I‘m a little worried this recruiting bonanza will lead to a lower
quality of recruits and training. Hopefully the CF will be able to main
it‘s high standards while still meeting their recruiting requirements.

See also the article in Saturday‘s *Globe and Mail* making more or less the
same point as John‘s CBC segment: Recruiting from non-traditional groups
women, aboriginals, etc. apparently *isn‘t* working all that well,
resulting in lowered standards - precisely Jay‘s point - and apparently
ridiculously high attrition rates, too.
Maybe the CF should make the same concession Communist regimes around the
world have had to make over the past 10 years, or so, and finally admit that
people respond to "economic incentives". In other words, if they want
more/better recruits, they‘re simply going to have to PAY MORE!
Whadday‘all think? Any chance at all the brainiacs at DND and their
political masters will ever figure that one out??? BIG sigh...

See also the article in Saturday‘s *Globe and Mail*, which basically echoes
the point of John‘s CBC segment: Apparently recruiting from
"non-traditional" groups - women, aboriginals, etc. - is both producing
lower standards - Jay‘s point exactly - and resulting in ridiculously high
attrition rates, too.
I wonder when DND is going to getting around to making the same concession
Communist regimes around the globe have had to make over the past decade, or
so? That is, I wonder when they‘re going to catch on to the fact that
"people respond to economic incentives", and that if they want more/better
recruits, they‘re going to have to PAY MORE!
Whadday‘all think? Any chance at all the brainiacs at DND and their
political masters, too will ever grasp the most basic fact taught in
Economics 101???
BIG sigh...

PS - Are there any native Canadians on the list? If so, their input would be
welcome, since I think we‘ve probably already flogged the
"woman thing" Come on down, Art Hanger! to death...

Actually, the pay right now is fairly good especially compared to
labourers/fast food places.

Sounds good to me! Where do I sign up? : - The physical training alone
would probably do me in, I think!
But, then, why all the stories in the press about soldiers Perhaps regular
forces, not reservists? Is that the difference? who are making $16-$18K per
year or whatever, sending their families to food banks, etc., etc.?
And even if the press stories are misleading/wrong, perhaps it‘s this
*perception* that‘s seemingly causing people to stay away in droves?

I must say from my own experiences that women and minorities aren‘t unfairly
treated in the CF. I know this statement will draw fire but it has been my
experience that the female recruits were held to lower standards and not
subjected to the same punishments as the male recruits. The descrepancy was
particularly evident when comparying platoons with female recruits to ones
that had no females. In the same vein, I have never experienced any sort of
racial bigotry in my experience with the CF. Admittedly, we only had one
black recruit in my platoon but he was never treated any differently than
anybody else. If anyone had any racial prejudices towards him they certainly
didn‘t make it evident.
The CF is one of the most progressive militaries in the world when it comes
to the roles of men and women. In many countries women are completely
forbidden from the combat arms where Canada has every trade and position
open to both sexes. I think when you‘re dealing with something as important
as a nation‘s defense you shouldn‘t be worrying about something like racial
and sex quotas. The best candidate for the job should be the one who gets
it. When lives are on the line, racial equity is going to be of little
comfort to someone with a mortal wound that could have been prevented. I‘m
not suggesting that a minority couldn‘t do just as good or a better job than
a white male, but I do think we should ignore this "racist" nonsense and
focus on getting the best recruits.
I think you also have to consider the people applying to the CF. The CF can
target their ads to minorities all they want but the majority of people
applying to the ranks will indoubtedly be white males. You can‘t blame the
CF for this. Since we have such a small military to begin with we need to
focus on quality of the soldier, not colour.
Feel free to fireback but I stand by my opinion. I am not a racist, sexest,
or whatever else you want to call me. I am simply a citizen of this great
country who believes that the criteria for a job should be the skills of the
applicant, not the skin colour, sex, or religion.

All this stuff about a lack of money seems rather unreasonable to me. Many
new recruits I know are rolling in cash and can‘t spend it fast enough. I
imagine when you have a family to take care of your expenses will tend to
catch up with you but the wages aren‘t anywhere near unreasonable.
You can find the pay tables on the DND website somewhere. Rumour is the CF
is getting another raise in April.

I‘m not sure what the pay rates are for regular force privates someone had
posted the website with the pay rates in a while ago.  However, I‘m sure
that they are higher than this.

Jay,
I agree with you. In fact, "the best candidate for the job" is a rule that I
think should be almost universally applied, in every field, including, of
course, the CF.
If it were, then - with the exception of lines of work such as the CF, where
there are in my opinion, anyway bona fide occupational requirements that
make it almost impossible for women to measure up - you would see more women
in top jobs than you do today!
Cheers,
Joan

PS - To prove my point, I should perhaps that add that there have been a few
occasion in my own career where I have found myself in the position of
looking some swaggering - but not very competent - fellow in the eye and
saying, "I don‘t want special treatment. I just want the chance to kick your
a**." The CF are, however, a different story, and, again, I agree with
you...

