Canada moving military sexual misconduct cases into the civilian justice system

Recommended Posts


Fantastic news, and unexpected.



In one of her first acts as Canada's new defence minister, Anita Anand announced today she's transferring the investigation and prosecution of sexual misconduct cases within the Canadian Forces into the civilian justice system.


The move follows a recommendation from retired Supreme Court justice Louise Arbour.



The military has been reeling over a series of sexual misconduct investigations. Since early February 2021, 11 current and former senior Canadian military leaders have been sidelined, investigated or forced into retirement from some of the most powerful and prestigious posts in the defence establishment.


The military is rotten from the top, down, so this will hopefully bring justice to those leaders.
