Just a reminder that Scouts Canada members are not permitted to attend political events in uniform, we are non-partisan!

Scouts Canada announced this morning that starting today we will be moving to ban campfires from all Scouting activities in an attempt to better meet the changing needs and preferences of Canadian youth.
BP&P will be amended to include Section 4100: Campfires which will phase out the use of traditional "fire" campfires, to be replaced by the modern safe substitute, a tablet screen playing a YouTube video of a traditional fire.
Scouts have told us they love the much easier "screen fire" approach. "I just push a button" said Frank Firebug who won a contest to be able to write today's Facebook message, "No need for matches, or heat, or anything like that, it's just that easy"
In case you did not notice this was posted on the morning of April 1st - we actually love campfires!

We couldn't agree more. Beautiful weather is here, get outside and get #ScOUTing!