I must say from my own experiences that women and minorities aren‘t unfairly
treated in the CF. I know this statement will draw fire but it has been my
experience that the female recruits were held to lower standards and not
subjected to the same punishments as the male recruits. The descrepancy was
particularly evident when comparying platoons with female recruits to ones
that had no females. In the same vein, I have never experienced any sort of
racial bigotry in my experience with the CF. Admittedly, we only had one
black recruit in my platoon but he was never treated any differently than
anybody else. If anyone had any racial prejudices towards him they certainly
didn‘t make it evident.
The CF is one of the most progressive militaries in the world when it comes
to the roles of men and women. In many countries women are completely
forbidden from the combat arms where Canada has every trade and position
open to both sexes. I think when you‘re dealing with something as important
as a nation‘s defense you shouldn‘t be worrying about something like racial
and sex quotas. The best candidate for the job should be the one who gets
it. When lives are on the line, racial equity is going to be of little
comfort to someone with a mortal wound that could have been prevented. I‘m
not suggesting that a minority couldn‘t do just as good or a better job than
a white male, but I do think we should ignore this "racist" nonsense and
focus on getting the best recruits.
I think you also have to consider the people applying to the CF. The CF can
target their ads to minorities all they want but the majority of people
applying to the ranks will indoubtedly be white males. You can‘t blame the
CF for this. Since we have such a small military to begin with we need to
focus on quality of the soldier, not colour.
Feel free to fireback but I stand by my opinion. I am not a racist, sexest,
or whatever else you want to call me. I am simply a citizen of this great
country who believes that the criteria for a job should be the skills of the
applicant, not the skin colour, sex, or religion.

All this stuff about a lack of money seems rather unreasonable to me. Many
new recruits I know are rolling in cash and can‘t spend it fast enough. I
imagine when you have a family to take care of your expenses will tend to
catch up with you but the wages aren‘t anywhere near unreasonable.
You can find the pay tables on the DND website somewhere. Rumour is the CF
is getting another raise in April.

Very well...
Should not a section leader beable to carry fire and service the LMG of the
day?
Of course...else how did they get to be a section leader?
Of course, we cannot let Support Coy be an elitist male thing, not can we
restrict the promotional paths of their members either..."being sent to
Support Coy is DOOM"...because no female wants to carry the Carl Gustav,
hump the ammo, pick up the corner of the 106...
because they want the command slots....which, because so many males have
earned them...they need to be politically correctly put into them...where
they can conveniently give the orders, trather than do the work...
Sum up the point, Miss CBC?
Get some time in!
I served with "Ladies"...good honest tough women...who put it out in field
exercises, under the same conditions as the guys in an infantry
battalion...and who freely admitted that they could not get the job done in
an infantry section, let alone a platoon...and please do not suggest an
Infantry Company...not arguing a Service Corps slot...saw of them there, saw
them do the job, appreciated it...and here and now, umpteen years later, I
do not see females in a front line infantry unit doing the job...
Please produce examples beyond that wonderful wimp female that was again on
TV the other night about how she was captured and tied to a tree in
1992...ohhhh...boooo hooo...
But again, I speak with one of zero service..so blowing it off...because if
you are not one whose been there..and I deeply disrespect those that try and
claim something they have not done...
Strange to get so many of your "messages" tonight...and you fail to address
those that are directed to you...stand up or lie
down...Joan/Jesse/Burgess...

John, my dear, what can I say but: "Lay off the green beer, wouldja?"
Apologies if I‘ve posted too much tonight, but I, like you, am working away
on a paper I‘m writing mine for a client who needs some market research
done and am looking for ways to distract myself/procrastinate, including -
I fear - mouthing off on this list.
Peace, man.

I made 17k a year as a corporal, in 1982, I think the pay has gone up since
then....
If it is all about money, then by all means go out and be a lawyer..
But if you want a career, full training, for your whole career, guaranteed
employment, diversity of tasks, pride, and good friends.......
To be paid to go to university..RMC or college various programs for
NCM‘s, then drop down to the recruiters.
when I joined, the last thing on my mind was money, but I was single young,
and had no children.  I knew they paid me enough to save a little and buy
some toys, when I was promoted, then I recieved more.  Todays recruits often
come into the forces carrying huge baggagefinacially.  In 1978, they would
not let you join if you were in debt up to your ears, or if you were over
weight, or had a drinking problem, etc.  It was hard enough just carrying
arouind the baggage they gave you.
I don‘t think the enlisted ranks should be filled with university students,
who compare it to GM, Bombardier, or other commercial outfits.

I really don‘t understand why there are so many complaints about the pay in
the forces!!!  How many people would be able to go out into civy street and
