    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Actually, Col (Ret'd) Redman has been saying "this is what we need to do" since the beginning. He wrote to every single premier in the country to this end, but no one wanted to listen.

    He certainly does. Her is a 139 page summary of his views, both describing what has been wrong with Canada's COVID-19 response and what he would have done differently: https://fcpp.org/wp-content/uploads/FC-PS237_CDADeadlyResponse_JL1621_F2.pdf

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    I know this was directed at @Remius but allow me to jump in. What I would like to see, is the approach advocated by Col (Ret'd) David Redman, former Head of Emergency Management Alberta. His seven-point plan: 1. Release a comprehensive, Four Goal-based Pandemic Plan, showing what is to be done...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Assuming you don't work at Kroger. Also, there is an assumption that unvaccinated = you are carrying the disease. This seems a leap. I don't see how testing isn't a viable alternative, that actually guarantees you're not a danger to anyone whereas as Omicron is showing, the fully vaccinated...

    Because if they were there would be lawsuits like crazy and the media would be screaming hysterically about discrimination, ableism, and fat-shaming.

    Chris Wallace leaving Fox

    I think that clip actually may help explain why people are upset. That clip comes from a time that was pretty much the pinnacle of our civilization and things have been trending downwards. People may not be able to articulate what exactly is wrong, but they can see that the Canadian way of life...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    At least they offer an alternative. I still have concerns, but in a private medical system, tacking on an extra charge isn't completely outrageous (assuming that COVID actually poses an increased insurance risk that is actually $200 per month) in and of itself. However the inconsistency is...

    Laundry concern

    This. And the stuff they issue now is actually half decent, versus the "passion killers" that were issued when I was first in in the late 90s that no one actually wore. EDITED TO ADD: I second/third the recommendation to travel light. Just take what the kit list requires, and bare minimum...

    Sick Leave

    Criminal defence lawyer. Which doesn't involve seeing traumatic scenes "in the flesh" but does involve it's share of reviewing such things, although the stress mostly comes from dealing with difficult people and the very heavily results-oriented nature of the job while having little control over...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    Of course it is ... a defence lawyer's job is to advocate for his/her client and do whatever they can to mitigate consequences. Prosecution role is to advocate for harsher penalty. The judge makes the final decision after hearing both sides.

    Religious/Extremist Terrorism: Non-Muslim edition

    Well, it may have an extremism link after all, but probably not the kind of non-Muslim extremism you had in mind ... https://torontosun.com/news/world/accused-killer-waukesha-parade-driver-posted-toxic-anti-white-rhetoric

    Religious/Extremist Terrorism: Non-Muslim edition

    Early indications seem to be that he was fleeing a crime according to the Globe and Mail: Waukesha parade crash driver may have been fleeing a crime

    Religious/Extremist Terrorism: Non-Muslim edition

    That is horrific, but at this point what are the indications that this had anything to do with extremism or some ideological motivation, versus being a mentally disturbed individual, or something other unrelated to political/religious ideology? The mayor called it a "horrible and senseless...

    Sick Leave

    While I'm sure many accommodations/stress leaves are valid, I think it's also true that it's likely much more likely for one to "need" stress leave if it is available. By way of illustration, I am self employed and the sole income for my family. I have had times in my life where the stress was...
