Which passport to use?

So, I will be returning to Taiwan for a month and a half for the first time, since leaving the country when I was 7 years old. I recently applied for Overseas Chinese and renewed my Taiwanese passport and I also have my Canadian passport.

Now, the question is, should I enter Taiwan with my Canadian passport? I heard it's a lot hassle free and there would be no issue with military conscription. But at the same time, from what I gather from this forum, there is still the issue with military conscription if I use my Canadian passport. Is this true? I'm just worried that if I use my Taiwanese passport, they can conscript you into the military and everyone says there will be a lot more problems if I enter with my Taiwanese passport.

Military conscription is being phased out here... in a couple years military service will no longer be obligatory. I don't know the details but I can hardly imagine that it's an issue that they would take so seriously anymore. Then again, it is the government we're talking about....
