OTTAWA—Canada’s top soldier is issuing the first-ever guidelines for Canadian military personnel on how to deal with child soldiers in advance of deployment to Africa, the Star has learned.
Called the CAF Child Soldiers Doctrine, it is not country-specific but will provide overarching principles to military personnel, no matter what the mission or mandate.
The military’s guidelines will make clear that all Canadian Armed Forces personnel have a legal duty to report any such violations, and it recognizes that the issue of child soldiers “needs to be better addressed within Canadian Forces doctrine.”

Macdonald, Margaret-Ann, "Honours", JAG Newsletter, volume 1, 2003 at p. 7; research note: we worked together in Lahr; very nice person (dixit François Lareau);

"In July 2002, LCol Margaret-Ann Macdonald was awarded the Chief of Staff Commendation for Exceptional
Service by Admiral Sir Ian Garnett, SHAPE Chief of Staff, in recognition of her professional excellence,
primarily in relation to the NATO-led operations in the Balkans.  This prestigious award cited her ceaseless
enthusiasm within the Office of the SHAPE Legal Advisor during a period of almost 5 years, and noted that
her efforts 'consistently showed her to be a master of her legal craft and NATO procedures.'  As well, it cited
her critical value to operators, both in SHAPE and in the field."

MACDONALD, LCol (ret'd) Ralph, 1922-2010, notes on:

After serving in Vancouver and back in Edmonton, he was called to the Alberta Bar in 1956 and transferred to the Judge Advocate
General's branch. Ralph's more than 30 years of service as a legal officer took him to Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Lahr and finally
back to Ottawa. Along the way, he was a minor hockey coach, Cub leader and Group Committee chair. One of his proudest
accomplishments was the two years he spent as president of the Canadian Forces Europe senior hockey league. By 1988, when he
retired at the age of 65, Ralph was the oldest member and last Second World War veteran serving in the Regular Force.

He then began his second career, serving another 10 years as a civilian in the Department of National Defence.

                        Bruce MacGregor, C.D., Q.C., LL.M., LL.B., B.A.

Colonel MacGregor was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia and attended schools in several
communities in Ontario, Alberta, and Nova Scotia, before obtaining a high school
diploma from the Halifax Grammar School. He is a graduate of Dalhousie University
(B.A., Political Science and LL.B.) and the University of Ottawa (LL.M). He has been a
member of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society since 1991.

In 1990, Colonel MacGregor articled with Cox, Downie and Goodfellow in Halifax. He
then practiced law for six years at MacIntosh, MacDonnell and MacDonald in New
Glasgow, Nova Scotia, concentrating on criminal law (as defence counsel and as a
federal and municipal prosecutor). He routinely appeared before Nova Scotia’s Family
Court, Provincial Court, Supreme Court and Court of Appeal. He became a partner in his
firm in 1995.

In 1997, Colonel MacGregor left private practice to join the Office of the Judge Advocate
General (JAG) and assumed the duties of Assistant Deputy Judge Advocate Pacific
Region in Victoria, British Columbia. During this time, he advised the Maritime Pacific
Commander, the Commander Canadian Fleet Pacific, and the various regional bases
including Esquimalt, Comox and Chilliwack. He also prosecuted and defended at
numerous courts martial. Additionally, he sailed with HMCS Regina to the Arabian Gulf

In 2001, Colonel MacGregor was posted to the Directorate of Military Prosecutions in
Ottawa where he prosecuted courts martial, represented the Minister of National Defence
in appeals before the Court Martial Appeal Court, mentored junior prosecutors,
represented the office in media interviews and provided policy and prosecutorial advice
to the Director of Military Prosecutions.

In 2004, Colonel MacGregor was posted to the Directorate of Law Human Resources
where he provided legal advice on personnel and administrative legal matters. Later that
same year, he was tasked to work with the JAG Internal Review Team in order to provide
a departmental response to the First Independent Review by former Chief Justice of
Canada, Antonio Lamer.

