From the accounts that I've read, the former members of CAR who talk about it tend to say "it was all the fault of a few guys from a different parent regiment". They all got tarred with the same brush however.
That was the sense I got. I'm told that all the guys in the unit got shipped to the north of Canada for an exercise while the disbandment parade was held with stand-ins to avoid it kicking off. That can't have helped the sense of anger.
