RESPECT IN THE CAF: TAKE A STAND AGAINST SEXUAL MISCONDUCT ■ Maryse Neilson, MSW RSW, Health Promotion Manager, CFB Esquimalt RitCAF is a program developed by the Strategic Response Team on Sexual Misconduct to address part of the education and training component of Operation Honour. RitCAF is a voluntary, full day workshop for members of the CAF and facilitated by Health Promotion staff and others who have been specifically trained in its delivery. Using transformative learning theory, facilitators engage participants in the opportunity to reflect and develop an increased understanding of sexual misconduct and its continuum of harm in the CAF. Concepts like examining privilege and power are introduced in creative ways and participants gain the capacity to view CAF culture through different lenses, and ultimately to challenge and change it. The facilitators work hard to create an environment where people feel safe to explore topics that may seem uncomfortable or awkward. The continuum of sexual misconduct is a new concept to many people and it’s

important to understand that there are attitudes and behaviours in the continuum that contribute to an overall culture that normalizes the marginalization and diminishment of particular groups of people. RitCAF is all about changing that and talking about the grey areas that seem harmless but are not. Specifically, participants learn about the continuum of sexual misconduct, the impact of sexual misconduct, how to step in as a bystander when you observe sexual misconduct, and how to support victims from a victimcentred approach. At the end of each course, members are asked to reflect on and commit to one action they will begin to do to change the culture of sexual misconduct in the CAF. To date, some change agent actions have included: • “I will no longer laugh or stay silent and squirm at inappropriate jokes – I will calmly and courageously step into the situation and explain

why the joke is inappropriate and contributes to a culture that allows worse stuff to happen”. • “I’m going to pay attention to the language I use – I never realised how male centric it is and how I am eliminating over half the population when I use it. If we all said “womenkind” I would feel excluded…why couldn’t I see that before?” • “I’m going to be brave and stand up for myself more”. • “I’m going to start teaching my kids the language of consent long before sex comes up”. The course has been offered since September 2018 in Esquimalt, three times per month. Due to its popularity and local leadership’s commitment to changing the MARPAC culture, the course will be offered six times per month beginning September 2019. Register through your training coordinator or call 250-363-5621 for more information.

Base museum displays Cdr Simmon’s medals ■ Peter Mallett Lookout Seven medals that once belonged to Second World War hero Commander Edward ‘Ted’ Simmons have returned to his home province on short-term loan to CFB Esquimalt. The medals, including a Distinguished Service Order, Distinguished Service Cross, and a 1939-45 star, were unveiled at a ceremony at the CFB Esquimalt Naval and Military Museum on July 10. Base Commander, Captain (Navy) Sam Sader presided over the ceremony, and Second World War veteran and Battle of the Atlantic survivor, 98-yearold Commander (Retired) Peter Chance was the special guest of honour. The two men pulled away a black curtain revealing the glistening and freshly polished medals inside a cubed glass display case. They are now the focal point of the museum’s new HMCS Beacon Hill exhibit celebrating the River Class frigate and its daring commander Simmons. Simmons was the most highly-decorated member of the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve during the Battle of the Atlantic. His most notable heroics include the thwarting of a German U-Boat attack and boarding and later sinking the submarine once he acquired its code books, exploits which are featured prominently in the museum’s exhibit. “Simmons was an ordinary man who rose to the challenge and made an extraordinary impact during the Second World War,” said Capt(N) Sader. “We are truly honoured to be able to display his medals and it’s great to have the decorations earned here with us today.” Chance, who was attending the event

on behalf of the Naval Association of Canada – Vancouver Island, wore his own rack of medals and awards from his Royal Canadian Navy career, including being named a Chevalier (Knight) of the Ordre national de la Légon d’honneur, France’s highest honor. Like Simmons, Chance fought his own battles against German subs aboard HMCS Skeena as the ship’s navigator. Chance says it was men such as Simmons, coming from other jobs and walks of life, who through perseverance eventually helped turn the tide of the war in favour of the Allies. “He was one of the guys who found himself in a position to take on the opposition and did well,” said Chance. “His exploits tell the story…he was highly respected.”

Cdr Simmons retired in the United Kingdom and his medals remained with a relative following his death in 1988. Despite continued efforts by the Canadian branch of the family to bring them back to Canada, they were eventually sold at auction in England. The Canadian War Museum came to the rescue in 2017 and was able to acquire them. The war museum then agreed to loan the medals to CFB Esquimalt once made aware of the current exhibit at the base museum earlier this year. The CFB Esquimalt Museum has extended its hours of operation and is now open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., until Sept. 2. For more information about the museum and its exhibits visit their website www.navalandmilitarymuseum.org

Home Fire Safety Checklist

CANADA DND MDN

Canadian Forces Fire Marshal

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms ❑ Install working smoke alarms on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas. Install carbon monoxide alarms outside all sleeping areas. It’s the law. ❑ For extra protection, install a smoke alarm in every bedroom and a carbon monoxide alarm on every storey. ❑ Test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms once a month. ❑ Change alarm batteries annually or whenever the low-battery warning sounds. ❑ Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing, testing, maintaining and replacing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

Home Fire Escape Planning ❑ Develop a home fire escape plan and practice it with the entire family. ❑ Make sure everyone knows two ways out of each room, if possible. ❑ Determine who will be responsible for helping young children, older adults or anyone else that may need assistance when escaping. ❑ Choose a meeting place outside, such as a tree or lamp post, where everyone can be accounted for. ❑ Call the fire department from outside the home, from a cell phone or neighbour’s home. ❑ Once out, stay out. Never re-enter a burning building. ❑ Keep all exits in the home clear and easy to use.

