    How many have chosen the new PFL over a lump sum payment

    Now that the new Pension for life has been around for awhile, I am curious as to how many people received the PSC or applied to get a lump sum. My sense is that most are still getting the lump sum, am I way off on that? Why did you choose what you did?

    RAAF marks centenary by dropping gendered ‘airman’ term in favour of ‘aviator’

    It doesn't affect my day to day life one bit and once it became official it was a moot point but the choice of aviator as a replacement for either private or airman shows how messed up our process is. First of all, as Pilots and ACSOs make up the vast majority of our officers the odds of someone...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Maybe send up a "Rag sheet" from the members subordinates with the brag sheet in the PER file? It could be done survey style (rate conduct out f 5) or as some short answers to direct questions. We could do it as part of the PDR process rather than part of his evaluation if people are concerned...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Fair enough. I probably should have said "using their position of authority" like a medal or a fancy job title to get laid not invoking their authority to coerce sex. I just realized that when I think about how I said it, I put mental air quotes around "abuse" and that totally changes the...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I literally don't know of the offer of favors would be considered "exercising their authority" to coerce consent. I would guess not but I could be wrong. Of course I would call the police. Why do you think I would drag his broken bleeding ass backing to office? Call me a knuckle dragging...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Someone outranking someone doesn't mean that they are exercising that authority to gain consent. Notices it doesn't say having authority but using that authority. I can walk down the hall and find more than member who is outranked by their service spouse does than make their entire marriage one...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    If it isn't normal how coming it has been happening since the beginning of written history and probably longer? The whole point of getting a position of power, from an evolutionary perspective, is to get greater access to sex. If you are telling me that there could never imagine a situation...

    VAC wait times

    Your SSD is the day you submit all the information required on your part. Everything after that is on VAC. They will often try to tell you that it doesn't start until they have all the information they need but that isn't what the policy says. With that is mind, I try to make sure I submit...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Careful now. That's kind of talk got General Lawson fired. Though to be fair, you said it better than he did. A certain percentage of men will abuse their position to get sex, a certain percentage of women are attracted to men in positions of authority and will work to attract them. This is...

    Cost of housing in Canada

    I'm attempting to purchase a house right now in Halifax and even they are having bidding wars. It is ridiculous.

    What is your favourite Military Saying

    Some old Army ones that may have fallen out of style in the last decade or two: Idle Crow - Lazy bastard ie "Get moving you idle crows" Cockjaws - Said to someone who won't shut their mouth ie "you can't keep your damn mouth shut can you, Cockjaws?" Asseyes - Said to someone who won't won't...

    I would like to congratulate Fishbone Jones on the second anniversary of his VAC Claim. That is longer than many marriages.

    VAC wait times

    4 more months to go at this rate. That will be just about 2 years. Disgusting. There is a post from me, back in 2015, on the first page of this thread being concerned I hadn't received a decision at 15 weeks. Oh how nice it was to have such problems.

    General Vance - Inappropriate conduct?

    We have reached a point where I work that we can not do our principle task without breaking the rules or spending 3 times the required time to do the job combine with 3 days of pre-planning. We are becoming Americans trying to substitute "safety" rules in place of teaching people to be safe in a...

    Congratulations on Your Military Service… Now Here Are 9 Reasons Why I Won’t Hire You

    There used to be a program like that where employers would go out for "military training" where they would shoot guns, go for RHIB rides, ride a tank, etc. I think we should do more of it but maybe they have cut it because it is hard to impress someone who has a cutting edge cell phone in their...

    Congratulations on Your Military Service… Now Here Are 9 Reasons Why I Won’t Hire You

    I will be honest, this scares the shit out of me a little. I can see my retirement on the horizon and I have zero direct skills to market. I have spent the majority of my career working with things that go BANG or BOOM and neither translate well to civvy side. To top it off, I joined young prior...

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    I don't agree with him but how can you place the burden of proof with him over something that hasn't happened yet? He said he fears it could happen. It isn't something that can be proven until it either happens or doesn’t. He can make his case and persuade you, or not, but it is literally...

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    I think it says more about what people want from politicians. I recently saw a discussion in regards to the WE controversy where people were saying, if it isn't illegal then it isn't a problem. The don't expect good behaviour, they expect them to say the right things and not overtly break the law.

    [Split] Discussion: Who is a civilian?

    The difference is choice and I am not sure there is much of a difference anymore. Police, Fire fighters, etc do run towards the danger because are overwhelmingly filled with people who think that way. Soldiers are similar. However, if a police office refuses to enter a building because of the...

    I think it's the latter. I'm currently at 83 weeks with the vast majority of it at stage 3.
