Canada Makes White Men Cannon Fodder (Pretty Standard Stuff) By Paul Walker

     It is just the manifest destiny of history; too bad if you are a white male because, your number is up:

“Depending on the week and whether employment equity (or EE) targets are being met, the Canadian Forces periodically closes some of its approximately 100 occupations or trades to any applicants but women. The information is contained in so-called weekly “processing cheat sheets” used by recruiting staff — some of which were obtained by the National Post — and was confirmed by a military source. The Post isn’t identifying that source, at the source’s request, for fear of repercussions. But the commander of the recruiting group, Colonel Luc Sabourin, also confirmed in a telephone interview Thursday that the forms “are a weekly tool to allow us to meet our designated EE (employment equity) targets.” Sabourin agreed that in practice, it means that if a white male was applying for a job that was temporarily open only to EE candidates, he would be informed the occupation was full and other job possibilities discussed. In some cases, Sabourin said, if the particular job was the man’s “hard choice”, it would be noted on his application and he might be contacted later, when the EE targets had been met and the occupation was again open to everyone. Asked if the man would be told the occupation was still open for members of EE groups, Sabourin said no.”

     Still, always looking on the bright side of life, as the military’s main role in the modern world is local oppression and social control, maybe this is not such a bad thing after all.