Cooking Fire Safety ❑ Always stay in the kitchen when you are cooking. ❑ Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stovetop. ❑ Keep a proper fitting pot lid near the stove when cooking. If a pot catches fire slide the lid over the pot and turn off the stove. Do not move the pot. ❑ Wear tight-fitting or rolled up sleeves when using the stove. Loose dangling clothing can easily catch fire. If your clothing catches fire, stop, drop to the ground and roll over and over to put out the fire.

Other Things to Consider to Prevent Fire in Your Home ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑

Keep matches and lighters out of the sight and reach of children. Always blow out candles before leaving the room. If anyone in the home smokes, smoke outside. Ensure items that can burn are one metre away from space heaters. Avoid overloading the electrical outlets. Extension cords should be used only as a temporary connection.

What’s the deal with

intermittent fasting? By Nicole Houghtaling, RD, Pn1

I’ve been hearing a lot about intermittent fasting. What are the benefits and is this something I should try? – Thomas Dear Thomas: There has definitely been a lot of buzz around the topic of intermittent fasting, making it one of the newer fad diets out there. Intermittent fasting (IF) is essentially a diet that cycles between periods of eating and not eating and is often promoted for weight loss. There are several variations though so it’s important to know the different types and what type we’re talking about. To give you an idea, here’s a quick overview on some of the common variations. Intermittent energy restriction (IER): Periods of energy restriction interspersed with normal energy intake. Alternate day fasting (ADR): “Fasting days” in which no energy-containing food or beverages are consumed, alternating with days where food and beverages are consumed as desired. Alternate day energy restriction (ADER): Energy restriction of 60 -70% below estimated requirements, or a total fast on alternate days. Modified fasting regimens: Consumption of 20 - 25% of energy needs on regularly scheduled “fasting” days. Time restricted feeding (TRF - A.K.A 16:8 diet): Consuming energy intake as desired within specific time windows (from 10 am to 6 pm, for example), which induces fasting periods on a routine basis. Religious fasting: Fasting regimens undertaken for religious or spiritual purposes. What does the research say? Intermittent energy restriction may promote weight loss however, it is no more effective than continuous energy restriction (CER). Continuous energy restriction means consistently

limiting your calories.   Did you know that when you lose weight, you lose fat and muscle?  Studies suggest the overall protein content, rather than the pattern of energy restriction (like intermittent energy restriction vs. continuous energy restriction), is what determines how much fat free mass (muscle) you lose. In other words, you need to make sure you are getting adequate protein to help preserve your muscle mass when you lose weight. IF is counterproductive if you are trying to put on significant muscle mass. It may be challenging to follow specific intermittent fasting diet patterns over time as studies have shown it is difficult to maintain daily living activities, likely due to common side effects including: fatigue, stress, headaches, constipation, dehydration, mood variations and confusion.  Currently there is a lack of evidence regarding the impact of intermittent fasting on health behaviours such as diet, sleep and physical activity. Longterm quality studies are still needed to examine weight maintenance after weight loss and short and long-term quality studies are needed, especially in military populations, to assess the effects of intermittent energy restriction on specific military environmental factors.  So what’s the bottom line? At present there is insufficient evidence to recommend any intermittent energy restriction regimens. It is not clear if long-term IER is a safe, effective method of weight control for overweight or obese individuals, or if IER provides health benefits to people at any weight regardless of weight loss. Military personnel should avoid being on duty in

a fasted state as it can negatively affect safety and operational readiness. Already trying intermittent fasting? A healthy balanced diet is still important. Ensure you are meeting your requirements for important nutrients like fibre, vitamins and minerals and stay hydrated. For reasons including performance and injury prevention, avoid fasting while on duty. There’s nothing wrong with weight loss as a goal but remember that your health is more important than a number on the scale. Sleep, stress management, and physical activity, among other factors, all contribute to weight management and a healthy lifestyle. If you’re looking to learn more about nutrition and/or fad diets, Strengthening the Forces (STF), the CAF’s Health Promotion program, offers quality programs with evidence-based research and skill building. Contact your local health promotion office and take advantage of what they have to offer. https://www.cafconnection.ca/National/ Programs-Services/Health/HealthPromotion-Program.aspx Nicole Houghtaling is a registered dietitian and is currently completing a Masters in Sports Nutrition.  As part of the Strengthening the Forces team she is the Acting Nutrition Wellness Educator and focusses on health promotion nutrition programming for the CAF.

CLUBS Model Railroad Club The model Railway Club started as an N Scale (1/160) NTRAK modular layout in December 1997. Currently the NTRAK layout is 30 plus feet by 40 plus feet. These modules are continuously updated as new techniques and experiences are gained including Digital Command Control (DCC) systems. The N Scale layout is currently completing conversion to DCC but this does not preclude DC locomotives from being run on the layout. The HO Scale (1/87) modular layout is also 30 plus by 40 plus feet and has completed conversion to DCC. Again this does not preclude DC locomotives from enjoying the wonders of the layout. Some of these modules depict logging operations, mining operations and a locomotive servicing facility. Both of these layouts have been on public display and have won multiple awards as “Best Operating Layout”, “Favourite Operating Layout”; and “Best Module” at train shows in Victoria and Nanaimo. Our layout at “Christmas in the Village” is the perennial favourite display at the Saanich Historical Artefacts Society Christmas presentation. The Club actively participates each year in the Victoria Train Show, Westshore Town

Centre Hobby Show, Nanaimo Regional Train Show, Esquimalt Buccaneer Days, MARPAC Expo and the West Coast Welcome. All Active or retired military members, DND and other Government employees are welcome and invited to join the CFB Esquimalt Model Railway Club. We also are allowed limited numbers of others who do not meet the previously noted requirements as well as junior members providing the parent is
