Vice Admiral Bruce Donaldson (retired) “I suggest that there is a culture of risk intolerance that has infected the federal level – financial in the case of public servants, and political in the case of ministers – that has led government to prefer additional process, ‘third-party validation’ of responsible officials’ work, and serial delay to achieving results,”


Guess I misjudged leadership if somebody like Vice Admiral Bruce Donaldson is publicly expressing his doubts about political leadership . And to think I ended up nearly being court martialed for doing the same thing. Double standards I am telling you at the very least.