In 2006, Colonel MacGregor returned to prosecutions and assumed the position of

In January to July 2009, Colonel MacGregor was deployed to the Sudan as the Force
Legal Advisor to the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS). There he was the sole
legal advisor to the UNMIS Force Commander and his 10,000 military troops in support
of the enforcement of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between North and South
Sudan. For his efforts, Colonel MacGregor was awarded the United Nations Force
Commanders Commendation.

Upon his return to Canada, Colonel MacGregor became the Director of Military Justice
Policy supporting the Judge Advocate General’s legislative mandate to superintend the
administration of Military Justice. This included the development of legislative and
regulatory initiatives, and policy development related to Canada’s military justice system.
After a re-organization of the Military Justice Division, Colonel MacGregor then became
the Director of Military Justice Operations and then assumed the role of Director of
Military Justice Strategic where he assisted in the Office of the JAG’s work with the
Second Independent Review Authority (Mr. Justice Patrick LeSage).

In 2013, Colonel MacGregor was posted to the position of Assistant Deputy Judge
Advocate General Operations. There he assisted the DJAG Operations in the provision of
legal advice in direct support to the planning and conduct of domestic and international
operations. In 2014, Colonel MacGregor was promoted to his current rank and assumed
the duties of DJAG Operations.

On 20 October 2014, Colonel MacGregor was appointed by the Minister of National
Defence to the position of the Director of Military Prosecutions pursuant to section 165.1
of the National Defence Act. He is is responsible for the preferring of all charges to be
tried by court martial and for the conduct of all prosecutions at courts martial. The
Director of Military Prosecutions also acts as counsel for the Minister in respect of
appeals before the Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada and before the Supreme Court
of Canada. Between 2015 and 2019, Colonel MacGregor has appeared as counsel before
the Supreme Court on a number of significant cases affecting the military justice system
specifically and the criminal justice system more broadly.

Colonel MacGregor is married and has two sons. He has been a committed community
volunteer in various projects for over thirty years.

Colonel Bruce MacGregor, Director of Military Prosecutions and Co-Chair of the International Association of Prosecutors’ Network
of Military Prosecutors, was at UN Headquarters in New York on April 9-10, 2018 for high-level expert meetings on “Bringing terrorists
to justice before national courts: developing guidelines to facilitate the collection of information and evidence by military and other
relevant criminal justice actors within a rule-of-law framework”.

The Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate, acting in collaboration with the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism
– The Hague and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime and within the framework of the Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force
Working Group on Legal and Criminal Justice Responses to Terrorism, has launched a project that aims to strengthen criminal justice
responses to terrorism by enhancing the role of the military in supporting the collection, sharing, and use of information and evidence.

The Network of Military Prosecutors (NMP), which was officially launched at the 22nd International Association of Prosecutors
(IAP) Annual Conference in September 2017, embraces prosecutors from the military and the civilian justice systems and is available
to all members of the IAP dealing with military criminal cases, including prosecutors belonging to organizational members. The network
has been growing steadily, welcoming new members from Italy, Israel, Romania, Spain and Greece, and is continuing to reach out to
civilian prosecution services that are dealing with military criminal cases as well as The International Society for Military Law and the
Law of War.

“You deserted in a fit of pique and (that) persisted over many hours,” said Gibson. He likened de Jong’s behaviour to a child who “picks
up their marbles and goes home.”

The judge said discipline in the Canadian Armed Forces is crucial. Every officer is not only supposed to instill discipline in the troops he
or she leads, but must show self-discipline and that is what de Jong lacks, he said.

“You committed one of the most grievous breaches of trust.

“You are not a young sailor flush with the immaturity of youth,” he admonished.

“This is not behaviour that can be tolerated in any member, much less a commissioned officer. One does not run away.

On October 29, 2012, I approved the Chief of the Defence Staff’s recommendation to establish the position of the Canadian Forces Judge Advocate
General at the rank of Major-General from that of Brigadier-General and to promote the Judge Advocate General, Major-General Blaise Cathcart, to that rank.

