    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    So one of my closest friends was an MWO. He and I and a Sgt spent many an evening together while I was a senior officer. Any issues there?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    They also had a completely morally reprehensible policy of "Don't ask Don't Tell". Not exactly a moral compass

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    It is in fact completely unreasonable. That way lies madness. How about the CAF treats its people like adults... And why an exception for CIC officers ? On what moral, legal, constitutional, or even commonsensical principles are you basing your suggestion?

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Except the context of the original discussion was institutional leadership - vis CDS et al. I think that not all "styles" best prepare someone for the strategic roles that we ask people to assume....or that some chase to their detriment...and the institution's.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    As I have been prone to say - often to senior RCN "leaders" - it is not hard to "lead" when every one is locked in a tin can and you have sole and uncontested authority to force all the souls in that tin can to go wherever you want. No Navy guy or gal (less boarding) has ever said those...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    They have less than 20% of the force, but claim 1/3 of the top billets. Talent dilution is a real thing here. Plus.....RCN is way better at command than at leadership......

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    They will commit to making a committent to announce an announcement to plan to make a plan....which they will then surreptitiously defund. At least the Conservatives issued a plan before they surreptitiousy defunded it....

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Yup. He is not hinting. He firmly intends to make an announcement....4 times over 2 years...with no commottment, no decisions, no output, no "deliverology". Sigh. If only we were a real country

    Op UNIFIER - CAF and the Ukraine Crisis

    Of course that means completely subjugating our right to imdependent foreign policy, ROE, national interests, objectives, legal justification for the use of force etc, to say nothing of national accountability

    5 Required Skills For Leading Change

    So, slavish adherence to longstanding processes isn't one of them? Dying in the ditch over every issue? No? Mocking the new, or anything you don't understand? Waiting it all out until you can retire without having to change? No? How about denial? Refusal to acknowledge the actual need for...

    Civilianizing the Military Justice System: Throwing out the baby with the bathwater or not?

    So remind MPs to focus on being the Police for the Force, istead of the Police of the Force? Heresy. I once witnessed, at a Bde PD session, an MP Pl Comd tell the Bde Comd that the function of MPs was to protect the reputation of the CAF. It did not end well.
