    PaCE : Performance Appraisal and Competency system

    It seems to look like it was designed to make boards easier. The question I can't get an answer to is how does it help the members?

    Claim for broken antique vanity

    I hope I can get it repaired. It would be a shame to lose it.

    Claim for broken antique vanity

    During my move we had a number of broken items and the most concerning one is an antique vanity of my daughters. I can't even begin to think of how to claim that. Has anyone had to file a claim for broken antiques?

    Armyrick's Land Healing Farm...

    So I just spent the last week driving through hours and hours of fields. I was surprised how empty the cattle fields were. It was odd to see cattle within a hundred feet of each other unless it was near shade or water. All I kept thinking was just how badly the land was being used.

    What book are you reading now?

    I just finished Explaining Postmodernism by a Stephen Hicks. It does a very good job explaining the philosophical routes of Postmodernism back the Kant and Hegel. It also pre-dates the current focus on Postmodernism by about a decade so it doesn't seem reactionary. I have also just started...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Just to be clear Bret Weinstein isn't a conspiracy theorist he has a PhD in biology. His wife, Heather Heying, is also a PhD Biologist. They are serious scientists and have been talking with many other scientists, including prominent virologists, for months. I'm vaccinated but I think he...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    So if an officer lays charges does the Crown have to prosecute? Or is prosecution still at the discretion of the Crown? I'm just wondering if it is a case of terminology.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Civilian cops can only recommend charges AFAIK so I don't see why the MP's would be any different. My understanding is that they would recommend charges be laid to the appropriate authority and then that authority makes the decision. If charges aren't laid as appropriate the responsibility lays...

    Clearly you are less jaed than I. I see it as a deliberate attempt to seem as if they are doing better that they really are. I don't think we are the target audience. They are pretty clear in their emails that they are working on files about 25 months prior to now.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The DM "speaks with the Minister's voice" when the minister is unavailable so they are a 2IC who takes over but cant actually be a the minister even in an acting capacity.

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    The Americans have a system where certain members have clearance to see classified information. When they are dealing with a national security issue, they will bring those members into to read the documents that can't be released. The members are then able to raise issues in the house generally...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Unless I missed something, there aren't even claims of coercion from the women involved. If there was a claim that he coerced them by threatening their career, I could see your point. It seems like Vance was a p***y hound and found willing partners among his subordinates. It was wrong for a lot...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    This is a complete non story. I don't golf but I have played basketball with people who have been to prison to attempted murder, assault, drug trafficking, etc. In the context of the game I care about their jumper not their morals. In this case, Vance isn't a criminal or even a suspected...

    VAC wait times

    I need to see how they come up with these numbers. If they tell me they are on a specific month, I count forward until when I applied and my decision has always at the time or later. Now I am at double the estimated wait time and will easily hit 2 years before it is done. And I will immediately...

    Initiatives launched to retain and increase RCAF personnel experience levels

    That sucks. I know someone in the exact opposite position he works two half days a week with no real hope of getting better and they won't release him. It seems like the medical system will always give you the opposite of what makes sense.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    What is work appropriate behaviour is a totally separate issue from sexual misconduct. Having your tits falling out of your shirt is as unprofessional as coming to work in tighty whiteys. We also have to address the fact that a lot of women's fashion is designed to draw attention to women in a...

    Initiatives launched to retain and increase RCAF personnel experience levels

    I understand the reasons behind it and it makes sense. Primarily I have an issue with the idea that Capts who fly all the time and are constantly on TD will be making the same as the guy riding a desk and having dinner with his family every night. Allowances are supposed to be compensation for...

    Initiatives launched to retain and increase RCAF personnel experience levels

    Lots of comments but mostly just anger at the way it was handled, locally anyway. I personally think it is a stupid move, at least with Pilots but I think SAR techs might have issues as well. It's overly complicated. They couldn't explain how it would work properly. It removes any incentive...

    Military, Veterans Affairs won’t pay for Air Force officer’s prosthetic leg

    I am a little surprised. It seemed pretty cut and dry that dropping your kids of at day care isn't military service. I wonder what the far reaching effects of this will be. I you drop the kids of at day care before work, because you need child care to perform your military duties, are you...
