Attacked Recruiters

Two friends of mine were the ones that got hassled by some student union
members.  The same happened to me last year when we were there, but not to
that degree.  I only got the usual stupid questions "Do I have to eat feces
to enter?", "What kind of hazing is involved".  The recruting Sgt. did get
a letter of apology that stated that actions would be taken against the
individuals involved.  But I dpubt anything will come of it.  These are the
same ones that harassed some guys from CFSIS the week before.  Not a bright
thing to do in my opinion.

Sadly this kind of thing is common at a lot of schools.  Concordia doesn‘t
surprise me for having it happen, and my own school Trent would quite
possibly pose the same problem for recruiters though not in a violent
manner were they to try to set up there.  Sadly there are people in the
world foolish enough to engage in such disgraceful displays.

What can I say about my dearest student colleaques from Concordia part that the
Student Union and
some """""""""militants students """"""""""" sometimes go a bit too far.
Three weeks ago, I pass in front of a stand about "demilitarized Quebec city" I
was
wearing a regimental sweat shirt and they noticed me, thanx god the situation
relaxed when I continue my way
and I did a LARGE smile to them,
thats remind me
a couple of years ago, manifested in one of the engineer career recruiting day,
they arrived in front of Oerlikon and treated them of Nazi, of Racist because
Oerlikon
"cooperated with the Germans during WWII", but most of the peoples working
there, where not even born
at that time, they continued, insulted them and little pushs came over until the
manager of the stand decided it was enought, since that day, Oerlikon is no more
recruiting graduates from Concordia and don‘t even think to apply there, when
you a Concordia graduate :
But the events of last week were published in a couple of Montreal newspapers,
with the ugly faces of the protesters in cover :o

Well put Ian.  I am reminded that that the veterans of the two World Wars
and even Korea came home to an ungrateful country.  I have some Canadian
Vietnam Vet friends who got a double whammy when they returned home.

Last year 4 RCR and 1 H did a week long recruiting drive on the UWO Campus.
Every day that week they had a Cougar parked in the middle of the most
trafficked part of campus with a tent and recruiting stand a few feet away.
It only took a few hours for the first protester to climb up on top of the
cougar with a big sign that said "Get the Murdering Machine off my Campus."
>From that point on there was always someone not to far away with a sign
deploring how horrible it was that Canada would allow itself to have
something as evil as that tank heheh, a cougar being called a tank.  It was
funny the first time I heard a reservist crewman call one a tank and it
still is, because they believe it.
I think the problem is naivety.  These people have never been off Sesame St,
let alone outside North America.  They don‘t seem to realise that some
nations/groups still see war through Clausewitz‘s eyes as an acceptable
means to any political end.  They don‘t understand that smiles and free
flowers will not protect aid-workers in a war zone.  They don‘t understand
there are many uses for the military in peaceful aid-to-the-civilpower
operations that their lives may one day depend on.  And, they do not
understand that WE ARE NOT the American Army in Vietnam!

In Canada, people certainly have the right to voice an opinion.  I just
don‘t think that they have the right to be rude about it I sound so
CANADIAN don‘t I?.

Sort of like Oliver Wendell Holmes who said freedom of speech doesn‘t give
you the right to yell fire in a crowded play house.
Detractors can make their points without resorting to actions like this.

So much of this "protesting", is just posturing to impress friends and the
opposite sex.  Most of them have no core beliefs or values, so they borrow
ones that are popular, and fit in with their crowd.
That murdering machine was probably present on a peacekeeping mission, in
its short life......
In ten years they will be buying stock in GM, or working at the Locomotive
works in London, Ont.
while they have the right to protest, they also have the right to know the
truth..  Unfortunately, it is up to them to find it.  They are exposed to
one version of life on many campuses, and it can take years to develop a
informed opinion.
will it ever change.........?...Not in my lifetime, but we will all live
long enough to see most of these protesters change their attitudes, do an
about face and fullfill their hypocratic destiny.......Reference the hippies
who became yuppies in our country and the USA

J-F,
Thanks for the change of pace from silly to serious. The situation you‘re
describing, while not surprising, does strike me as *incredibly* offensive
not to mention narrow-minded.
I‘m sure you have your own ways of dealing with this kind of B.S., but
here‘s another idea, just in case you run out: Next time the student paper
at Concordia is going on and on about limitations on free speech,
discrimination against minorities, etc. And, if it‘s like most papers on
most other Canadian university campuses, it probably does this a lot! you,
or some other CF-involved student, should fire off a letter pointing out how
completely acceptable it seems to be for a bunch of "radical" yahoos to try
to shut down the "speech" and legitimate business activities of recruiters
operating on campus and/or how "discriminated against" and certainly
disrespected you and other members of the "military minority" at Concordia
are.
*If* they condescend to print your letter assuming of course, that you have
the time and energy to waste waging such losing battles - maybe you have
more of a life than I do, and therefore don‘t want to waste too much time
worrying about this stuff! : , you can then sit back and watch the hate
mail roll in in reply... Fun, huh?
Hang in there,
Joan

This topic is a very touchy one at best.  In the PRes one of the main concerns of each unit is recruiting.
I‘m sad to say but when I was at the U of Regina at a stand the sam ething happened however, I was stupid enough to sink to their level.  While it was a bad stupid, retarded move, it did give me some insight.  When we say "I hope to live to see them change their beliefs,"  it won‘t happen.  They say the exact same thing while they sit in their parents basement smoke up.  It would be like us turning against the military.  I just can‘t see it happening, protesting is turning into a new religion for the brainwashed.

J-F -
I can understand why you don‘t want to/can‘t be bothered trying to strike
back in the way I‘ve suggested - you‘re right, it would probably just result
in more abuse being heaped on you, and who needs that???
I do a bunch of different things to make a living, and among them are
research and writing mostly book reviews, personality profiles, etc. on a
freelance basis. But way back when I was a student, I did a bit of student
journalism, and even then, the narrow-minded silliness that passed for a
"politically correct" philosophy made me ill because it was so blindered and
smug.
Since it was especially bad in student journalist circles, I got pretty good
at being creative about how to fight against the nonsense and/or how present
other points of view in spite of pretty heavy resistance sometimes, and am
always happy to share my tactics/experience with anyone who‘s having to put
up with similar B.S., for whatever reason.
So, again - hang in there!
Joan
