    Majority of Canadians not interested in joining the CAF

    The 40% pension after 20 years (in my case) was a drawing card when I joined at 17 (YMMV). More important was the ability to do cool and adventurous stuff. An employer can get away with a lot in terms of poor pay and benefits if the job is fun and interesting. Just saying….

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

    Not a Tamara Lich fan, but we cannot find Crown Prosecutors willing to apply to judges to keep violent criminals with literally hundreds of arrests in a year in jail while awaiting trial…

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    But safe handling was not you proposed. You proposed a marksmanship test. What obtaining a certain grouping has to do with safe handling (especially for someone new getting into the sport who may have never owned or used a firearm previously is beyond me. People here are being polite to you. It...

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    Brad is right. You are the one conflating marksmanship and skill with firearms with firearms safety. Hitting a target should not be a governmental concern. A Government’s only concern should be that the right firearms are in the right people’s hands and that they are stored safely when not in...

    After SSE - Canada’s next defence policy

    On the surface, it makes sense to me that we would base our “DEWline refresh” on some form of SPY-7. The economies of scale in spares and training make sense.

    Acting Chief of Military Personnel on Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture Change Short-Term Initiatives

    I recommend that you bring this to the attention of the CoC. If hetro males are being blanket excluded from these types of events and it is not just a “one off”, this needs to be fixed. If your CoC is unable/unwilling to deal with this, I do know that CPCC has a plus account on the DWAN.

    Acting Chief of Military Personnel on Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture Change Short-Term Initiatives

    No reflection on any of the good PAOs I have worked with in the past, but this guy was oblivious to how bad a situation was and the Padre started to get “Jesus flipping tables in the temple” angry…

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    I sprained both ankles on my second jump there. Since I was in no mood to re-do J stage, I tied my combat boots as tight as I could and hobbled off the DZ. Luckily, we got stop dropped for a blizzard the next day which gave me time rest up and it considerably softened the DZ after that…

    Acting Chief of Military Personnel on Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture Change Short-Term Initiatives

    He was the best Padre I have ever seen. Heroic, funny, compassionate, smart as a whip. I did have to stop him one day from offering physical violence to a particularly clueless PAO, but, to be fair, he was severely provoked and somehow his anger just endeared him more to me.
