Wolves in Canadian military personnel’s clothing

Opinion|By Scott Taylor
The Canadian military has no business targeting Canadian civilians with propaganda. That is what our political parties are for.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
If we were better informed on previous pandemics, it would prevent gaslighting politicians from trying to bamboozle the electorate with apple-to-orange comparisons.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
One has to wonder if the Proud Boys membership has increased throughout the CAF since the 2017 Halifax incident, and, if so, are they, too, ‘standing by’?
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Actions by the Canada-commanded NATO task force have an incalculable magnitude in terms of criminal liability as the killing and chaos continues to this day.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Lieutenant General-Wayne Eyre's recent message to the CAF was clear: 'If you have those types of beliefs—get out. We don’t want you.'
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Allowing Erik Myggland to continue serving, despite knowledge of his abhorrent beliefs, only illustrates how far the Canadian Armed Forces still have to go to address racism in its ranks.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
What is frightening for all of us who share the North American land mass is that for Donald Trump to portray himself as America’s firefighter, there needs to be a fire.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
If anyone in high political office in Canada thought that our soldiers’ sacrifice in a U.S.-led unwinnable war would earn us a bargaining chip at trade talks, then they do deserve to be turfed from power.

Opinion|By Scott Taylor
When Donald Trump wanted Iranian general Qasem Soleimani killed, the CIA did not have an agent lace his teacup with poison at a civilian airport.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Rather than spend the $500,000 in repairs to the memorial hall, the cenotaph should be relocated to Beechwood Cemetery.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
This was not the Department of National Defence’s first rodeo, and it won’t be its last. 
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
For a man who has repeatedly claimed to be 'the most militaristic person ever,' Donald Trump seems to have little real grasp on how this defence stuff actually works.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
The sweepstakes have begun and pundits are already laying odds on who will be Canada’s next chief of the defence staff, but there is no clear-cut frontrunner from the pack of Canada’s senior officers.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
That’s right folks, as hard as it is to fathom, there is actually a monument on Canadian soil that pays tribute to Hitler’s SS troops.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
The RCMP officers involved are to be commended on their poise and patience. I cannot imagine a similar peaceful surrender if someone crashed the gates of the White House.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
It would be foolhardy to believe that blood payments altered in any way the failed course of the American-led war in Afghanistan.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
While Kosovo remains in a sort of international status limbo, President Hashim Thaçi has been living up to his old nickname.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Everyone knows what they are, so why the official attempt to spin the Challengers into some sort of air-ambulance, utility delivery plane?
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
When a leak occurs, it is not about embarrassing the institution, it is about setting the record straight. If DND wants to prevent leaks, they need to tell the truth in a timely manner.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Canada is not without racial injustice, however, the current crisis has served to illustrate that there are indeed cultural differences between Canada and our southern neighbour.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
With this most recent crash putting the Snowbirds back in the spotlight, and the COVID-19 crisis, it may be difficult for the government to justify the needed spending to replace the aging Tutor aircraft.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Chrystia Freeland should assemble the Lima Group and recognize Barack Obama as the interim acting U.S. president until their election in November.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
In this era of 'fake news' by malign actors, we need our official sources to provide us with accurate details. In this case, DND was inexplicably off the mark.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Hopefully, Canada will cut its ties with Juan Guaidó now that his true colours have been revealed.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
One of the most common phrases uttered by civilians when they hear of such a tragedy is, 'I can’t imagine what these families must be going through.' For the military community, it's something they know all too well.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Put side-by-side, Canada’s response to the coronavirus crisis is stand up well in relation to the crap show unfolding south of the border.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
The lesson the Canadian Navy can learn from the U.S. is that since we are not at war and the virus is real, the safety of our sailors must take priority over operational duties.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
By far the biggest and most dangerous source of disinformation around COVID-19 has been none other than U.S. President Donald Trump himself.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Wars, by their very nature, stimulate economic activity and with the COVID-19 crisis we have the exact opposite course of action, in that we have strictly enforced idleness for all but essential workers.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
A premature, public relations optics-only deployment of the CAF is not going to help fix this broken egg called COVID-19.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
One has to hope that our international leaders will quickly realize that you cannot close the borders to a virus that is already expanded to all corners of the world.
Opinion|By Scott Taylor
Like the sign says in the china shop, ‘if you break it, you bought it.’ Canada did not break Iraq.
