That’s the sad reality of all of this. Most Canadians have no real idea who these people are. All they see is another general stepping down due to some controversy and that the CAF has a sexual harassment problem.Historically resigning to protest government policy hasn't worked in the slightest in Canada. A plethora of GOFOs resigned during the unification of the armed forces of Canada, didn't change the direction of the government at all. Since then there have been several officers who have resigned for one reason or another. VAdm Chuck Thomas comes to mind (yes, the father of the current DM) and his actions barely registered. Canadians don't care about the CAF, we could self immolate and most Canadians would barely notice.
So with the CAF’s reputation in tatters, leadership replaced and or shuffled, the government of the day may see a target rich environment for cutting after accumulating an immense amount of debt over the last few years.
