    CAN Enhanced (Permanent?) Fwd Presence in Latvia

    I don’t blame him for the state of the military at all. Has he improved it? No, but I don’t know that he’s made it all that much worse either. I was more pointing to his inability to say “we are announcing today that Canada will commit an additional x and y to the Baltics and will immediately...

    CAN Enhanced (Permanent?) Fwd Presence in Latvia

    Trudeau just finished his remarks without a troop commitment number for Latvia, but us and Spain will lead a global feminist movement so that’s neat.

    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    Probably but that doesn’t mean their really fit to task anymore. Not that a parade square isn’t a good multi purpose facility, but they need to be built with class rooms and maintenance facilities as the for front.

    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    I would say we’re in the operative word here. See my point about them being very dated. Most of my time in the Reserves I thought it was a very weird structure; having armouries built to facilitate drill nights for essentially neighborhood or community regiments is a concept that should have...

    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    Gee what could possibly make us less inclined to wear uniforms out in public ? Was there perhaps a fairly recent violent event ? Bearing in mind that Gault was already a Captain when he did that, it was a massively different world when he did that. Same with Lord Strathconna, paying for...

    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    Yes. Reserve armouries, almost without exception, are very very dated buildings generally build to house more social clubs that training facilities. One could make a strong argument, for example, to shut down both of them in Edmonton and have the reserve regiments use the enormous LTF and TAPV...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Sorry but that’s not true anymore is it? Bradley’s and Strikers are crewed by 11Bs no?

    Change of Command drill question / passing of the Colours and Swagger (Pace) stick

    I meant specifically for doing the parade. I’d call that good scheduling, not a short as a reward for doing the damn thing.
