I don't personally agree with this; should all of us in the CAF 'jump the queue'? Probably not. Should we if it can have an actual detrimental affect on operational capability? In that case, I say yes.
- Divers, aircrew, submariners are examples of some fairly specialized, hard-to-replace quickly NCMs and Officers who might be considered higher priority. Our SOF community...another example. Not only is the training to get them operational costly...we have fairly low numbers of all in those specialties pan-CAF. Should that apply to anyone who is in an aircrew MOSID? Nope...just the ones occupying designated flying positions. Same for navy divers, submariners, etc. It might be some overheard to manage (more so on the Army side, to identify/forecast high readiness units and manning) but...it might work.
Jimmy or Jane, the postie working 8-4 with no forecasted deployments in the 'expected waiting time in their province'? Not so much of a requirement for excelled timeline healthcare, IMO.
Of course...the CAF could open up something like NDMC again, and offer everything possible in terms of specialist care...not holding my breath on that one.
