VAC and other Soldiers' Benefits / View med docs?????
« Last post by Brew79@ on Today at 18:35:33 »
Is it possible to view my medical docs? I asked for a copy and was quickly educated on the process of filling out the form and waiting 4 to 6 months for them to be put on a CD and sent to me.  On PCAT.. Can't wait 6 months. If I know the dates of appointments will health records give me coinciding dr notes from that appointment? I don't know what else to do.

Canadian Politics / Re: The Next Conservative Leader
« Last post by George Wallace on Today at 18:35:01 »
I'm sure you'll vote for the CPC in an election regardless of whether Bernier is leader or not.

Unlike Diehard Liberals who never seem to change their colours, I have done so several times.  I would prefer to vote for the best member of my Riding than for the Leader.  The Party Platform would be the next qualifier for me; is their Platform more in line with my desires than the other Parties.  If I actually despise a Leader, and I have no other options (Party Platform and Riding candidates), then I confess, I may not vote.

Ah, but who defines the "good of the service and country"?  And what if there's a conflict between good of the service and good of the country?  Remember "loyalty up & loyalty down"?  In the example I gave earlier, different people would have very different answers depending on the government in power and the solution being proposed.But if the same CDS stood up to the previous government, would he have been seen as a hero or disloyal?  That's what I mean about "good for the goose, good for the gander" -- naive as it sounds, "right" and "wrong" can coloured in a pretty partisan way in such situations.

You missed the third proviso, "and should be done".  I know, I know, you'll respond "who decides that..."  all I can say as don't ask me, I'm not an Admiral, just a plebe.

So anyways there should be a DOAD or something like that coming out at some point addressing use by CF members.

Dileas is Gaelic for Faithful.  My regimental motto ($8th Highlander) is Dileas Gu Brath or Faithful forever.

I copied the concept from an old and respected member of the site, who was also member and legend in our regiment.  He passed away many year ago.

Tough question, but if it's for the good of the service and country and should be done... then yes.  Too many times we've been saddled with crap just because it buys votes here and there.  LSVWs and Kim Campbell comes to mind.

... imagine if the CDS stood with the forces and called out the governments BS, firing him would make the government look guilty by removing a critic.

Real constructive :facepalm:

Please do not try to bait me.  Otherwise I will demonstrate how hypocritical you are.

Before you despised the Devil's Salad, attacking me for my support.  Now all of a sudden medical Cannabis okay in your books?  And if it was legalized, like alcohol, what would make you think it would be at anyone's place of work???

If you want to offer advice, know your facts.  Don't post to boost your presence here., and Please do not engage with me for the sake of starting a fight.

To often we see flag officers hold back until they are retiring, they let it all out and get 15 seconds of fame and it's gone. Now a public battle over political interference, that would give the government a black eye, imagine if the CDS stood with the forces and called out the governments BS, firing him would make the government look guilty by removing a critic.
