Maxime Bernier says new female head of Canadian Armed Forces is ‘woke’ choice obsessed with ‘gender identity nonsense’

"The new boss of the Canadian Armed Forces appointed by Trudeau yesterday is the woke apparatchik who brought DEI rules and diversity hiring quotas."


Peoples Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier says the new Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Lieut.-Gen. Jenny Carignan, is a poor choice to lead the Canadian Armed Forces given her record of "promoting gender identity nonsense."

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau named Carignan as the first female CDS this week. She will be promoted to full general rank when she assumes her new role.

"The new boss of the Canadian Armed Forces appointed by Trudeau yesterday is the woke apparatchik who brought DEI rules and diversity hiring quotas, turned the CAF into an organization promoting gender identity nonsense, and introduced an 'inclusive' dress code so ridiculous it just had to be made more restrictive again," Bernier posted.

"Now she'll have full power to make sure we have an army of sissies and minority hires with outdated equipment who couldn't even repel an invasion from Iceland." 

"Carignan 'has served for the past three years as Chief, Professional Conduct and Culture, National Defence, leading efforts to transform the culture of the CAF.'"

Trudeau also appointed the first woman to command the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, naming Brenda Lucki as the RCMP commissioner in June 2018. Critics accused Lucki of promoting Trudeau's gun control policies by interfering in the Nova Scotia mass shooting incident. 

Outgoing CDS Gen. Wayne Eyre admitted recently that woke policies in the CAF, including "relaxed" dress and deportment standards, did not go over well with many military members. 

"This has made some profoundly uncomfortable. You know, based on the generation they come from," Eyre said in an interview with CBC.
