« La #Caf me réclame des indus », une expérience (bien involontaire) de journalisme d'immersion 🧵⤵️
J'enquête actuellement pour @ProtSocInfo sur les dysfonctionnements et pratiques illégitimes des #Caf, dénoncés notamment par le collectif @ChangerCap. Pas de bol, le sujet m'a rattrapée ⤵️
Il y a une dizaine de jours, je reçois des demandes d'information complémentaire. Puis on me demande de redéclarer tous mes revenus depuis 2 ans. J'obtempère l'esprit (à peu près) tranquille car je m'actualise scrupuleusement tous les 3 mois. Sauf que...⤵️

#CAF et données personnelles : diffusion par erreur... Non ! C'est juste une dérive de plus, parce que la notion de service public s'évapore et qu'on préfère externaliser vers le privé faute de vouloir mettre des moyens en interne…
La réduction des coûts ("pognon de dingue") et les sirènes de la numérisation à outrance qui-va-tout-résoudre (par des groupes privés à la double casquette de cabinets de conseil) relèvent d'une volonté politique. Et cela ne concerne pas que les #CAF
Quand renforcera-t-on les moyens humains dans les CAF afin qu'elles puissent remplir leurs missions de service public ? Ce n'est pas à la machine de prendre la main sur des situations humaines (d'ailleurs les décisions automatiques sont interdites)

Dans l'enquête de la cellule @InvestigationRF de Radio France, la @laquadrature du Net explique qu'elle n'a jamais pu obtenir les critères qui justifient le score de risques attribué aux allocataires #CAF... L'opacité semble être la règle !…
Quelle transparence sur les logiciels utilisés et, au passage, le stockage des données des allocataires (coucou Microsoft) ? Quels sont les calculs algorithmiques réalisés pour parvenir à un montant de prestation ?
Même les simulations ne sont pas fiables (écouter Secrets d'info). Et pourtant, les allocataires ont parfaitement le droit de connaître les données personnelles utilisées ainsi que les calculs réalisés (CRPA, art L311-3)

How to act around #servicedogs from the wife of a #veteran
🧵: My husband served 2 tours in Afghanistan as a tank driver with the #CAF. He joined when he was only 17 and served for over 7 years. He has very severe #PTSD, we’ve been told by VA case managers that he has one of 1/13
the most severe cases in Canada by their disability standards.

My husband got a PTSD service dog after being on a waiting list for 6 years.

Before he got a service dog I had no idea the sorts of things both he and I would experience and how it was like to have one.

On a daily basis people try to touch his dog without asking.

People follow us around to watch them work. People stand too close. They stare. They take photos.

There are people who deliberately try to get his dog to misbehave by creating distractions. 3/13

Nous avons eu l'occasion de dénoncer la chasse aux personnes en situation de précarité grâce aux algorithmes, dernièrement avec @comede_asso dans Maux d'Exil. LDQN va plus loin et vous explique le pourquoi et le comment. Le ciblage doit cesser.
@comede_asso Le ciblage par scores de risque, la multiplication des contrôles, la suspension préventive des droits aboutissent à des situations de détresse intolérables, telles celles présentées dans l'article de @Silogora…

During the Second World War, on August 19, 1942, Allied forces launched Operation Jubilee - a major raid on the French coastal port of Dieppe. It was the Canadian Army’s first engagement in Europe. 1/8

Allied forces weren’t strong enough to assault Hitler’s “Fortress Europe.” Winston Churchill preferred clandestine raids inside occupied France to harass the enemy. Louis Mountbatten, a senior British naval officer and advisor, recommended a “combined arms” approach. 2/8 Canadian soliders board landing craft for their run-in to th
Supported by land, air, and naval forces, the plan was to capture Dieppe, destroy key naval facilities, and withdraw. This would test the Allies’ ability to launch complex amphibious assaults and potentially draw enemy troops and equipment away from other fronts. 3/8 Part of the assault fleet gathered for Operation Jubilee. ©

Passchendaele is often remembered as one of the most horrific battles of the First World War. But it’s also a story of how Canadians earned a hard-fought victory against unimaginable hardships in the fall of 1917. 2/11 A photo of the battlefield ...
The Ypres area of Belgium—where Passchendaele is located—was the scene of many devastating battles, including the first recorded use of poison gas. Ypres was also the last portion of Belgium that was not in German hands, so it held great symbolic meaning to the Allies. 3/11 A soldier walking through a...

