The Canadian Forces are trying to hire a lot of people to fill positions they’re not able to fill.
And that means that the people they’re hiring have to be able to do a lot more than just stand around waiting for the call to get through to them.
That means, for example, that they’re also working long hours, and they’re getting sick, and in the last year they’ve had to deal with a massive increase in accidents and suicides.
So how do they get the people who can handle that?
It’s an interesting question that has come up recently in the media, and it’s also one that’s been asked by some people.
But in the Canadian Army, the Canadian Coast Guard, and the Canadian National Defence, there’s a lot that’s not being done that’s going to help them do their jobs better.
And so the question is, how do we get those people into those jobs?
And the answer is, we’ve got a lot to do to change things.
