    Effect of Rowe v. Wade reversal in the US Military.

    Why would they need to return to Canada? Even though the number of states where an abortion may be available has diminished considerably since this SCOTUS decision, there are still providers available in many states. The distance that one would have to go may have increased but for some it may...

    [US] Army Drops Requirement for High School Diploma Amid Recruiting Crisis

    As far as I aware, unlike the US military services, there is no such list for the Canadian Forces. Each applicant's (and serving member's) health status is looked at individually with respect to history, diagnosis, treatment (if any), the response to that treatment and how it will be (or...

    What are you listening to/fav type of music

    Only 72? Would have thought he was older, if I gave it any thought at all. Saw him perform live once, fifty-one years ago at the Thomson Student Centre at MUN. The tickets were $2.50. (Edited to add) Some things from The Muse, student paper at MUN, Mar 1971

    Effect of Rowe v. Wade reversal in the US Military.

    I would hope that Canadian military families would be treated better than Americans for 'this' health care issue. While both American and Canadian military pers will (usually) have abortion services provided by other than military medical treatment facilities (MTF), the difference is that...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Yes, it is my opinion that their view is unacceptable to me. I usually have no problem with people who believe abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism and non-traditional marriage is wrong. I have a simple way of dealing with them; I ignore them. However, when "their view" is that they intend...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Unless they snuck in a pro-choicer while I blinked, this is the CBC piece in which the interviewee referred to the PM as "virtue signaling". She is identified as being with the Campaign Life Coalition, a group which, according to its website, is anti-abortion and also has very "traditional"...

    Effect of Rowe v. Wade reversal in the US Military.

    Nor would that CAF doctor do anything (clinical) for a dependent in DC . . . or at least that was the way it was. The medical det at CDLSW is (or was) primarily functioning as the medical admin/financial hub in the USA (there is/was a similar arrangement in Europe). Channeling back some 30...

    Effect of Rowe v. Wade reversal in the US Military.

    I hadn't thought about that aspect when I posted. Perhaps someone should ask the question to an appropriate authority . . . maybe one of these guys. (their phone numbers are listed in the Welcome Book) https://cdlsw-elfcw.ca/wp-content/uploads/Welcome-Book-2022-1.pdf...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    I must have missed that. However, there was a very vehement Canadian "anti-abortion" activist on the program who used the expression "virtue signalling". Her hope was that eventually (and soon) abortion would be outlawed in Canada as well.

    Effect of Rowe v. Wade reversal in the US Military.

    A microcosm of the wider debate on the Roe v. Wade reversal is the effect in the US military. While the provision of abortion services in US military medical facilities has long been restricted, service members (and dependents) could (with varying degrees of availability) access such services...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    While only tangentially related to the CPC leadership race, an interesting wrinkle. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/patrick-brown-rempel-garner-ucp-leadership-1.6498054 The loss of Brown's campaign manager (and Michele Rempel Garner as co-chair of his campaign) will likely have no...

    Stop The Presses,....Finally Hot Dog Buns and Wieners In Same Size Packages.

    "So we felt like it was our duty as the world's most iconic ketchup to rally our passionate fans and champion change for the age-old issue of unequal buns and wieners packs." Ketchup on a hotdog is not iconic. It's like wearing socks with sandals. Then again, Wonder Bread is so suburban...

    CRCN Message on the Steward Occupation Town Hall (Steward trade elimination)

    Casualty clearing was, in my experience (years and years past), the primary justification usually put forth as the "military" requirement for continuing to have stewards on Canadian warships. Yes, all the functions above listed could be handed off to other trades but the sense I get is that a...
