I blame the government that will allow all 20,000 claims.

Acts of racism, sexual harassment end CFB Esquimalt basic training course

 

3 individuals kicked out of course, those responsible for racist messages yet to be identified

The Canadian Armed Forces has terminated a new recruit training course at CFB Esquimalt after investigating four incidents of sexual harassment and racism reported there in just three weeks.

 

Between Feb. 15 and March 9, staff were made aware of a group chat sharing a sexually explicit photo of a recruit, two other recruits making sexual comments about an instructor, and two separate recruits finding racist messages on their personal equipment.

Even those who had nothing to do with this are finished. How often are these courses run, 1-2 a year? They will sit in limbo for months waiting for a replacement course while their peers move forward with careers.

This is what happens unfortunately when poor moral and lack of Federal leadership force you to accept whomever walks in the recruiting doors.

A basic training course at the Naval Fleet School has been cancelled after a series of incidents that include racist harassment, sexualized comments and the sharing of a sexually explicit photo, according to Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt.

 

The course, a basic military qualification course designed to train new sailors, was cancelled March 11, and three recruits were dismissed.

 

According to CFB Esquimalt, racist messages were directed at a recruit, a sexually explicit photo was shared among recruits, and sexually inappropriate comments made to an instructor. The incidents took place between Feb. 15 and March 9.

 

In a statement provided to the Times Colonist, the Royal Canadian Navy said it takes strong action on allegations of misconduct.

^ Exactly what I said. The entire course is scuttled due to the actions of a few people. Those sitting in barracks waiting to see what is going to happen to their careers will likely have figured out that they made a poor choice and would be better off elsewhere.

I’m sure they’ll keep those recruits occupied. This is not the worst thing the military has seen.

I’m guessing it didn’t explode?
