    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    My apologies, that did come across as insensitive, and it wasn't my intention to offend. By 'fat' I meant self-imposed obesity which is indeed a problem in our country. Our society, imho, does not make it easy to stay healthy and in many cases, celebrates the opposite approach. In regards to...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    There are way too many fat people in the west. So much so that the pentagon chief stated that if a draft was to occur, there would be so many obese people that it would constitute a national security crisis. Terrible.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    I read the Global Article which states "All eyes are currently on the upcoming report from the parliamentary budget officer, which is to be released later this month and provide an updated cost for the Type-26 along with estimates for purchasing two other warships." What are these 'two other...

    How is your day going?

    Good, I am excited, thanks for asking. My military career finally begins and I will have my first training class for NAVRES this evening, although it will be on Microsoft Teams. I am still excited though as I have been counting down the days for some time now.

    Does a merger make sense?

    Lots to learn on my end, but the replies paint a good picture of different obstacles and some similarities between the two organizations. Dimsum is correct, I certainly don't have a great knowledge of our Coast Guard. , more than anything, I had the arctic in mind and the prospect of the RCN...

    Does a merger make sense?

    I know there is a lot of knowledgeable sailors on here and that's who I am aiming this post at. As an RCN recruit, I wanted to ask: Would it make sense to merge our Coast Guard and Navy thus giving the Navy a sizeable fleet and new capabilities? As someone new to the world of the RCN, I am not...

    Are we going to phase out a Halifax-class frigate for every new CSC delivered? Or how will that work, will CSC's and Halifax-class frigates coexist for a time? Or will it be one or the other.

    1 beheaded, 3 killed in French church terror attack 29 Oct 2020

    We are already seeing a large divide occur between unified (quasi-Christian) Europe and the Islamic Middle East . Macron is making speeches denouncing Islam's influence in France, and Germany (de-facto leader of the EU) is on board with this rhetoric as well. This is the second beheading in a...
