington writes a book. ;D
