Design an "officer selection" to take place after basic training. Check for mental and physical endurance, integrity, performance and thinking under stress, problem solving, etc. Make it 2-3 weeks long. You should be able to quickly find those with the abilities and traits neccesary
Dude, you need to open your mind to what people are saying. I will be blunt, your very close minded and hell bent on your views. Take my advice or ignore this former old infantry WO, your choice and based on my experiences, could be at your peril.
Have you noticed your comments have...
Nope. Big Nope.
Why does someone have to wear purple hair and have nose rings or wear long finger nails?
When I joined in 1990, lots of people wore long hair (heavy metal music was still popular), people cut their damn hair if they wanted to join the CAF. SImple concept.
Show me WHY...
The routine I used to get ready for my ISCC was 6 weeks of wearing the 82 pattern webbing and light heavy ruck (75 lbs). I went to the nearby ski hill. I humped the kit up and down the steep hill for 1.5-2 hours. Than dumped the ruck and sprinted up hill, walked down hill for 30 minutes.
Accommodating people who "must" wear bright coloured hair, long fingernails or dresses in DEU does NOT have the focus to be in the CAF. And this is where I think the CAF has failed on this recent policy change.
You join the CAF because you want to serve your country.

I can hear Trudeau now "Um, er, so this volcano blow up thingy is something we can all learn from and take a message away from this. Volcanoes kill people and that is hate, therefore we shall launch a new bill to ban assault volcanoes immediately"
What do you think it would take the worst hurricane event ever? I only recently learned recently the more the Sahara turns to desert (creates more ground heat and repels more air moisture see Dr Walter Jenhe for more info) has direct influence on Atlantic hurricanes.
Keep in mind, the world population was 2 billion in 1939. After 6 years of war an estimated 40-50 million people were killed.
Something like a super volcano is on the level of a massive asteroid impact. So yes, 75% humans gone is very possible.
There is a strong theory among paleontologist that approximately 74,000 years ago a super volcano erupted causing devastating global effects. The then human population was reduced to an estimated 3-5,000. I can't remember what the human population was estimated at the time but they says there...
So some of my favorite hobby past times is learning about super or mega natural disasters. Its very humbling. And incredible what mother nature can do when she lays a smack down on man kind.
I am talking things like volcanoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunami, etc. They impact society. Or many...
