    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    The AWS trade is basically dead at this point. Because we are so short on the bottom, they are capping promotions at the same time an entire generation of members are becoming pensionable. People are getting out because they don't see any growth individually or as a trade. Last I checked the...

    Medical Release ( merged )

    That is the biggest problem. I do what needs to be done, that is who I am at my core. I guess I just have to get over it and let things go undone if need be.

    Medical Release ( merged )

    I need some advice. A little background to start: I'm over 70% disabled according to VAC and my 20 comes due in about a year. My problem is that I don't ever see a point where I won't be able to do my job due to my injuries. I still go to the gym almost every day and I can still out 'physical' a...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    You're the expert here but I think one of the issues is that military law does have exactly the same aim as civilian law. From my understanding, military law is supposed to punish people quickly and get them back in the fight as soon as possible. Civilian law is more about protecting the rights...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The average age for a Sgt(E-5) in the US Army is 22 with 4.5 years in. They have roughly the same level of authority as a MCpl. If your system is robust, you can get away with it because they should be supported from above. The problem I see is a) our system is weak and getting weaker, b) our...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I agree there has to be a line where it goes straight to staff. Staffing a leave pass? 100% with in the capabilities of a Cadet. Initiating a sexual harassment investigation? That needs to go to staff immediately. I can't argue that RMC doesn't add anything but in theory it should.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The whole point of going to a military college is to be put in positions of progressively more authority to develop your leadership skills before you lead troops. Maybe the problem is that there needs to be oversight and people who abuse their authority need to be dealt with harshly up to and...

    Resort CEO told women at B.C. conference to 'go clean some rooms and do some dishes'

    Are you all so completely oblivious as to the concept of humour that I have to break down why someone might think this was funny? Ok here goes. He is speaking at an event celebrating women in the workplace. That is the opposite of being in the kitchen. By saying 'get back in the kitchen", he is...

    Resort CEO told women at B.C. conference to 'go clean some rooms and do some dishes'

    It was clearly a bad joke. Can we stop pretending he meant it seriously? He wasn't laughing at the women there, he was making a joke at how far things have come. It's the kind of joke you make around a couple of friends who know you not in the opening remarks of a conference. Doesn't mean he is...

    C.O.D.E (Conversation on Defence Ethics)

    I think we absolutely have to hold superstars as accountable as everyone else. However, I don't agree with your idea that the little things don't matter. If someone doesn't get a hair cut, despite knowing they need a haircut, it tells me something about their character. If a unit does a bun...

    C.O.D.E (Conversation on Defence Ethics)

    I thought it was a waste of my time, designed like a sermon not a conversation and was obvious to its biases. All you had to do was read the objectives to learn what you were supposed to learn. On top of that, I also sat in a session with my boss and the DCO, which definitely killed some...

    CH-148 Cyclone Progress

    I'm an aircraft technician but thank's for being a dick. I was making a joke about the word Bespoke and how it carries a connotation of expensive like a bespoke suit.

    CH-148 Cyclone Progress

    I don't think we can afford bespoke repairs.

    CH-148 Cyclone Progress

    From what I have been told, the cracks are in the tail section near where the tail and the fuselage join. They are structural in nature. I have also been told that Sikorsky had known about the issue with the 92Fs but hadn't informed the military, although this could just be rumour so we should...

    CAF improves promotion selection process, beginning with General and Flag Officers

    Evidence based is the new synergy. It used to mean something but now it is just something that gets thrown out to sound sciencey and modern. How do you have an "evidence based framework" for subjective character traits?
