I don't know what the official policy on uniforms worn by DE and
professional Scouters is in BSA or Scouts Canada, but I do know what impact
it has on (at least some of) the youth. A number of the youth would rather
not wear the uniform, but will wear it happily enough if everyone else is
wearing it. When they see adults not wearing a uniform, or not wearing a
complete uniform, their attitude is "then why should we?". My feeling is
that if you want the youth in proper uniform, YOU wear the proper uniform.
You are setting an example for them.
