Are their any employers who financially support the families of ones who commit suicide?
It is sad, but is it a burden that the Canadian forces should be expected to bear? Canada has systems in place to help people in a tough spot, yes, they may leave a lot to be desired.. but things exist for people to reach out and get. We also have social systems in place to make sure no one starves.. so how much burden should the Canadian forces bear? I prefer we bolster our mental health support for all Canadians, bolster our re training and access to education for career changes, bolster our support for widowers, single parents, married couples trying to better themselves etc and leave the Canadian forces to do their job and only that when the Canadian forces get deployed, I want them to only care about us staying safe at home and able to pontificate from our computers online.. not worry about all this other stuff. Doesnt mean they won't or don't care, but let them do their job and let other departments take care of what they can or should.
