    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    I'm sorry but the law of inintended consequences looms large here. What happens next? No more compulsory immunization for anything? How do we function in the world where protective immunization is a requirement to cross borders?

    Annuitant and Class C

    So then I infer that you "double dip" until the 335 threshold is met as well? Do you contribute to CFSA while on the Class C contract?

    Annuitant and Class C

    Question for the pension experts out there... If a Class A reservist who is an annuitant takes a Class C contract for international ops, how does that effect the pension?

    9 out of 10 Jobs created in Canada in 2020-2021 were in the Public Sector

    I tried to explain once that each public employee requires four equivalently paid private employees to maintain. People couldn't understand that public employees are at best, net zero to the economy, but in reality a net negative.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    If the news about Melitopol is correct, this potentially cuts Crimea off to resupply by sea, and via the Kerch (Crimean) bridge. It also puts that same bridge within range of Ukrainian weapons. Ukraine already controls the sea lanes, taking out the bridge would make for a very hard time in Crimea.
