    Military chief warns China and Russia are 'at war with the West' and Canada is not ready

    I was listening to one of the talking heads on one of the networks questioning the sending of a MARLANT ship to the Indian Ocean. Yep, some folks should have a globe on their desk.

    Military chief warns China and Russia are 'at war with the West' and Canada is not ready

    Diplomacy work being done by Navies is an enduring aspect of that service since before the time of the Phoenicians. And that includes being a platform for the velvet glove set to show the flag. Even without the cocktail parties, it has been my experience that we'd host a myriad of military...

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

    I've said this a dozen times now. What I saw on the TCH between Virden and Brandon MB were things I never saw with the Yellow Vests or the United We Roll movements. Cars and Trucks sitting on the approach roads to the highway with people cheering them on. There was palatable frustration and...

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

    Chantal Hébert continues to stress that all this support for the enacting the EA may open the door for a government that all these supporters don't like to enact it for railroad blockades or pipeline protests. Then what happens? When it's a group of annoying mainly white guys, folks don't mind...

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

    Several commentators have said it was refreshing to see and hear that the MP’s and cabinet ministers can talking openly, coherently and with depth instead of just talking points and deflecting. And they didn’t get burnt at the stake as a result. Massaging the story by political communications...

    Was that a mistake to put SAR at the top of the list?

    Is that a Canadian satellite north of 60?

    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...

    Reconstitution

    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.
