    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    If it was that easy, the CAF would have sorted it out with the CDS Directive issued last week. Or... Is it lack of backbone or realizing the direction to put people on LWOP is stupid and overly punitive? If we want to change the Medical Standard to require COVID-19 vaccination, do that. It...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    That's what happens when you make up crap on the fly without a cabinet to issue an OIC change to the QR&Os to allow members to be forced onto LWOP. It'll be interesting to see if they try that, seeing as how we paid Russell Williams while he was pending trial but because someone is "unclean"...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    IMBITRs are not Type 1 capable, says right on their website. The 148D will be Type 1 capable once it gets NSA certification. There's nothing wrong with the 163, it's a 152A glued to a Type 1 TSM SDR. It has significantly more upside than the 148D, but we wouldn't go wrong with either. CAF has a...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    IMBITRs aren't future proof if your future includes Type 1 voice and data comms. CA is buying PRC-163 radios which is a Type 1 TSM-X capable 152A. What CA hasn't realized, is they're double the cost of a 152A. Champagne tastes, Labatt 50 budget...

    Correlation does not equal causation.

    New sea service cap for sailors

    Doesn't have enough velcro that says NAVY MARINE or giant Ensigns.

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    Literally everything we do is backed up by a written down policy. The QR&Os are our collective bargaining agreement. It provides that legal backing to conduct administration in the CAF. If the PM is issuing this direction, the CDS should be asking for an OIC QR&O change to support it. By not...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    You're making an assumption. There's plenty of reasons folks don't want it. Brow beating them, taking thier pay away and dehumanizing them by labeling them anti-vaxxers seems like it's working though, right? I guess it's just like our COVID-19 lockdown and mask measures. It hasn't stopped 3...

    Disobeying an unlawful/unethical order - Mandatory Vaccinations

    It's not pretty easy. Under what QR&O or CBI can someone be placed against thier will on LWOP? We have people credibility accused of murder and sexual assault who still were paid while the process played out. What legal basis will the CAF have to justify stopping someone's pay who worked in...

    Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations for the Federal Public Service and RCMP

    No, it's not. If you read down in the email spam, it links to the TB Policy and the CAF is clearly labeled as an exlcusion. CAF members have their own administration system that's very different from a civilian public servant so if the CAF ia going to make a rule it will have to leverage those...

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    I'm fairly certain Grn Petawawa would have gotten JAG advice before clarifying thier policy is only non-DND civilians are required to prove vaccination. The only thing military members are asked for is thier ID if they're in civvies.

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    Thanks for the"shut up and do what you're told" answer, super helpful. Back to reality, workplaces are exempt vaccination proof requirements in Ontario. You're suggesting we've created Shrondingers Mess where they're both simultaneously a workplace for harassment purposes but not a workplace for...

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    DND considers the messes and gyms as part of the workplace for harassment policy purposes, ergo they cannot ask for vaccine status. Only people that get asked are non-DND civilian associates.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Strong suspicion a S1/Cpl wouldn't have been granted that Voluntary Release with a 5F pending, especially now. The nepotism is real.
