The Canadian Arms Forces: There's No Strife Like it and the Bang Bang is Bangin'
The Canadian Military is in the midst of a full blown sexual misconduct crisis. It has been going on for years. Now, you might think “crisis” is a little journalistic hyperbole, a little “click bait” to keep y’all listening? Oh, no, check this out… in 2016 and 2017, seven former members of the CAF brought a class action lawsuit against the Government of Canada alleging sexual misconduct, sexual assault, discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and the list goes on… and on. You know how many CAF members signed on to the class action suit? 19, 000! Nineteen thousand, not a typo, nineteen thousand. The government has agreed to a 900 million dollar settlement and has already paid out 2379 claims. On today's pod we look at the his-story and you'll be introduced to the two women who have said; that's it, that's all...You will laugh and then you will cry.With contributions from Mio Adilman, Lisa Evans, Lyne Tremblay, Chris Leon and Doug Wilde.
