    I feel like other people have been banned for less?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I supposed that this wouldn't affect the investigation on the military side.

    Prince Philip Passed Away

    I'm guessing that we will also be observing the moment of silence next Saturday, although I don't know how many units might actually be training or operating that day.

    NDP to debate phasing out Canada’s Armed Forces at policy convention

    Well that's the difference between Fascism and Socialism. In Fascism a certain group of people is denied rights, in Socialism, everyone is.

    Truly sad news.

    Malaysia Airliner Disappearance

    I still think that they ended up on an island with polar bears.

    Irish Regiment of Canada Kilts

    Allegedly, a while ago, a former CO of my unit gave a civilian pipe band permission to wear our kilt (something that he cannot do because he is not the clan chieftain). Needless to say, there are a few people who are upset with it.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I think that Op Honour failed because it attempted to treat the symptoms while ignoring the disease. It felt like Op Honour was more a list of don't: rape, assault, rude comments, etc. It might have worked better if it was more of a lists of do's. The CAF is representative of the Canadian...

    Pay Raise 2021

    Is there anyway that this could have been given on a separate pay so that it did not cause everyone to be taxed at a significantly higher level?

    Acting Nice for Politics Sake (HMCS Calgary in Brunei)

    I think that that is pretty much standard procedure. It's not up to the military to make political based decisions about which ports to make Facebook posts about.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I wonder if we are actually going to finally see policies and regulations about service relationships. I'm sure there are some already there, but they have been ignored for years. This is an issue that occurs at every rank level. Some people are professional about it, others aren't. What...

    So no more Op Honour. Without using that name, is anything actually going to be different?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I don't think that we are at that point. I've only spoken to a few people outside the military about this (mostly due to covid) and they have recognized that the recent positions shuffles have been because of the actions of two people. We don't even know what one of those people has been...

    Do they even have the capacity to do that at that location?
