    The Defence Budget [superthread]

    Or perhaps I find the results of the policy to be unsatisfactory? I will admit that the sentence about the MND was off-base and comes more from my frustration of the system and the poor overall results we have achieved in the military file. It amazes me that we cannot issue basic items to...

    The Defence Budget [superthread]

    Very true.

    The Defence Budget [superthread]

    I'll believe it when it happens. Just because they are finally starting to realize how much we are starving for more money to actually conduct decent training and to be able to procure modern kit for said training does not mean they will do anything about it. Call me cynical but this could...

    Three Canadian Rangers missing in Northern Alberta

    I hope that they are found safe and sound.  :cdn:

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    Absolutely you can argue that the world wars crippled the economies of Europe, I would agree with that. I would argue that those economies had recovered and in the majority of cases improved from pre-war conditions by the mid-70's. Would you not say that there is innovation around the world in...

    Army.ca Staff Reset

    I would also like to join those above me in thanking the moderators for their contributions and time committed to making this place the success that it is.

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    I gave it a shake, situation no change. This world event does not necessarily have to be a global conflict with massive loss of life such as the world wars. I am talking about an event that unifies Canadians (and to a greater extent Western civilizations) towards a common purpose. An event...

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    This generation needs a world event to happen that causes significant hardship. There will be less worrying about whether or not buddy who murdered and then ate said person is receiving their chocolate bar at every jail meal and is having visits out to the town.

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    Does the defence of Canada and her laws regarding personal rights and freedoms count as providing professional advice/assistance to a social justice issue?

    Legal Pot for Canada (and the taxes from it)

    I am not a fan of setting the legal age for the use of substances above the age you legally become an adult and can vote. The idea that the state views you as being mature enough to be able to vote and help change the direction of the country, yet not mature enough to make a personal decision...

    CF moving to Multicam?

    Absolutely I include those as well. Same here, I like the old style pants better too...

    CF moving to Multicam?

    Looks absolutely ridiculous. This whole fascination with velcro (whoops, I mean hook and loop) is mind boggling. Buttons are much more quiet and they rarely open up when you brush against something, velcro on the other hand...

    Not even the buyer knows that information.  ;D

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    Is that not the benefit of capitalism? Constantly having to meet targets, innovate, become more efficient, etc. that is how our society progresses. Not having "too big to fail" corporate entities that simply reap the benefits of those who succeed through their determination, knowledge and...

    Verifying ID Cards

    I seem to remember a single "holographic" image on my old one. Hopefully someone who is more familiar with them will be able to chime in.

    Op UNIFIER - CAF and the Ukraine Crisis

    There is there fatal flaw, relying on Canada to assist them in this. I give the Ukrainians 3 years before they are eventually parcelled off into mother Russia.  :P

    GBA+ training

    The first part is reasonable, though not for the reason you state. It shouldn't matter if the soldier is Japanese, if any soldier is looking after their parents that is a consideration that should be kept in mind. As far as posting someone into the middle of nowhere... Should considerations be...

    Interesting bit of history, thanks for that!

    GBA+ training

    Apologies, my post wasn't clear. When I stated those that matter I meant all the government folks who use the naming and framing of programs to gain political points. I have taken the "training", I personally think it is a poor excuse for the word training, like jarnhamar I felt the Bystander...

    Politics in 2017

    I sometimes watch Question Period (I know, I really must have nothing to do  :P) and you will find members of both sides continuously making a loud raucous that prevents the other side from speaking thus requiring the Speaker of the House to shush them like children. Or you have the pointless...