1/3 If Mercedes was a journo & not a partisan propagandist, she'd know that altering evidence in a criminal case to omit one party, omit all clarifying details & publish with an agenda to misrepresent it will get her & Global sued

#CAF #Vance #CDNpoli
2/3 It's just so galling that ethics are nonexistent & Mercedes would venture into the territory of maliciously exploiting children. None of the 8 kids knows their paternity & several men are alleged to be fathers including others in #CAF. Vance is one of many accused substitutes
3/3 It's also unnerving to see Global News allow Mercedes to tamper with evidence in an active trial to pervert the course of justice. Do they not have libel lawyers to vet what she's doing? At this rate she's putting her sources at risk for criminal charges... You'll see #NatSec

1/24 This is the second #thread in a controlled #leak of my #CAF/#DND investigation. The reason I've chosen to release these details early is to neutralize #disinformation in #CDNmedia during the pre-writ phase

This one is RE Conservative Party Leader Erin O'Toole #CDNpoli
2/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

As my first #thread about Deputy Minister Jody Thomas identified, there's an issue with "torqued" #CDNmedia at Global News (Mercedes Stephenson) + Globe & Mail (Robert Fife) surrounding the Canadian Armed Forces

For reference:
3/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

Most readers are unaware of Mercedes Stephenson's (Global News) undisclosed conflict of interest pertaining to her husband, Dan Mader. Widely described as an on-again/off-again union, Canadian Forces & #CDNmedia were invited to the wedding in 2015

Tonight Major Kellie Brennan told committee former CDS General Jonathan Vance fathered two of her children #cdnpoli #CAF
Global News reached out to Vance in February about the allegations. When asked if he was the father of one specific child by name, Vance said: “I am not.” When asked whether he was the father of another specific child by name, he said, “I don’t even know who these people are.”
Full story from @amandacconn here on Major Brennan telling committee she had two children with Vance and Vances’s comments to Global News…

Today Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan's former Chief of Staff Zita Astravas had been called to testify at the defence committee loking into sexual misconduct in the CAF. Instead of Astravas, Minister Sajjan is appearing. #cdnpoli #CAF
Astravas was the staffer who contacted PCO about the allegations against Vance in 2018.

Opposition MPs say that Liberals are "ignoring the house" and "contemptuous" for substituting the Minister for the former Chief of Staff.
NDP MP @r_garrison says he looks forward to speaking about the concept of ministerial responsibility with Minister Sajjan since he is pointing to that to justify staff not appearing, there are questions on ministerial responsibility after Sajjan refused to accept evidence

#Breaking a Canadian soldier has died after being shot during a live fire training exercise in CFB Wainwright. #CAF
Have been on a level 5 live fire range at Wainwright a few times... my heart goes out to his family. LAV rollovers not uncommon but a soldier being shot during live fire training is much more unusual.
This is a 3VP (Third Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry - 3 PPCLI) exercise but the soldier killed was a reservist attached to the Patricias from the Royal Westminster Regiment.

