    Is the system Broken?

    I have a few issues with VAC, and this is how I find the system is broken. 1. Zero Accountability- If files are lost, taking to long, there is no internal way to have them sped up or answers provided. This includes lost mail etc. - My case in point, PTSD reassess was supposed to start Oct 15...

    On 202 Workshop: inefficiencies and underperformance

    Calian for POET was great, most were former military and understood the game. Training wise for Courses I do not mind Calian, most are retired, or Med release members that know and understand the inner workings. I'm not a fan of the Civilian employees like the ones in the 202 DA. Im not a fan...

    Commentary "Why No One Should Join the Canadian Forces"

    Came across this article, Some of it I can see as being true. I did not know about the limit of 49 rounds per soldier, but that seems a bit exaggerated. I understand the need to cut back, and save, but when we spend just as much money on our military as Spain? What does that say? As...

D MIL C turned around and altered the decision on his release due to the state of the trade. Its a...

    Why aren't Civilian Justice and Mil Justice tied together closer

    I have noticed now on several occasions whati will call failures- Sexual Assaults, Attacks, DUIs etc not brought forth to the Civilian Justice system, Mostly when the MPs are involved, even down to the point where a member was told do not bring this forth to a Civilian Police Force(hinting...

    CNR(E)/CSB (split from: Army Communication & Information Systems Specialists)

    Learned a bit more about this CNR(E)/CSB Etc. So let me get this straight- A more complex, harder to fault find system, Harder to repair system (2nd Line), Very "finnicky", Harder to program...... Amidst all these changes, This is gonna be a rough go. :facepalm:
