Papering over the ‘cracks’ not a long-term solution to CAF woes
The CAF is changing the senior leadership on the fly, trying to alter a decades-old culture of sexual misconduct, while still managing overseas deployments, coping with a personnel shortfall, and assisting Canadians.
Brigadier-General Krista Brodie, left, was named the head of the country’s vaccine rollout effort, and Lieutenant-General Jennie Carignan, right, was tapped as the new head of professional conduct and culture. These recent promotions will definitely change the face of the ‘old boys’ club,’ which was previously the composition of our senior military leadership. However, this in itself will not be enough to change an institutional culture that has been defined as highly sexualized, writes Scott Taylor.
