First send all politicians who want to vote on this topic to minimum one year of military service that only includes active duty beyond our borders. Once a full 338 mps have done that and are currently elected than they could decide what's best on this issue.

Every citizen should be required to live and work in a third-world country for at least one year

@57DWZPTConservativefrom Alberta  answered…1yr

Three years service to give the Molly coddled youth of today some back bone, discipline, patriotism, moral compass and respect. One year is not enough for today's generation.

time to make men 0ut of our privileged, entitled youth. maybe, just maybe, they would think twice of doing crime. If this were an alternative instead of jail, maybe they could grow to be productive citizens in society. please consider productive discipline for those who are lost in society. jail is an invitation to free housing, meals, health care, education and God knows what other privileges. our veterans get what? shameful how the treatment of those who protect our country are forgotten. got this in reverse folks. shouldn't have to have this pointed out if you're doing your job right.

Yes, for dropouts and those not pursuing higher education or trade training.

@699JDC6Conservativefrom Alberta  answered…1yr

Immigrants should be serving time up to 3 years in the military to obtain citizenship. Other wise further education and or skilled trade would also be a benefit

I think 18-year-olds should contribute one year of service to their country, but not just through a military service. There should be options such as internships in international and inter-provincial gov't service, building houses for orgs such as Habitat for Humanity, or in the peace corps building wells and solar energy hubs, anything that contributes to the well-being of our society.

@5RYWNM4Liberalfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

NO - but offer free post-secondary education for military service.

@6355QMQLibertarianfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

You want to collect welfare?, then mandatory 1 year in military service, earn your paycheck, or you get nothing

We should be required to have 1 year of some form of public service.

@9W87HPFNew Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…5mos

Military service should be a choice. A stronger emphasis on education and skill development would make military service more attractive and available to a broader range of applicants. Also clean up sexual misconduct and abuse to make military service safe for women, LGBTQ, and men who are vulnerable to sexual exploitation and abuse from abusers in positions of power and authority.

@9W5WNMDNew Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…5mos

Should be a choice, but focus more on education and skill development.

@9V672V6Conservativefrom Ontario  answered…8mos

It should be encouraged with more advertising. Schools should be able to promote it more.

Welcome to the Middle-East. You see? you get all the "good" things from other countries, but then you want to ban their people from coming here. That's not fair. lol

@JatzuyuWomen’s Equalityfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

Canada's population is low compared to other countries, if there was a war we may not have enough people, even 1 year of military service is gives you enough battlefield knowledge.

Nobody should be forced to provide any military services, or any services for that matter, unless it is their choice to do so!

@9XWT7P9Liberalfrom Ontario  answered…3mos

@9XBG844Bloc Québécoisfrom Nova Scotia  answered…4mos

regulary no, but if a third world way starts again and we're lacking on military then yes

@9WYGDRMNew Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…4mos

No as the military has shown to be used for endeavours of the owning class exclusively.sending thousands of young men to die for oil and minerals

@9WP7BDDLibertarianfrom Ontario  answered…4mos

@9WNNGKNGreenfrom Quebec  answered…4mos

No. I do agree with service should be a choice and not an obligation but I would like to add that not everyone has the mindset of a soldier and those forced into it might find themselves adding to the already too high list of depression cases or worse.

@9WM48YTPeople’s Partyfrom Alberta  answered…4mos

Yes, our nation is underprepared for a war if one were to occur

@9WL8BM3Christian Heritagefrom Alberta  answered…4mos

Yes. But not for those that pursue post secondary education. And trades should be taught to those who join

@9WGRD8ZCommunistfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

I think it should be a choice, but it would be nice to see it more encourage. This applies to every aspect of the military too.

@9W9M5Y4Christian Heritagefrom British Columbia  answered…5mos

Yes, but exempt criminals or kids with troubled pass. Paid service to fund their future education.

@9W8MQKYConservativefrom Ontario  answered…5mos

4 years. That is the length of 1 contract. With numerous benefits after release

@9W7DQV3New Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

There should be a universal requirement for service of at least one year, and up to 2 years. This service should not be limited to the military but include other options, such as working in care homes or education.

@9W6RV5BCommunistfrom Alberta  answered…5mos

One to two years of civil service that is not in the military specifically aimed at teaching youth and young adults how society operates (e.g.: the implementation and maintenance of critical infrastructure)

@Canadian1Rhinocerosfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

Not necessarily military but charity or community service work

@9W3DQVHNew Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

No, service should be a choice, but if people are drafted, both men and women should be part of the draft

@9W2YWCBNew Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

As a Swiss citizen I support the idea of militia military which requires adult citizens to serve in the military. I believe that it would be a good idea to have a similar system so long as those who have not volunteered are only used as reserves and not sent on missions outside of the country.

 @9VYWYNMLibertarianfrom British Columbia  answered…5mos

Perhaps 17 or 18 would ideal for a 1 year non-warzone mandatory training.

@9VXWVZQConservativefrom Nova Scotia  answered…5mos

@9TRYBYPLiberalfrom Nova Scotia  answered…9mos

Every 18 year old citizen be required to provide at least one year of civic service and choose if it's with the military or another government service.

@9TG8JP4Greenfrom Quebec  answered…9mos

Yes, but only for those who do not pursue further education or employment and with less focus on military training and more focus on education and skill development. Service can be continued after the mandatory year if the individual chooses to do so

@9SXCKPRConservativefrom Alberta  answered…10mos

I would make it so that anyone that isn't going to a useful University course to Canada, they would do 3 years of service. The useful degrees would be in Medicine, Education, Law, and very few others. The people in the service would do mostly infrastructure work.

@9RCJ5KYPeople’s Partyfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Should be required for those not pursuing education, training or working beyond secondary school. Or for those on social assistance unable to find a job elsewhere.