Today the Canadian Armed Forces released their "comprehensive misconduct response strategy." This is part of their ongoing attempt to stop sexual misconduct in the military following the Deschamps report. I sat down with VCDS LGen Mike Rouleau on it over the phone today #CAF
Report will follow shortly with @amandacconn. Asked about what the new report will achieve that the old approach didn't, the metrics on sexual misconduct have shown the CAF having major challenges in making change, how does this address that?
Asked about the role of the military justice system and whether it has sufficiently changed its approach to sexual assault. Was problem area for the CAF and why the CDS introduced admin discharge as punishment - concern about inability to get change from military justice system

Statistics Canada has just released its report on sexual assault, sexualized behaviours and discriminatory behaviours at Royal Military College in 2019. I will tweet some of the findings. #CAF
Stats Can found that "most (68%) Canadian military college (CMC) students witnessed or experienced unwanted sexualized behaviours" and the most common types were "sexual jokes, inappropriate discussions about sex life and inappropriate sexual comments about appearance or body."
52% of women attending the college experienced unwanted sexualized behaviours, so did 31% of men

Back in October the Prime Minister's plane rolled into the side of a hanger at Trenton (air base) and crunched the nose rendering it unable to fly for months if not well over a year (still not back in the air). The final report is now. #CAF #RCAF
At the time RCAF sources told me they suspected a lack of proper training and potential errors by the contracted civilian ground crew. The report released by the RCAF says investigators found "training was informal and lacking emergency procedures" #CAF #RCAF
The report found that while the parking break was put on, chocks were only placed under some of the aircraft's wheels (not all), and the chocks were "not authorized" by DND in the Technical Support Arrangement they had with the company. #CAF #RCAF

Mañana #CAF tendrá que tomar un decisión importante: si continúa o no adelante con la construcción del tranvía en Jerusalén. El día 1 de junio comenzamos esta campaña para presionar a la dirección y mostrar nuestro desacuerdo con el proyecto. #CAFBajateDelTrenDelApartheidIsraeli Image
En 12 días, hemos enviado más de 3.000 correos electrónicos al presidente del Consejo de Administración de CAF, Andrés Arizkorreta, pidiéndole que #CAF rescinda inmediatamente su contrato para el JLR, porque el proyecto supone una clara violación del derecho internacional. Image
En 12 días, decenas de ciudadanos y ciudadanas de Euskal Herria y otros territorios hemos llamado a las sedes de #CAF para pedir explicaciones sobre el proyecto y denunciar que su socia israelí Shapir figura en la lista publicada por la ONU de empresas cómplices con la ocupación. Image

Many seem to think the military "report" was intentionally commissioned to be released. Nope. This was the #CAF doing what it often does (and many are grateful in this case). Documenting conditions and challenges. It was a BIG surprise to military folks Premier Ford released it.
It was also a big surprise to many to hear Prime Minister Trudeau address it. As one source said a generation of officers who grew up in Afghanistan know the importance of documenting and sending it up the chain. They will not face allegations of looking the other way.
This was the troops doing their job and reporting what they saw. It was command making sure they checked in with the troops. It was documenting the conditions and challenges to the mission and then it was sent up to General Rouleau at CJOC and the CDS, then to politicos

If you're wondering why troops became whistle blowers... they were deeply concerned nothing was going to be done about the conditions they were reporting. They didn't understand why the federal govt had not moved given the May 14th letter.
Military left one of the homes last night, many troops are worried about what is going to happen. These #CAF troops don't go counter cultural and talk to a reporter easily. But they know those in LTC facilities don't have a voice. Soldiers are now their voice.
UPDATE: 39 of the troops serving in long term care homes have now contracted #COVID19. Deeply concerning in light of the allegations @globalnews about the lack of PPE and improper use of it and infection control protocols between staff and residents.

Update: #CAF sources were told the report on conditions in long term care homes were sent to Minister @BillBlair on the date of the letter, May 14. My sources say they cannot verify receipt. PMO and Blair's office both say Min @HarjitSajjan had it first, Blair got it Friday.
So I'm not sure what happened to that letter between when it was signed on May 14th and when it landed on Minister @HarjitSajjan's desk, but govt states it was not given till @BillBlair until the 22nd when he alerted Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau.
The federal government did not notify the province of the letter via @BillBlair until very late Sunday evening (around midnight according to provincial sources) after receiving it on Friday. #cdnpoli