The elevation of the Judge Advocate General’s rank is a significant recognition of the importance of the Judge Advocate General’s position in performing
two unique roles set out in the National Defence Act: legal advisor in matters relating to military law and superintendent of the administration of military
justice in the Canadian Forces. In the complex global environment within which the Canadian Forces operate, security challenges are more diverse and
complex than ever before. In these increasingly dynamic circumstances, mission success remains inseparable from adherence to the rule of law. Against
this backdrop, the role of the uniformed legal advisor as a source of independent and objective legal advice, takes on growing importance. The Judge
Advocate General is a key strategic advisor in the decision-making process.

 The use of force by soldiers deployed on United Nations peacekeeping missions is
controlled by Rules of Engagement (ROE). Depending on the mandate, some peacekeeping
missions have allowed peacekeepers to use force only in self-defence. In areas torn by civil
war or ethnic strife, soldiers have sometimes witnessed crimes and violent acts perpetrated
  against defenceless non-combatants. Depending on the mandate of the peacekeeping force
  and on the ROE that have been prepared for the mission, soldiers may be precluded from
intervening due to their ROE. This paper argues that the restrictive nature of peacekeeping
 ROE may create a situation where soldiers deployed on peacekeeping operations must deal
with ethical and moral dilemmas. The potential for such situations is so widespread that this
phenomena is not just isolated, but instead should be considered a real concern for all soldiers
deployed on peacekeeping operations

As well, some Liberals suggested that Eggleton felt it important to look especially decisive in order to win the confidence of senior officers.
From the outset, the Liberals expected the report to be tough on them - and suggested, in part, that the commissioners were motivated by
their frustration over the decision to end the hearings. "We gave these guys $25 million and 27 months, and it still wasn't enough for them,"
complained one PMO official. "How much is enough?"

1. On 21 Oct 10, Mr. Russell Williams, former Commander of 8 Wing, was sentenced to two concurrent terms of life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years for the first-degree murders of Cpl Marie France Comeau and Mrs. Jessica Lloyd.

4. With the conviction and sentencing completed, and following my recommendation, the Governor General has revoked his commission, an extraordinary and severe decision that may constitute a first of its kind in Canadian history.

5. Further, the following actions will now be taken:
A. Stripping Mr. Williams of his medals
B. Termination and recovery of his pay from the date of arrest
C. Denial of severance pay; and
D. His prompt release from the CF under “service misconduct” – which is the most serious release item possible.
6. As a consequence of his release from the CF for “service misconduct” and of the revocation of his commission, Mr. Williams no longer possesses a rank as a member of the CF.

7. I wish to point out that under the CF superannuation act, there are no grounds to revoke his pension and a court martial would not have any impact on these accrued benefits.

8. Some have questioned why Mr. Williams has not also been charged under the military justice system. I believe we need to understand why this is so. This is because there is no jurisdiction under the code of service discipline to try persons charged with murder where those murders took place in Canada. Mr. Williams was therefore tried and convicted of all of these 88 charges under the Criminal Code of Canada by a civilian court. Additionally there will be no further court martial on these matters because the National Defence Act specifically prevents an individual from being tried by court martial where the offence or any other substantially similar offence arising out of the same underlying facts have been previously dealt with by a civilian court. This basic principle sometimes known as “double jeopardy” is fundamental within our civilian and military justice system. With his current convictions and sentence to life imprisonment justice has already been served.

