This is a video from Dave Canterbury with regards to his/ the reasons he was dropped from Dual Survival - there has been a lot of talk about the wrongs and rights and the whys and where fors of what happened and Dave has had a lot of courage to finally come forward and put the record straight.
Personally I would like to say two things - firstly, as I have always maintained his military history may be faux or misleading but his current bushcraft survival skills are real and that is what interests me - the moral dilemma of faking his past isn't relevant to me, and lets face it there are many so called experts both in the popular culture and ruling schools etc who embellish if not totally lie about their skills and back grounds so he's not alone.
Secondly, I can understand where he is coming from over this as I know in the past I too have made mistakes. In my case I was also naïve about some things related to business and the greed/manipulations of other people, people who sometimes used my naivity and trust to further their own ends. So I will not judge him for that.
I look forward to the new series of Dual Survival (season 3) but it will not detract from my enjoyment of seasons 1 or 2 and it will not stop me watching Dave on Youtube (hell if I was in America I might even do a course for the crack too)
Lastly - everyone deserves a second chance, sadly there are far to many greedy vindictive people in the world who like nothing better than to gossip and put down others as they feel it makes them seem superior in someway ............. well folks I'd rather spend time in the woods with a man like Dave and many so called experts who run some of the various forums and business' out there (that's not to say there aren't some good guys out there who are very good and dedicated to what they do too - but these guys know who they are, and are still my friends and acquaintances lol)
End of the day people be true to yourselves - be the best person you can be every day and sleep easy and if someone doesn't like you or what you do, screw em its their problem not yours!
