    Election 2015

    Why do we care (and why are we surprised?) that a much of back-room Liberals and New Democrats don't like Conservatives?

    Peter MacKay leaving politics

    He's 49, been in politics for 18 years, has a new wife and new child, and has another child on the way. His dad was in politics and Peter rarely got to see him. Is it so despicable to think that he might want to be with his family and watch his kids grow up?

    Peter MacKay leaving politics

    Very sad to see him leave. He was an outstanding Defence Minister, Justice Minister, family man, and one of the two men who should be credited for uniting the right and taking down the corrupt Liberals in 2006.

    Election 2015

    I think we've all heard of her  ::) The myth about her being behind the scenes, unapproachable, and invisible exists because the media want it to exist. Still, a good profile of her.

    Time to Arm Cenotaph Guard? (split from Domestic Terrorism)

    I saw the Ottawa Police sentry during the Vimy Ridge remembrance. From what I could see it was one Ottawa police officer (no squad car), one Corporal (overwatch and answering the public's questions), and the two sentries on duty.

    Op IMPACT: CAF in the Iraq & Syria crisis

    Have you called or emailed to ask where he was? Some of them were across the world (i.e. Vietnam) on legitimate parliamentary business. Mr. O'Connor has had health problems owing to his age. *Hopefully* they all had a valid reason.

    Component Transfer ( CT ) - Reserve to Regular

    Of course I've followed up. It's been a mixture of no response and "we'll look into that for you."

    Component Transfer ( CT ) - Reserve to Regular

    Election 2015

    :nod: Especially with a 5-way left-wing vote split in Quebec (NDP-Liberal-Bloc-Green-and whatever this new "Force Democratique" is).

    Who'll be the next CDS? Speculation here, please!!

    Cool! I've spoken with her a few times, but don't really know her.

    Who'll be the next CDS? Speculation here, please!!

    Has it been announced yet? As far as I can find (and knew...) it was LGen Millar. I more meant along the lines of someone with a logistics background than the trade per se - someone who has experience in developing and growing policies surrounding personnel, materiel management, acquisitions...

    Who'll be the next CDS? Speculation here, please!!

    I don't think there's any special science to figuring out who the Government will choose as the next CDS. Statistically speaking, the person to become CDS was usually either: a) VCDS; b) a liaison/deputy commander at NORAD or NATO; or c) the Army Commander. It's usually Air Force or Army...

    Primary Leadership Qualification Course (PLQ) Mega thread

    Being Acting Lacking for more than two years would trigger a review by DGMC. They would evaluate any medical issues and determine the appropriate course of action.
