There are very good discussions below this post that discuss if you're willing to put forth the effort, do the search, and read.

Like, yes....only a reporter wold come into a war zone without a means of defence, no such thing as a consciencous objector in the current Canadian military.

and no we don't fight, we use them in defence of ourselves and our patients and mandated by the Geneva conventions.

follow infanteers advice and search for more info.

There was as recently as last year a CANFORGEN that dealt with conscientious objectors.

really?
That'll give me something to look up.

If you know where it is can you post it up here?

at the threat of pulling this off the tracks....if we are not at war, how can you object?

I'm on pre-deployment leave right now, so I don't have access to the DIN. I seem to recall that it was last year, sometime near the middle of the year. Failing that, it was the previous year.

Was into work for one last visit... here's the reference for the CANFORGEN on conscientious objectors:

CANFORGEN 076/03 ADMHRMIL 030 101656Z JUN 03
