RoyalDrew said:Listen, there is no question that Bruce Moncur was hard done by and I am sorry for what happened to him. However, what he has presented in his blog is a misinformation piece. He is a member of the NDP and is towing the party line now as he is one of their candidates. I'm not saying take what he is saying with a grain of salt, rather understand where he is coming from and maybe contrast that with some stuff you have read here and then formulate your own opinion.
The military is a large organization and for every person you hear saying it sucked and I never want to be part of that organization again, you'll get another person saying it was awesome and the best time of their life.
Only you can decide if you think it's the right fit for you.
This is a pretty good way to sum the debate in this thread up. I'm watching soldiers in this Army shooting monthly, doing cool things and generally keeping up to speed in what they are supposed to. Is everything perfect? Nope. Is everyone happy? Nope - but nobody ever is. Mileage may vary, but it could be a lot worse. The original author is not doing anyone any favours by saying "no one should join the Canadian Forces".
