On the universality of service, General Vance has said they're going to start looking at ways to retain these soldiers who become ill or injured.
Is there an opportunity for these members who we've spent a lot of time, money, and effort training and developing to be contributing members of the Canadian Armed Forces but in a different role? I think the general is headed that way. I think this is absolutely revolutionary for where we are.
I do believe there is a saturation point. As time goes on, if I have 1,600 medically releasing members every year, there will come a point where an ability to hold will become a question. Again, the chief of defence staff has said they're going to look at the occupations and which ones may afford that opportunity to an ill or injured member.
This is absolutely wonderful news. I think this is the right way to go. I'll leave it to the chief of defence staff to determine what his levels are going to have to be, because he stills needs to have a fighting force at the end of the day.
