    Follow the Science - Or is that Poli Science?

    Well, former Newfoundland premier and Charter signatory Brian Peckford is also suing the government over the travel mandate. His lawyer, Keith Wilson, stated last month that during pre-trial cross examination, PHAC's top epidemiologist stated that they (PHAC) never recommended mandatory...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Humphrey Bogart, what you posted about the changes in wording regarding allergic reactions is quite significant. Although quite rare in the general population, risk of anaphylaxis following vaccination was arguably a significant risk to those with known demographic factors (women with severe...

    New Dress Regs 不

    Well, you also believe that arguments unlikely to pass legal scrutiny (the Oakes Test) are still protected... protected by what exactly, if not the law?

    New Dress Regs 不

    While I'm all for allowing CAF members to have dyed hair, I don't believe that personal appearance is covered under Freedom of Expression. If you're going to expand the legal definition of free expression that far, then you could also argue that any physical act that you take could be...

    New Dress Regs 不

    Got it, I am still unsure which "basic human rights" you are suggesting trans individuals would be denied by Colin's recommendation that the CAF not spend time and resources in "actively recruiting" them. Active recruitment of trans individuals would mean that the CAF spends resources (time...

    New Army recruitment series is a scathing indictment of American society

    Personally, I believe that the CAF's own job advertising needs to do a lot better at highlighting the pay and benefits provided to CAF personnel. The recruiting website (Forces.ca) doesn't even provide a clear description of one's starting wage, let alone a link to the pay scale and description...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    I do. This study uses mathematical models based off of outdated levels of expected vaccine effectiveness (ex. 80% effective against Delta infection), including hypothetical levels of protection against Omicron (the study is dated 14 Dec 2021). It even states that it does not account for...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Apparently the CEO of B'nai Brith has weighed in on the PM's recent comments to MP Melissa Lantsman,: Bnai Brith Canada unequivocally condemns any display of swastikas. We also believe it is not acceptable to respond to a Jewish MPs question in the House of Commons with a comment that can be...

    ROTP RMC Academic Year 2022-23

    What matters is that your name is on the list when selections happen. The amount of time one waits on the list before a selection happens is irrelevant. Ranking compared to others in the selected trade, as well as the number of positions to be filled in the trade, is what matters. Also...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    As I questioned previously, what actual justification do you believe there is for the continuation of these restrictions on citizens based on their vaccination status? What societal benefit is supposed to be achieved? Is it reduced spread of the virus or reduced overall hospitalizations? As I...
