    High Ranking Police Folk Allegedly Behaving Badly

    My obvious questions are... - How does a rape conviction take 8 bloody years? - Why still employed after a drug trafficking charge? - Why would a police union/association still want someone like that around? Sucking up police resources when that person could be replaced by someone who isn't...

    No more rifles on drill/grad parade?

    I know I'm a bit late to this show... But for those of us with time in, a few deployments under our belts (even combat deployment) - some (most) of us are old enough to be your distant big brother, father, or grandfather... "New rifle drill compared to the old, you say?" <Insert confused old...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    She's beautiful tho... 😯🥰😍 And if everything goes according to plan, not just replacing the tankers with MRTT, but also an increase in capacity... I'm just so shocked & happy to see this, I'm full of warm fuzzies!

    2023 UCP Alberta election

    The timing seems interesting to me... Not a peep about the Residential Schools since the last election, and now that we're about a year out from another election, the feds are finally taking some initiative in the matter... Hmmmmmmmmm 🧐

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Kind of related, kind of not... My understanding was Airbus bought a 51% stake in the Bombardier C-series. Could Bombardier use that airframe for this idea, rather than the Global? (I'm still advocating for the P-8 for both operational & political reasons. Just wondering about the...

    2023 UCP Alberta election

    I figured I'd quote you both on this one, just for context... I'm with Quirky on his post, because as much as we may not like to address the incredibly silent elephant in that room - I think we are all waiting for those test results along with him. It's NOT a matter of denying that...

    2023 UCP Alberta election

    I don't think she would deny the existence of Residential Schools. (If she said something along those lines, I totally missed it.) I think she'd go the opposite direction, as she tends to move to the beat of Trudeau's drum on most issues. I think she'd focus on that, say all the right things...

    Canada needs a climate-emergency response team

    Absolutely mind boggling that in an age where fire season seems to start earlier & earlier, and end up with bigger fires threatening more communities — this is the area governments across the board choose to cut It isn’t an occasional thing. Every year, we have massive forest fires. Every...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    It would have been wasted money either way, for the reasons given. The Australian F-18’s needed modernization, and cost us a pretty penny. But the F-35 - as the plane was when we first hummed about buying 65 - were going to leave us in a world of hurt also…and a probably more expensive...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    I’ve seen the odd course video (I think it’s course video anyway) and yeah, there’s a bunch of bright orange dudes doing free fall in them

    High Ranking Police Folk Allegedly Behaving Badly

    Damnit, you’re right. When I think back to when I did my EMT course, a huge chunk of our scenarios were based on MVC’s or something similar, and securing/treating patients at high density events (concerts, hockey games, etc) where all of a sudden, every single chic within eyesight is a bloody...

    2023 Layoff Tracker: Latest Meta Cuts Could Hit 4,000

    Any organization that can grow by 31% while offering the same level of service as it did before (or in some cases, worse service) is excessively bloated. Agreed.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Please forgive the delayed question here, re Kingfisher The CC-295 Kingfisher is based off of a mature platform thats in service with other nations…is it not? I know deliveries started last year, but are we having difficulties or challenges in using them as intended?

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    The per unit acquisition cost back then was substantially more than it is now. The computers & systems in those early lot aircraft aren’t even compatible with the computers & systems that go into current aircraft rolling off the assembly line…heck the airframes themselves have actually changed...

    If you think the CAF is FUBAR, Germany says hold my beer.

    A step in the right direction?? With their budget woes & annual list of complaints, I feel like this skyrockets them to…somewhere 🤷🏼‍♂️ 60 Chinooks is an amazingly formidable airlift capability on the battlefield! But that’s also going to cost a lot of maintenance $$…maintenance $$ they don’t...

    2023 UCP Alberta election

    Voting Day is coming up, and people are starting to answer the polls & be more active in their responses…is my guess Think of how much we all dislike Trudeau. Now imagine someone else gets elected who - while some folks will always complain - is the opposite of Trudeau in a bunch of good...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I think it's the image that China would be sending to the world. In this case, China would be the party helping to facilitate negotiations to end the largest war in Europe since WW2, and the most destructive war since Korea. It would be China helping to bring aboit a cease fire, or peace. Not...
