    Stores on an Aircraft Carrier

    I remember my first steak I had in the Navy. I’m convinced it was 20 year old Holstein cow that was chased from Truo to Halifax before she was butchered. Or they just fried the sole of a seaboot. 😑

    Small Arms Trainer

    Once again our NRD had less than satisfactory results at our range weekend (which happens only once per year) so the discussion came up again about Small Arms Trainers (SAT). There used to be one that was shared between CFFS Esquimalt and the Western Region NRD's but as with many shared...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    It's actually kinda funny how all those protestors of "the Man" back in the 80' and 90's are now advocating for more control of their (and others) lives by "the Man" and the complete reverse of that attitude by the 80's/90's advocates of "Peace, Order, and Good Government".

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    I agrée with pretty much all of your points. I think a few Quebec Black Activist would have an issue with no white supremacy in Quebec.

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    So this is directed at me. I was 9 years old when this was going on. I remember the “go ahead and bleed” statement from the PM To me the FLQ was a group dedicated to the independence of Quebec and indirectly keeping it “pure lain” (pardon my piss poor French) and therefore is another version of...

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    In the big scheme of things the FLQ were a very small (but dedicated) group. And if you called them White Nationalists today the Quebec Intelligencia would be extremely upset.

    And make Hellyer (if the old bastard is still alive) the ship's sponsor. Hopefully his alien buddies will keep him alive enough to see this happen!

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    Are there racist idiots out there? Yes there is. Are there some in the CAF? Yes there is. Are they a threat to the nation of Canada? Not at all. The chattering classes in the Ottawa-Toronto-Montreal triangle would love to import every issue from the US and make it our own. For all of our...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    The Sioux were the sworn enemies of the Cree and Ojibwa. They are also mainly a group who lived south of the 49th (some Lakota around Brandon MB). The Blackfoot are a subgroup of the Teton Sioux. The name Sioux is an abbreviation of Nadouessioux (“Adders”; i.e., enemies), a name originally...
