Amid a massive shortage in military staff and equipment, Canada’s defence minister is virtue signalling over a “gender based” mission to increase female armed forces members in Ghana.

“Today, I announced the deployment of a Canadian Training Assistance Team to Ghana. Under Operation PRESENCE, this gender balanced task force will contribute to Ghana’s ongoing efforts to increase the meaningful participation of uniformed women in United Nations Peace Operations,” tweeted Defence Minister Anita Anand. 

The mission intends to “enhance understanding of gender issues and gender barriers impacting [Ghana Armed Forces],” a news release reads.

This foreign gender mission comes as Canada’s military is severely handicapped. 

Canada is struggling to replace weapons it hastily donated to Ukraine earlier this year.

“We have exhausted inventory from the Canadian Armed Forces,” Anand said in May. “There are capacity issues.”

Additionally, Canada’s military is so short-staffed under Trudeau’s leadership that 10,000 positions are currently unfilled, and recruitment admits there’s an “applicant crisis.”

“We are without a doubt in an applicant crisis right now,” said Brig.-Gen.Brigadier-General Krista Brodie, who oversees the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) recruitment and training.

The 10,000 unfilled military positions amounts to about 10% of Canada’s entire military staff.

However, on gender quotas, Canada’s military is a global powerhouse. 

But the pursuit of equal representation between men and women is misguided, according to acclaimed psychologist Jordan Peterson. 

“The more egalitarian and wealthier the country, the larger the differences between men and women in temperament and interest,” Peterson says, referring to multiple studies that support his claim.
