    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    This is why my department did guided discussions with a max attendance of 10, and had a Sgt leading it. We had very interesting chats, and could hash out what inappropriate conduct was, without a CWO/MWO in the corner "gargoyling" over things.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The training needs to be enhanced, for sure. OP Honour briefs I attended were heavy on the "don't commit crimes"(ie. don't rape), and light on the "lets make the workplace better by being professional, and treating each other with respect". We wasted a lot of time and effort by focusing on the...

    The Forgotten Battle | Official trailer | Netflix

    I think that would have made for a better movie. I wonder if "Market Garden" got thrown in to help tie it to a more famous battle, and as an excuse to get a recognizable actor in for part of the movie.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    While I agree with what you said, I think there is a danger in framing this as an exclusively a "male" problem. I was harassed by a female staff member while on course, and the perception that men can't be harassed definitely lead to me not saying anything at the time. In the end I was fine...

    The Forgotten Battle | Official trailer | Netflix

    I just finished watching the movie. It was entertaining, but once again Canada takes a back seat to Britain. Even in the end when the Canadians make the push, the character we follow is a Brit... As good as the movie is, I'm not impressed by the way Canada is sidelined in it's main event.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    100% Just because the result you wanted isn't the end result of an an investigation, does not meant the investigation was flawed. I don't know the CDS, but he raised a valid point... If there is no return after an accusation, why even investigate anything? Fire all accused, and in a year the...

    Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations for the Federal Public Service and RCMP

    While the data presented may be factually correct WRT the TB policy, it is presented out of context, in such a way that it is giving a false idea to viewers. That's either an error, or an intentional decision to inflame people in order to generate views/shares.

    Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations for the Federal Public Service and RCMP

    I saw that link posted elsewhere yesterday, and can point out one massive error, the CAF is definitely included in the vaccine mandate. A message from the A/CDS and DM was sent to all DWAN/O365 accounts about it on Friday, telling us we have until the 29th to complete our attestation form.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    My understanding is it's more a career shop/DGMC thing... The CMs are overworked, and under appreciated, so I can see how things might slip though. That said, the CAF needs the power to go back, and amend release conditions when things slip through.

    RCAF Chinook in Oshawa

    Even as a Met Tech when we wore work dress I tried to ensure I never wore the same uniform components two days in a row... My MCpl Hated me, but I was always properly turned out, just in a different combination of uniform items every day.

    What to Do With Contrarians?

    You've just described pretty much every meeting I have been part of, particularly the ones where I was part of the "hive mind". :ROFLMAO:

    What to Do With Contrarians?

    It is always interesting to be in a meeting where we are discussing a problem, and the "groupthink" comes back to doing more of the same things that aren't working, because most agree they are the right decision. Now that I'm in a position that requires me to sit in on a lot of meetings, I...

    SHOES FOR OFFICERS AND CWO

    I even went so far as to buy the SWAT oxfords at the Canex. They are more comfortable than the issued ones, and only require a wipe down to get the dust/dirt off them. If I was sure about how much longer I'll be around I'd likely buy quality leather oxfords to wear daily, but the SWAT ones...

    Met Tech Info?

    We restructured the trade back in the middle of Afghanistan, and built a single world wide briefing/deployment centre... The idea was to have one base that would support all deployed ops, while also doing most of the routine domestic support. It meant we could pool our fit people in one...

    Met Tech Info?

    I believe the next course is in January or July of next year. My current position isn't in the training realm, so I'm not up to date on the latest information. As a general rule Met Tech courses start in January, and July, as the course is about 5.5 months long. OJT is normally in Gagetown...

    CFB Cold Lake Thread- Merged

    Maybe, I'm not 100% familiar with all trades, but the general rule is the CM cuts the message and posts the member. Unless the RCAF has come up with a policy that bypasses DGMC, I'm pretty sure they function under the same general system the rest of the CAF does. At the pointy end it may seem...

    CFB Cold Lake Thread- Merged

    For a normal posting I'd agee, but the local rep isn't the one that will be speaking with a member rejoining. It's the recruiting centre, and a CM that handle a member getting back in as far as I'm aware. My contact in the CM world just left the job a week ago, but based on our last discussion...

    CFB Cold Lake Thread- Merged

    Not 100% accurate. Local staff may attach post people between units, but the CM is the one who posts people to specific positions. Every in-trade position is managed by the MC, and I believe upon rejoining the CM is the one that designates the position number/position. Local staff may do an AP...

    Met Tech Info?

    I'm not sure of that's a compliment, or a dig at everyone else lol. It was a pleasure working for/with you, a definite stand-out experience in my career. Sailing as a Snr Met Tech was one of the best experiences of my career, and one of the few times that it felt like my training and...

    Met Tech Info?

    I'm still a Met Tech, and willing to chat about the trade. I'm currently out of town on an inspection trip, but I'm willing to reply to posts, or you can PM me to arrange a time to chat.
