    New Dress Regs 不

    After 57 pages of this discussion, 2 things have become apparent. The first is that the discussion has been about the appearance of professionalism on the one side vs whether or not some is professional. The appearance side has given a lot of examples of people who look unprofessional to the...

    New Dress Regs 不

    It used to cost like 200 dollars for a complete new uniform. Guys didn't save their allowance and couldn't afford a new uniform out of a standard pay check. As a result, they just squeezed their fat asses into the uniform they were issued at basic.

    New Dress Regs 不

    I brought that up in a town hall recently. Every base and unit have always a slightly different standard despite the dress regs being pretty black and white (more so 20 years ago). The toques and gloves thing is a prime example, it hasn't been in the dress regs for well over a decade yet every...

    New Dress Regs 不

    In the 70s and 80s they beat the crap out of you but they didn't have the retention and recruiting issues we have. I think we need to look at what they had to keep them in that we don't have.

    New Dress Regs 不

    I agree. That is why I think this is dangerous.

    New Dress Regs 不

    From the announcement: They asked a bunch of kids. Kids don't know shit about shit and have no place in the discussion. I know that makes me sound old and God damn it I don't care. Why don't I ask a bunch of 13 year olds about tax policy while I'm at it.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canadas military spending

    The AWS trade is basically dead at this point. Because we are so short on the bottom, they are capping promotions at the same time an entire generation of members are becoming pensionable. People are getting out because they don't see any growth individually or as a trade. Last I checked the...

    Medical Release ( merged )

    That is the biggest problem. I do what needs to be done, that is who I am at my core. I guess I just have to get over it and let things go undone if need be.

    Medical Release ( merged )

    I need some advice. A little background to start: I'm over 70% disabled according to VAC and my 20 comes due in about a year. My problem is that I don't ever see a point where I won't be able to do my job due to my injuries. I still go to the gym almost every day and I can still out 'physical' a...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    You're the expert here but I think one of the issues is that military law does have exactly the same aim as civilian law. From my understanding, military law is supposed to punish people quickly and get them back in the fight as soon as possible. Civilian law is more about protecting the rights...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The average age for a Sgt(E-5) in the US Army is 22 with 4.5 years in. They have roughly the same level of authority as a MCpl. If your system is robust, you can get away with it because they should be supported from above. The problem I see is a) our system is weak and getting weaker, b) our...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I agree there has to be a line where it goes straight to staff. Staffing a leave pass? 100% with in the capabilities of a Cadet. Initiating a sexual harassment investigation? That needs to go to staff immediately. I can't argue that RMC doesn't add anything but in theory it should.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The whole point of going to a military college is to be put in positions of progressively more authority to develop your leadership skills before you lead troops. Maybe the problem is that there needs to be oversight and people who abuse their authority need to be dealt with harshly up to and...

    Resort CEO told women at B.C. conference to 'go clean some rooms and do some dishes'

    Are you all so completely oblivious as to the concept of humour that I have to break down why someone might think this was funny? Ok here goes. He is speaking at an event celebrating women in the workplace. That is the opposite of being in the kitchen. By saying 'get back in the kitchen", he is...

    Resort CEO told women at B.C. conference to 'go clean some rooms and do some dishes'

    It was clearly a bad joke. Can we stop pretending he meant it seriously? He wasn't laughing at the women there, he was making a joke at how far things have come. It's the kind of joke you make around a couple of friends who know you not in the opening remarks of a conference. Doesn't mean he is...
