    "Vibe" of CIS-White men [Road Split from: Sexual Misconduct in the CAF

    Follow on thought. I am successful by most metrics, and enjoy some of the privileges that go with that. I am also an immigrant. Am I a privileged immigrant, or an immigrant who is privileged? Does my privilege derive from being an immigrant or is it just that I am an immigrant who has...

    "Vibe" of CIS-White men [Road Split from: Sexual Misconduct in the CAF

    Hmm. Privilege may cause individuals to be blind to the plight of others - but it does not mean that all those that have been afforded privilege will automatically be blind to the plight of others. It is possible to be "privileged" and be aware of the plight of others.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    A UK Company is getting after this problem. Industry is not against Additive manufacturing - they just want to be able to monetize their IP. This approach (and there are others) solves that problem. You still pay for the part (by buying the code that you cannot see) and get to produce on...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    That is indeed the way ahead...and IP is the biggest stumbling block. As to the supply chain, we need to find the right balance between Just in Time, Just in Case, and Just Because. I am doing some work with Supply Ontario and they will face some of the same issues as they ramp up to full capacity.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    So one of my closest friends was an MWO. He and I and a Sgt spent many an evening together while I was a senior officer. Any issues there?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    It is in fact completely unreasonable. That way lies madness. How about the CAF treats its people like adults... And why an exception for CIC officers ? On what moral, legal, constitutional, or even commonsensical principles are you basing your suggestion?

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Except the context of the original discussion was institutional leadership - vis CDS et al. I think that not all "styles" best prepare someone for the strategic roles that we ask people to assume....or that some chase to their detriment...and the institution's.
