- Canada's military launches formal proceedings against more than 900 unvaccinated troops
900 out of a 80k a bit of a kick in the pants
I don't like the mandates, but the military is one place where you really don't have a leg to stand on on this one. I remember when I got called up, before we were about to head overseas, lined us up and hit us with a half dozen shots.
There's also the joke about the guy who goes on leave, gets sunburned, then gets an article 15 for damaging government property.ID: hsohzzk
Holy shit - that sunburn joke was drilled into us in QL-2. “Getting a sunburn is the same thing as shooting yourself in the foot!”.ID: hspgos8
They gave you 6 shots in one sitting?ID: hspyfom
Don't make any bit of god damned sense to be willing to get shot for your country but not get a shot for your country.ID: hspzs8o
Feels bad.ID: hsp8pfu[removed]
The military is still an employer. You don't want to follow your employers rules, then find a new job? Fairly simple. Nobody owes you anything in life.ID: hso7urj
To be fair I don't think you can just quit any country's military, could be wrong but can't just decide mid battle you're done and walk away lolID: hsq2bap
Certain jobs come with an expectation that you'll make sacrifices for the common good. The military, police, fire fighters, intelligence officers, that kind of thing.
How can a solder claim to take a bullet for me, but not a needle, especially if I'm willing to take the needle for them without hesitation. Doubly when veterans are willing to take the needle, standing in line right beside me telling me how proud they are to do their patriotic duty.
Certain jobs also expect you to trust the scientific consensus, like Doctors, Nurses, EMTs, medical facilities personnel, journalists, and politicians in office.
How can I trust a Doctor's diagnosis and treatment, if they don't trust the scientists that made it? How do I know the doctor isn't giving me some nothing treatment that will delay me from getting proper science-based treatment? How can I trust a nurse to administer the science-based treatment, and not substitute it for vitamin megadoses or something?ID: hsq3nnf
You literally sign away your right to say no to this sort of thing when you enlist.ID: hsq4e9h
Yep it's pretty fuckin simple. If you don't care about the health of others, get the fuck out.
Hmm if only that logic applied elsewhere. Looking at you Scott Moe, you Covid ridden Bitch. I don't hope you die, but it WOULD benefit hundreds of thousands of people. I feel guilty for NOT wanting your death, for all to gain closure from.ID: hsoe003[removed]
The military can give you a lawful order to work nights for the next 3 months because someone didn't like the stupid look you had on your face this one time. No one should be surprised.ID: hsoupqz
This is a truly horrible analogy.
Soldiers don't get a choice about the other dozen vaccines the military pumps in you when you join whyvdo they get a choice for covid?ID: hspdoia[deleted]
Why should they be in the military when they're acting in a PR movement for the benefit of some foreign leader?
Their loyalty is suspect, if it's there at all.
Awesome! Lock em upID: hsptkcc
Why? They're already getting fired.
Good. Get rid of the mouth breathers.
So they will take orders without question when it comes to killing people, but a vaccine is where they draw the line?ID: hspb38v
Or being dropped out of an airplane, or crawling under live fire, or being put in harm’s way in any number of other situations.
People don’t realize that once you sign the dotted line your ass is theirs. And that means every which way to Sunday. Show up late that’s an awol. Don’t shave that morning that’s weekend duties. Uniform not in standard that’s day, extra duties, they own you 24/7 and it’s the way it should be. The military needs conformity to work in complete unison fighting. If you want to leave you also can’t just quit it can take months or years to be released before end of contract. Source I served my 3 years and value every minute of it
Canadian military is really candid as to how picky they are keeping their career staff.
We can only take the cream of the crop.
In other words. If you aren't vaccinated by now you're a clown.ID: hspbfbk
Canada most definitely doesn't just take the cream of the crop. There's a giant rape controversy in the ranks currently.ID: hsoycuq[removed]
Good. Good. Good.
Damn that’s like half our military.
Edit: damn people can’t take a joke. Sorry.ID: hsoqodd

I have told this story a couple times. When I joined the Canadian military in basic training they had us all line up to give us our vaccines. I had all my vaccines but didn't have proof. Well tough shit to me i was given 5 needles..3 in one arm 2 in the other, i dont even know if they told me what they were(this was 2009).The same thing happened to a friend of mine on our sister platoon. A few years later that friend of mine was being deployed and before he was to leave they asked if he had his vaccines. He told the MIR he got them all in basic training, they asked for proof which he did not have SO THEY GAVE HIM ALL HIS FUCKING VACCENES AGAIN.
Fuck each and every one of these 900 fools...i wish nothing but the worst for all of them.
Uh shouldn’t they be following orders? They have no leg to stand on.
Do they do Peanut Butter Shots in Canadian Military?ID: hsp79ha

So fucking disrespectful. The Canadians took Juno beach on D-Day. Thousands of Canoes were mobilized.ID: hso2tc0
Hopefully the same half that harbors sexual assault, fascists, nazis, and anti vaxxers.ID: hsobfe0
I dont think they get the joke.
Might be a great way to rid the military of a lot of right-wing nuts.

55 minute old account and you've already profiled yourself as an immature far-right anti-vaxxer.
That's gotta be some kind of a record.

I can’t imagine it’s news to you that Military Personnel are subject to different legal standards than civilians?ID: hso6ewn
That is literally what it means to sign up for the military. You are agreeing to follow the orders handed down by your government for the greater good of your country.ID: hso6sv2
The military in Canada requires a multitude of vaccines already. If they did not want then they should not of joined. Lol
How did this take so long?
