    The WTF News Files

    Humans are just trash. People did the same thing in the 60s as well except they didn't have the ability to video tape then. March 13, 1964 | New York Woman Killed While Witnesses Do Nothing

    Remains found at Kamloops residential school 'not an isolated incident,' Indigenous experts and leaders warn

    I can't speak for the average Aboriginal and Metis children, but for the Inuit children we could solve much of those issues however we would be the evil white men if we dared to do so. Start requiring helmets on snowmachines and ATVs up North as well as adult driving or at least supervising (...

    Remains found at Kamloops residential school 'not an isolated incident,' Indigenous experts and leaders warn

    Take a walk in any old cemetery and look at the gravestones, not very many lived a long and healthy life. Lots of child deaths, mothers, young adults, industrial accidents, horse accidents, diseases, etc. The reason there was so many boomers was because historically a family would have had 6 or...

    A "Why" Dress Thread split from OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    Spend enough time drinking the cool-aid you get to become the one brewing the cool-aid. To be fair the Navy had (has?) the same thing as well, you just don't hear about it nearly as much. I remember being told I had to throw on a heavier jacket and toque when working outside in around zero on...

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    Why call it the British, South African, or Brazilian variant then? Personally I don't use the China virus crap, but the other side of it is why do we not respond the same way to those variant names?

    Mess Dues

    You mean profit off the interest of the collective accounts and deny members the ability to spend their funds. We had issues where we couldn't buy furniture which our mess had voted and approved because NPF refused to let us spend the money on it. Not to mention the insanely large amount of time...

    Acting Nice for Politics Sake (HMCS Calgary in Brunei)

    You make it seem as though we are always the good guys. Reality is our own actions are flawed as well, but the moral indignation we provide other countries with isn't applied with the same vigour locally. WWII was just a continuation of 18th and 19th century politics just in the 20th century...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The military is controlled by the public. We prefer to try and keep the CAF as low a profile as possible to avoid any public backlash. In recent years due to our own internal failings its become harder and harder to keep a low profile, and the stuff they are bringing to light really exemplifies...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Its so the state doesn't end up having to care for you afterwards. Not just that but if you start taking it away, people will gradually open up what it can be removed for and I guarantee you there would be places taking advantage of that for their own benefit (i.e. stripping you of your pension...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    This all just brought me back to thinking of that Reservist Cpl who helped support a female in his regiment who brought up a sexual assault complaint only to be railroaded by his CoC. If I recall correctly his appeal through redress of grievance made it all the way to the CDS where the 2IC...

    2021 federal budget and the CAF

    I wouldn't take what I am saying personally, I am simply saying that things are cyclical and that there are things that a person can do to mitigate it. In many ways the CAF does put more pressure on people than what your average job does as you can't quit it instantly. For many people though...

    2021 federal budget and the CAF

    I saw a great chart the other day which showed the housing market in Canada vs 6 other western nations and how much it went up from 2000 to 2020. Unfortunately I couldn't find it but Canada was up 175% from 2000 in housing costs (the highest) well Germany was down 15% since 2000. Its a hot...

    2021 federal budget and the CAF

    If you want a cheaper house just go and move to a cheaper area. You chose a job which prevents you from doing so. The CAF does a lot to protect you when you lose money selling a house, but I would also argue its not the best idea to purchase a house knowing your leaving the area in a few years...

    2021 federal budget and the CAF

    Who says you have to be in the CAF or Ottawa? You choose to make that decision, and like every decision there is pros and cons.

    2021 federal budget and the CAF

    When your lowest paid educational courses are female dominated and your highest paying educational courses are male dominated (not to mention the highest paid trades) your going to end up with women making less in general. Median is also a much better assessment of salary than Average as average...

    2021 federal budget and the CAF

    First off, just because the market is overheated that doesn't mean you buy in. Right now a smart person would be saving money in cash for when interest rates go up or the housing market crashes (both likely to happen soon, one will directly lead to the other). There will be deals soon enough...

    2021 federal budget and the CAF

    You are choosing to live in expensive to live areas. Where I live, you can afford a house on minimum wage. Might not be the nicest house in the best neighbourhood, but it is doable. The government shouldn't be getting involved in child care, odds are the main people able taking advantage of it...

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    If you actually want to help the environment you would be banning goods that are made without pollution controls (or similar pollution controls as us) from entering the country. Make it illegal to export goods or resources to other countries that will turn those into goods with no pollution...

    Why it doesn't make sense for Scotland to separate

    The other point is could they even rejoin the EU as just Scotland? I am not sure they would be able to maintain the standards to join on their own without the UK to assist. Could result in this small broke country with nowhere to go.

    Why it doesn't make sense for Scotland to separate

    For the UK leaving the EU it wasn't about economics, it was about freedom and the right to decide your future. If it had just remained a economic union as it was originally supposed to be, the UK would have had no issues with it. Scotland is a country that has been in decline for decades, as a...