In the autumn of 1993 the United Nations (U.N.) authorised the deployment of a United Nations Assistance Mission
to Rwanda (UNAMIR) to supervise the transition to peace in accordance with the terms of the Arusha Accord signed
earlier that year.  Unfortunately, the conditions were not met and genocide resulted in the massacre of approximately
800,000 people. Within the U.N. Headquarters, there was considerable debate as to what action to take. The options
ranged from a complete withdrawal of the force to its reinforcement.  In the early weeks of what later became defined
as genocide, the U.N. Force Commander, General Dallaire reports that he received the worst of all possible orders – to
withdraw the force. General Dallaire refused the order on the grounds that to do so would result in the slaughter of
approximately 30,000 people under the protection of his UNAMIR force. This paper argues that, based on the laws of
armed conflict (LOAC) and other international laws and conventions, General Dallaire had a legal responsibility to
refuse this order as being unlawful.

If your schooling or work was away from your family, what was/is this like? I did two tours with the Canadian Forces away from my family (Bosnia and the Persian Gulf). During Canada’s response
to the 9/11 attacks, I was away from my family for 7 months. It was difficult but we all survived. As I was starting to be away from my family (more and more), this eventually contributed to my decision to take the job here in Sudbury.

Discussion on perfidy in IHL, particularly as the concept is applied to deceptive lighting of warships at sea.  An analysis of conventional and customary IHL
will demonstrate that many ambiguities and grey areas exist in the laws that purport to distinguish between permissible ruses of war and illegal acts of perfidy.
An investigation into the practice of deceptively lighting naval vessels during armed conflicts will reveal that some more careful analysis of the practice might
be necessary for Canadian naval commanders if they wish to avoid violating perfidy prohibitions.

__________"Of Wolves and Sheep: A Purposive Analysis of Perfidy Prohibitions in International Humanitarian Law", (2012) 17(3) Journal of Conflict and Security Law 439-463; title noted but article not consulted (3 July 2016);


A combatant in an armed conflict, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, can seek to gain a tactical or strategic advantage by resort to deception and trickery.
International Humanitarian Law (IHL), however, distinguishes between permissible ruses of war and illegal acts of perfidy. How, then, should combatants
conduct themselves so as to avoid violating IHL’s perfidy prohibitions? This article argues that belligerents should interpret prohibitions against perfidy
in a purposive manner (looking to causative links that may exist between perfidy and harm) in order to avoid eroding the protection that IHL affords to
designated groups. A close analysis of potentially perfidious land, air and sea combat practices will further reveal that some accepted practices may
need to be reassessed and/or ceased if States wish to comply with purposively interpreted perfidy prohibitions.

When Madsen applied for the defence department's R.B. Byers Fellowship at the end of 1995, officials were making erroneous statements about Canadian military
 history by declaring the Somali incident to be the first of its kind.

"It just wasn't true," Madsen says. "Military history is one of these areas they've ignored . . . . These aren't new problems."

Canadian soldiers have been involved in other criminal acts, including the rape of civilians in the Korean war, and the murder of nine prisoners in the Boer War.

Madsen says the army tends to assign blame to individuals and look no further. His report, however, will propose several systemic changes.

Parliament must, he says, take a more active role in shaping defence policy and limit the role of bureaucratic "mandarins." One question that's never been
satisfactorily addressed is why Canadian soldiers -- particularly an airborne regiment -- were in Somalia in the first place. Just because Canada has a history of
peacekeeping involvement doesn't mean the military should take on every assignment that comes up, he says.

A reorganization of the Judge Advocate General's office, the main unit in the defence department that deals with legal matters, would prevent some of the
 "stagnation" that has reduced the office's effectiveness, he says. For example, bringing in civilian lawyers would help in such areas as real estate law, international law and contracts.

"There is a myth that soldiers can only talk to other soldiers," Madsen says.

