    Another High Ranking TPS Allegedly Behaving Badly

    I mean, it's clear here that you were a part of the problem, and didn't have any qualms turning a blind eye to injustice, as long as you could maintain some thin veneer of plausible deniability. So... what would your proposed solution be? What would you suggest be put in place to ensure that...

    Reconstitution

    Posting people to cities and paying them enough when they're posted there that they can live there comfortably. Stop doing things that are major dissatisfiers, and people won't be dissatisfied. Poor pay is a major dissatisfier. Making them live in shitty places is a major dissatisfier. People...

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    This is the type of insane rambling I'd expect from the tinfoil hat wearing homeless dude downtown. Seeing it from someone who claims to be a Chief is frankly rather disturbing.

    Reconstitution

    The entire concept of the reserves is strange. What other organization in the country would decide that they want to hire a bunch of part time and temp full time workers... and put them all together to run themselves, mostly separate from the main body of the organization? There's nothing...

    Leave Pass Response Time

    My current CO is trying to get us all to replace every memo that doesn't need to be a memo with an e-mail instead. If it's not being forwarded on along with other paperwork to some outside agency, there's no reason to have things on paper. E-mail is vastly superior; ensures that everyone has a...

    Military chief warns China and Russia are 'at war with the West' and Canada is not ready

    All the CDS needs to do is fire one obstinate three star, and folks'll get with the program soon enough.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Sure, because Germany didn't see Russia as a threat to themselves. Perhaps a threat to overall regional stability or peace, but not an existential threat. Did they just get lucky in that regard? I would argue no. Even the worst case scenario, back when we still thought Russia was big strong...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Consider Germany? Actually assess the threat to Germany. Is Russia going to sweep thru Poland and invade Germany (obviously Belarus would let them pass)? No. They can't even take Ukraine, and that's right next door. Germany's not quite as isolated as we are from any current threats, but...

    Cost of housing in Canada

    Supply problems should also be strongly tackled by governments directly: build low income housing.

    Cost of housing in Canada

    I'm firmly convinced that Japan has zoning right; it's jurisdiction of the federal government, not the municipalities. having everything local hands way too much power to the NIMBYs.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Seriously? What the fuck it is with you and the stupid "that's sexist" claim any time someone describes something that overwhelmingly happens to women? 51% of women report it having happened to them. Fifty one fucking percent. Get your head out of your ass and try arguing in good faith for once.

    Cost of housing in Canada

    Nonsense. You don't need equities to survive. You need housing to survive. Driving up the cost of it only benefits those who already own it. It hurts literally everyone else.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Even civilians can request a Victim Liaison Officer (please note this system wasn't in place at the time), although I'm sure that 99.9% of them wouldn't be aware of that fact.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Actually, let me touch upon this again. In your mind, the fact that she was drinking heavily ruins her credibility. Let's follow this line of reasoning to its natural conclusion. Ergo, women who are drinking heavily can't have their testimony trusted. Ergo, it's open season to rape anyone who...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    No shit, people often give abusers more than one chance. This shouldn't be surprising to anyone who's been paying any attention at all.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Seems like a credible story to me. Are you under the impression that that's something that doesn't happen?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Uhhh maybe don't get your info from Law and Order? That's a different country. Police can and do lay charges in Canada; e.g. "Regina Police Service lay charges to Sunday's Amber Alert abductor"

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Simply put, no one here has convinced me that the concerns about the investigation are all that legitimate. I'm not a lawyer nor a police officer, but I was never under the impression that investigating officers are required to interview suspects. No one here has provided any evidence to the...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Does the public ignore military matters because the media doesn't cover it and politicians don't campaign on it, or do the media and the politicians not focus on it because the public doesn't care? I would argue the latter. And honestly, I can't blame...

    Cost of housing in Canada

    Let's not encourage treating housing as a vehicle for investment speculation. Driving up the average cost of housing lowers our collective quality of life.
