xx Army.ca Wiki Editors Wanted

September 22, 2020, 08:31:57 by Mike Bobbitt
All,

A few years back, we added a Wiki to Army.ca, and many members contributed to its content: https://army.ca/wiki

Recent changes in the forum and mediawiki software packages have made seamless login from one to the other impossible, and so the Wiki contents have stagnated. I am looking for a handful of editors who would be  willing to update and expand the information in the Wiki. For those who are able, I can manually create accounts and set you loose to make updates. Please let me know via PM or reply to this thread if you are interested, and thanks for helping to make Army.ca a better place!

Cheers
Mike

Canadian soldier claiming $60,000 in damages from armed forces after they spread his medical information: lawsuit

No investigations provided Boucher with the identity of all those who had disclosed intimate details about his crisis, or provided him with any compensation

OTTAWA – A Canadian soldier is suing the armed forces for $60,000 in damages after enduring “harassment”, “emotional pain and suffering” when colleagues and superiors allegedly spread confidential information about a “medical crisis” he suffered last year.

When Master Warrant Officer Gregory Boucher suffered a medical emergency at his home on Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Borden on Nov. 16, 2019 and was hospitalized for several days, he and his wife expected the event to stay private.

What the member of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) for nearly thirty years did not expect was that “many persons at his workplace were aware not only that he had been hospitalized, but also of the medical reason for his hospitalization and specific confidential details surrounding his medical crisis,” reads a lawsuit filed to the Federal Court earlier this month.

<snip>

... Boucher filed two complaints to the Department of National Defence (DND).

The first was sent to DND’s director of privacy, whose investigation  concluded last June that there had been “unauthorized disclosure” of Boucher’s confidential information, and that his privacy rights had been breached, the lawsuit says.

The second was a harassment complaint filed with the CAF and other high-ranking brass at DND. According to Boucher’s lawsuit, this investigation concluded that he had been harassed because of the “disclosure of confidential medical information.”

To make matters worse, court documents say the investigations determined that Boucher’s medical information was disclosed to his colleagues without his knowledge nor consent “as many as four” times.

xx What’s in a Soldier? How to Rebrand the Canadian Armed Forces

November 16, 2020, 10:15:36 by Dimsum
From CGAI in Oct 2020:

Quote
Abstract

The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) needs to increase its recruitment numbers in order to sustain its capabilities. For this to occur, the CAF must somehow entice Canadians, who would not normally consider the CAF as a job opportunity, to apply. There could be a number of reasons why they would not consider the Forces, including the CAF’s demographics, its poor organizational culture or a lack of knowledge about the CAF’s policies, strategy and operations. To change these perceptions, the CAF must rebrand what it is to be a soldier, thus rebranding itself.
