Marked 'EE,' these are the Canadian Forces jobs where only women need apply

Article here. Excerpt:

'Depending on the week and whether employment equity (or EE) targets are being met, the Canadian Forces periodically closes some of its approximately 100 occupations or trades to any applicants but women.

The information is contained in so-called weekly “processing cheat sheets” used by recruiting staff — some of which were obtained by the National Post — and was confirmed by a military source.

The Post isn’t identifying that source, at the source’s request, for fear of repercussions.

But the commander of the recruiting group, Colonel Luc Sabourin, also confirmed in a telephone interview Thursday that the forms “are a weekly tool to allow us to meet our designated EE (employment equity) targets.”

Sabourin agreed that in practice, it means that if a white male was applying for a job that was temporarily open only to EE candidates, he would be informed the occupation was full and other job possibilities discussed.'

... a person a job opportunity based on race or sex illegal, esp. when those twofactors aren't relevant to the job duties?

It should be.

Unfortunately, the progtards were able to slip a clause into the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms that says that discrimination is A-Ok if the intention is to help out "underprivileged" demographics. What a load!
