I guess headlines like these don't help (and there have been additional senior "leaders" charged since most of these were written):I agree, however we should resist changes that will make things worse.
Based on the stats presented in this thread there is no comparison, the rate in the CAF is far lower.
Given that, should we replace the more effective military structure with a less effective civilian based structure?
The question isn't should we try to fix these problems, the question is if the proposals and recommendations are actually likely to make things better.
Finally this has gotten off track.
My point is that it is inappropriate to slam military leadership as being full of serial sex offenders, when there is no evidence to support such a claim.
I never said they were perfect, I just doubt there is evidence of a massive overrepresentation in senior leadership.
