Armed Forces Priorities: Fighting Systemic Racism says Trudeau

Justin Trudeau want a more inclusive military with priority on systemic "institutional transformations".

If you guessed that the priority for Canada’s incoming chief of defence would be preparing Canada’s Armed Forces for potential conflicts and helping defend the nation in times of need, you’d be wrong. 

The obvious answer should’ve been fighting systemic racism and rooting extremism from the ranks. Those are the priorities that Justin Trudeau has set out for the new chief of the defence staff. 

The new commander will replace Gen. Jonathan Vance who announced in July that he will step down after more than five years as Canada’s defence chief. 

Trudeau and the Liberals are also looking to make the military more diverse by recruiting more women, visible minorities and members of the LGBTQ community. 

“Someone who brings obviously significant operational and strategic skills, but someone who will be very much focused on the institutional transformations that are necessary,” Trudeau said recently when asked what they are looking for in a new defence chief. 

“There is work to do to improve, and to make that organization better reflect and exemplify the values and ambitions of Canadians for a fair country.”

    It’s not up to the politicians to come forward as much as it is “the people” who need to stand up and show distain for what they are trying to implement! The “fear” that people will wake up and rise up!

    When you speak with our elected representatives they too, believe this is a conspiracy. It is impossible to motivate them to take it seriously and to mount some kind of defense to it. In talking with people on here a huge number do not accept it as a possibility even though everything being said can be fact checked where government actions are concerned. We have been told of the internment camps. We do know the government is lying about this virus. Trudeau has admitted he is implementing the great reset. How do we wake people up??
