Un-fucking-believable. The more they prattle on about this bullshit, the more it will appear to be a "major problem". Its like a child with a cut on their finger over analyzing it and imagining how horrible it is and thinking how much it hurts.
Yes, I did just compare DND to a child, because this to me is huge political distraction, nothing else.
Along those lines, the Vancouver Military Dinner takes place in a couple of weeks.
It used to be a good dinner, but this time they've gone 'full woke'. I suggested that they bring in a Ukrainian General to talk about how to fight against the Russian and win. They had other ideas...
For the record, I'm a big fan of EDI improvement efforts. But when it overtakes everyone else's interests it stops being 'equitable', which is ironic.
From the 1950s to the mid-1990s, LGBTQ2+ Canadian Armed Forces members and federal public servants were systemically discriminated against, harassed, and often fired as a matter of policy and sanctioned practice. This period of Canadian history has come to be known as the 'LGBT Purge', affecting an estimated 9000 Canadians who only wished to serve the country and institutions that they admired.
Our 2023 Featured Organization is Rainbow Veterans of Canada (RVC). RVC is a federally-recognized non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that those affected by the 'Purge' and CAF veterans who identify as LGBTQ2+ are given the recognition, respect, and support they justly deserve for their service to Canada. In addition to advocating for 'Purge' survivors - and LGBTQ2+ veterans and CAF members more broadly - RVC promotes education, awareness, and respect for the lived experiences of affected veterans and CAF members.
The 9th Annual Vancouver Military Dinner will take place on April 6th, 2024! Learn about our guests, featured organization, and more!
