Canadians, throw away your razors

So the Canadian Forces just sent this out:

To allow Canadian Armed Forces members more personal freedom regarding their individual appearance, the Chief of the Defence Staff immediately authorizes Canadian Armed Forces members to wear beards, except in certain circumstances for safety and operational requirements.

As operational readiness is paramount, commanders retain the right to restrict the wearing of beards. This includes operations or training involving chemical-biological-radiological-nuclear environments, although these restrictions are meant to be temporary.

This policy change, which took place following extensive consultations with Canadian Armed Forces members, recognizes that greater control over personal appearance enhances organizational morale and our ability to attract a wider range of Canadians.

The personal dress and appearance of military members reflects the professionalism and credibility of the Canadian Armed Forces, and members are expected to continue maintaining high standards of dress and deportment.
