Allegations against jr officers don’t earn the same cash settlements or publicity as going after a Colonel or General does.....Does anyone have a take on the sheer number of VSO's in the CAF that are currently on a sticky wicket. It seems like a weekly issue that the media comes up with yet another general in the sh*t. I realise its half a dozen or so, but what the hell?
Adm McDonald was cleared through investigation, where’s he now, oh yes, marking time because Trudeau won’t put him back in his position because there are members of parliament who still think he is guilty. If you have any indiscretions or poor judgement, real or perceived, at any point in your life after age 18 and wish to make general/admiral, good luck with that under Justin and co.....It just seems to have the whiff of being orchestrated. My sense is that outside of Vance, guys are flaming out simply due to allegations. When Fortin went down it just seemed like playing into someone's agenda when the country could least afford it. Whose agenda I haven't a clue, but the knives are out for sure. If it isn't the CAF, it's the mounties. What a sh*t show.
What is happening now is only the beginning, if it gains traction the CF could be gutted of it’s SNCO’s and senior officers over unsubstantiated claims just for the sake of so called wokeness.It's the perceived bit that really bothers me. Brutal. I do get it though, the trudeau wokefest has a long way to run yet.
It’s a difficult one to actually figure out as the CF has a non disclosure policy when it comes to investigations that don’t lead to charges. The accused can be cleared, but their hands are tied from defending themselves in public as even the accuser has the right to privacy.Neg. Just shaking my head at the whole situation.
On seasonal issues, I put the cover on the a/c yesterday and its longs (trousers) weather out there. Still nice wearing shorts about the house but Winter’s on it’s way.
I finally had to turn on the furnace tonight, at least l made it this far into fall.
