    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    I am convinced at this point, nothing short of removing the firearms act and putting back in the pre-1994 restrictions will amount to anything. The OIC portion of the law is the most dangerous part as it allows them to outlaw any firearm (or all firearms) without even having to go through...

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    The magazine thing alone would be a huge deal. Pretty much every rifle magazine in Canada with the exemption of a few hunting magazines originally held more than 5rds and were pinned. There is likely millions of magazines that would be impacted by this as well as virtually all firearms owners...

    Liberals have anounced they are going to be even harder on firearms owners with the following being in their platform. Ending Gun Violence | Liberal Party of Canada 'Our communities should be safe and peaceful places to live and raise children, but American-style gun violence is rising. 2019...

    Canadian Forces Reservists behind fake letter warning of wolves being released

    All I can say is I never mistook a officer for a warrant under the old system. You see bars it doesn't matter you salute and call sir or mam. The old system worked and was often complimented by other nations for how simple and effective it was. I never heard a complaint about them other than the...

    Canadian Forces Reservists behind fake letter warning of wolves being released

    Or even better return to the simple, easy to use and identify, unification ranks which we spent about as much time under as all the older ranks.

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    So let me get this straight, first we force people to be part of and pay for a healthcare system you cannot opt out of or have any other alternative to. Then we should also put all sorts of restrictions on receiving medical care because of things that could have been 'preventable' or based off...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    Which if the person is not consenting is assault. The fact that atrocity the notwithstanding clause (a atrocity in the fact it only exists to give the government the power to violate your rights) is the go to response whenever a government is violating a citizens rights, tells me a lot about...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    Actually I would argue that isn't the case. Individual rights need to be upheld to the utmost extremes, as anything else leads to dictatorships, massacre's, and repression. The Residential Schools were in 'societies best interest' when they created them and look how that turned out. I used to be...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    And some people not proven guilty in a court of law are still criminals and guilty of the actions. I happen to know of more than a few CAF members who due to lack of evidence are walking free when they should be behind bars.

    Montreal police ticket veteran bagpiper for carrying traditional knife

    Many swords were never sharpened, often it was at the discretion of the person using it. For example cavalry swords were often not sharpened as you didn't necessarily want to cut into the person as it could then be snagged on the bone when travelling at speed, the momentum of the blade and horse...

    ‘You either went to war or you didn’t’ — How deployments divide the vet community

    There has to be something we are all missing otherwise going 'postal' wouldn't have been a saying.

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    Some simple math as to why the debt is terrible for Canadians. This was all based off numbers gathered when Trudeau first took office so I suspect the interest payments have increased if only due to the massive increase in debt, but at that point we had 600 billion in debt. We were paying 35...

    ‘You either went to war or you didn’t’ — How deployments divide the vet community

    I suspect the CWT issues relate to also how they were treated by the WWII vets (and even the Korea vets who were also treated poorly by the WWII vets), as they did plenty to make them feel unappreciated and worthless. 'Your a CF retiree, not a veteran', 'We signed up because we were needed and...

    The Heikendorf Panther - The German Tank Found in a Basement

    If I remember correctly there was a news article on this years ago where the mayor of the town was asking why everyone was so shocked. Apparently in the 70s this guy brought the tank out to help clean up the town after a blizzard. Sounds to me more like the laws changed on his legally owned...

    Will 2021 see a new pistol buy?

    To be fair, provided the pistols were in newer shape they could just do this. It's not that the BHP is a bad pistol (most modern pistol designs are pretty much the same design reworked a bit), it is just a worn one. The quality of the pistol is a lot of why it has remained in service so long...

    RCMP First Contract

    Personally I am a huge fan of two man per car policing. I am also a fan of having more police. Part of that is if your paying a bit less for the cops salary you can afford more cops or better equipment for them to use for the same price. The CAF runs into a similar problem where part of the...

    RCMP First Contract

    I simply want good value for my tax dollars, and a constant justification of rates and pays is part of that. The public sector exists to provide services. It doesn't generate wealth though. Basically any money they take back in taxes is not wealth generated for Canada as drawing a salary in the...

    RCMP First Contract

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/private-sector-workers-earn-less-work-more-report-1.2292650 Obviously it isn't equal with some jobs underpaid, but in many cases a lot are overpaid too. Best comment I saw in a while to explain this is Private sector is driven by profits which results in as much...

    RCMP First Contract

    Your right that it is a first world complaint to want fiscal responsibility and good management, many of the kleptocracies of the world wouldn't tolerate that concept, hell our current PM is doing his best to emulate some of them. It is a large part of what separates us from them. Congrats on...
