I agree with you. I probably should have clarified, I believe the CF needs to fully integrate the Reg and Res structure - which will probably mean zero room for any Res Officers above Maj for some time - and very few NCO's above WO.No. Not on your life. There is no way we could develop the right kind of leaders, above the rank of Major/MWO or so, to man such a formation - alone - in the reserves.
If you have a Reg F Bde that is 'augmented' with Reservists, then that might work. Over the course of 10-15 years you could then try to grow the reserve capabilities to staff up complimentary units, possible to BGp size.
As the experience level grows - and a new reserve system gets implemented - that could change.
