    Multicam was the brand he wanted, but after gestation his new-colours came out as new CADPAT.

    Afghan Interpreters, Others Fast-tracking to Canada

None of those Canadians would have necessarily been in Afghanistan under any contractual relation with the Government of Canada.

    The new CADPAT was one of Vance’s babies. He lamented in the news that troops were deploying to the Middle East in over-worn arid CADPAT and, as you know, when the supply system is failing to replace worn-out kit then you fix the problem by changing the colour.

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Log, RCEME, and Sigs can all be posted between various units & sub-units in all the big army & navy bases. Yes, some occupations have to move more because they are more distributed in smaller numbers to support everywhere. But, I have known cooks, clerks, and maintainers to spend as long in one...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    It is not that Cbt Arms can’t deal with some geographic instability and the need for occasional moves. Every occupation has some requirement to move, but the vast majority of occupations can move people between between different units & sub-units inside of a single geographic location. This...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    As much as regimental politics currently demands that everyone get an equal slice of pie, this is the worst possible way to mitigate. The geographic career stability of the current regimental system would be completely gone. The multi-capbadge structure of your armoured units would be prone to...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Because an Army reorg plan is only going to tinker with Army assets. 1 Div is not Army, it is CJOC.

    But the different uniform colours need all those orgs to check the box on formation command for more potential 2-leafs.

    Afghan Interpreters, Others Fast-tracking to Canada

    I watched his presentation when it was being broadcast live. Maybe it was a message that a PM or minister should have delivered, but Eyre delivered the message that the country needed to hear. He nailed it, and anyone else would have dropped the ball.

    And other professions also use balance of probabilities to publicly administer discipline. There is nothing controversial here. https://www.apega.ca/docs/default-source/pdfs/discipline-decisions/discipline/2019-02-14-apega-discipline-decision-17-015-fh.pdf?sfvrsn=50369a86_2

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    If you want to be CDS (again) and have your lawyers publish a statement like that, you are misrepresenting the profession’s disciplinary process and undermining the public’s confidence in the institution’s ability to police itself. Not really a great CoA.

    He is forcing the government to take a position. Either come out and explicitly remove him, or do nothing and passively show acceptance.

    It would be punishable under s 130 of the NDA, so would that not mean there is no US jurisdiction granted by your second quote? And where the ship is considered sovereign to Canada, an act committed on the ship would would have been in a space excluded from US territory, which means no US...
