    Hockey Canada in the Government Crosshairs

    I mean who cares if it's true, right? There's a ton more to the story that was the catalyst for the funding freeze. I find it really odd the woman refused to cooperate with police, but was willing to file a lawsuit later on.

    Hockey Canada in the Government Crosshairs

    Hockey Canada has a "2 deep" rule as well. My issue with the funds being cut is we all know where it will hit: grassroots hockey for young kids. It's certainly not going to cut high performance and elite hockey programs.

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    Both aircraft have boom plus wing pods for probe and drogue refueling. We didn't need to know what fighter we were getting before selecting A330 MRTT.

    USN Laser and Drone swarms....

    Your only deconfliction issues would be if something else in the fleet used a system in the same frequency band, or a harmonic thereof. I have a feeling there's already a ton of self-defense ECM on modern warships so adding in smaller, directional counter UAS systems would not be that much of a...

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

    Oh look, false equivalencies. I'd argue lacking proper military uniforms and an atrocious supply/logistic system is more of a dissatisfier than doing a day or 2 of parade practice for a 1 hour parade every 2 years. But if you honestly think people are leaving the CAF because they have to do...

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

    Ah the classic "lets do it on Teams" NCR mentality. You absolutely have no facts to support an assertion that change of command and appointment parades are making people quit the CAF. Being in the military requires military things. Traditions also evolve, which is why we're seeing a lot more...

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

    So firstly, we do have parades for ongoing RSMs, it's called a change of appointment (or change of stick) parade. I sat through one today, it had a reviewing officer and took 30 mintues. Secondly, only a single member of a unit has the delegated authority to command on behalf of the superior...

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

    The "I have better work to do crowd" sure don't turn down the short day I've seen almost universally handed out after full change of command parades either...

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

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Mendocino is going to get thrown under the bus by Trudeau, media is just helping set that stage now. They'll let Trudeau skate away again, even though this was wholly his decision to use the Emergencies Act inappropriately, not a single cabinet minister on a breakaway.
