    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The way I read the article it sounds like not. With u/c and surveillance involved, this was a targeted investigation, likely arising from ongoing complaints. It's not like he just happened to be caught red-handed (so to speak).

    Travel chaos continues as Canadian airlines, airports top global list of delays over long weekend

    Forgot to add, don't recycle the boxes. We did something similar (not HD, some moving company if I recall) and sold them on Kijiji and made a good chunk of our money back.

    Isn't that what the used box bin at the local grocery store is for? :)

    Saanich Bank Robbery/Aftermath (sep fm Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis)

    Yes, that will be interesting to watch. Of course, the article doesn't go into a lot of detail but on the surface it sounds like a bit of a 'fishing expedition'.

    Effect of Rowe v. Wade reversal in the US Military.

    Ha ha. I didn't have to click on the link - it just played in my head.

    Gaa. I wonder how she treats people she doesn't like.

    Saanich Bank Robbery/Aftermath (sep fm Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis)

    The quick and easy answer is 'yes'. The benchmark the courts will use is 'reasonable expectation of privacy' and there is a tonne of caselaw on that. If you post something on the web with no privacy controls or filters, it can be argued that you had no reasonable expectation of privacy. The...

    Active Shooter In NS. April 19 2020

    Perhaps then we could look at times when the Conservatives were in power and how much money they spent on projects that push conservative ideology. They are politicians, then have an ideology, they have the purse strings. perfect storm.

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

    With the word "should", they become guidelines, not standards or policy, and would have minimal value beyond employing many new federal bureaucrats in 'busy work'. As in most things Canadian, anything flowing down from the federal to provincial level must be accompanied by a pile-o-dough and...

    Active Shooter In NS. April 19 2020

    Well, if you want to learn a new language, immersion is a tried a true method. No doubt you been around a bunch of bureaucrats, or read their chronicles, and determined that it indeed a foreign language. A unique language that has the ability to simultaneously says a lot and absolutely...

    Defending Canadian Arctic Sovereignty

    I understand that. I was responding to the statement; "Just to show willing if nothing else". If a surveillance site needs to be in the far north for operational reasons, fair enough. If it should be up there for sovereignty reasons, that's something else. I assumed perhaps incorrectly, that...

    Defending Canadian Arctic Sovereignty

    Seems like a lot of coin if the goal is to simply show willingness. I get the need for overlapping arcs, redundancy, etc. and s mentioned downthread, tailoring what you deploy and where to what you are looking for. Multiple layers and sensor types probably makes much sense. I don't know the...

    Hockey Canada in the Government Crosshairs

    I know little of the current HC controversy or how HC operates, but I suppose how you view public funding towards sport, any sport, and the role sport plays in the national psyche will impact your view. Even though the odds of any one kid making the NHL is infinitesimally small, the journey...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    To the people of 1945, it no doubt felt to them like the end of the long game. An estimated 70-85 million people dead in six years. I doubt Main St. USA, Poland, France or the UK would have cheered, or voted, for the 'long game'.

    Defending Canadian Arctic Sovereignty

    Given the potential range of the technology, the costs of far north, remote siting may not be justified. I don't know the characteristics and limitations of the various types of radars - most of this is waaaay above my mental paygrade, but if this Wiki image is to believed and is current, as...