Because each nation has different laws and traditions, it is hard to make generalizations about military justice applicable to all, though commonalities
certainly exist. Each armed forces is unique in character, and even within those, individual service environments may have distinct attitudes and methods
in regard to the maintenance of discipline. The historical trend has been toward greater uniformity across armed forces and closer mirroring of civilian
criminal jurisprudence, in response to societal change. Reform of military law periodically becomes an issue when it falls too far behind or when some
particular event happens that shakes public confidence in the military. Sherrill 1970 notes the practical nature of military justice as a separate form of
legal jurisprudence that serves the particular needs of militaries in being operationally effective. Bishop 1974 describes the public pressure that can build
when doubts are raised about militaries that have not performed according to expectations and the disappointment in the administration of military justice.
Many writers are critical of military justice, premised either on the need for improvement or on the backwardness and supposed conservatism of military
institutions. Other writers focus on the general aim and mechanics of military justice (for our purposes here, as practiced in the United States; other nations
have similar how-to works). Davidson 1999 provides a basic guide to the practice of military criminal law geared toward a predominantly nonlegal audience,
especially those either in or entering the military profession. Morris 2010 meets a similar need and, in focus and content, reflects the broader interpretation
given to military justice today compared with earlier decades. Military justice, or rather military legality, touches upon many operational matters of interest
to militaries, because the requirement for discipline and good behavior in the military context cannot be divorced from the core mandate of armed forces.
Historical treatment of military justice is still catching up to this broader focus and to changes to military law itself. It is a very specialized field that requires
some knowledge of the law and how it has been practiced in armed forces over time. In the early 21st century, good overviews focused on the history are yet

___________on Chris Madsen, see  HARRIS, Greg, "Canada's troops lack solid grasp of military law",  University of Calgary Gazette, 28 April 1997, vol. 27, number 2; article about the work of Chris Madsen; available at (accessed 3 March 2017);

Giving Canadian soldiers a stronger grounding in military law would help prevent other tragedies like Somalia, says a U of C post-doctoral fellow.

Chris Madsen, a research fellow in the U of C's Strategic Studies Program, will make that recommendation and others in a report to the Department of National Defence in August.

He says the torture and murder of Somali teen Shidane Arone in 1993 can be seen, in part, as "symptomatic of a training deficiency.

"The Canadian army calls itself a professional force, but somewhere along the line they forgot professionalism is something you continually have to work on," says Madsen.

A soldier's knowledge of military law tends to begin and end with rules of engagement, but proper interpretation of those rules requires a sound knowledge of military law, he says. And in the last 30 years, there has been a "gradual slide" in the way military law has been taught to service personnel.

When Madsen applied for the defence department's R.B. Byers Fellowship at the end of 1995, officials were making erroneous statements about Canadian military history by declaring the Somali incident to be the first of its kind.

"It just wasn't true," Madsen says. "Military history is one of these areas they've ignored . . . . These aren't new problems."

Canadian soldiers have been involved in other criminal acts, including the rape of civilians in the Korean war, and the murder of nine prisoners in the Boer War.

Madsen says the army tends to assign blame to individuals and look no further. His report, however, will propose several systemic changes.

Canadian newspapers, after interviews with former Canadian officers and other witnesses, presented strong evidence of active Canadian participation in the execution.
Conseqently, Brigadier William J. Lawson, then Judge Advocate General, appointed Group Captain J.H. Hollies to undertake a full departmental investigation.  This
military legal officer searched relevant Canadian documents, and made a three-day whirlwind trip to West Germany.  Based on Hollies' findings, an embarrassed Hellyer
confirmed, in the House of Commons on 21 December 1966, Canadian involvement in the execution, but suggested "that in view of the fact it is now over 20 years since
the war ended, nothing is to be gained by carrying this matter further." [p. 108, footnotes omitted]

Some worry that the Defence Department is further ensuring that outsiders can't see how it investigates itself
with recently announced changes to the military justice system. Those changes give the Canadian Forces, for
the first time, the jurisdiction to try sexual assault cases involving military personnel in Canada.

But Cmdr. John Maguire, who was involved in the development of the new policy changes in the military
justice system, said the Defence Department decided it needed jurisdiction over sex assaults because such
incidents are damaging to a unit's cohesion and impair military efficiency. He said the NIS is in charge of
investigating sex assaults.

Court martial rulings, he also pointed out, are often more harsh than civilian courts in dealing with sexual

Cmdr. Maguire also dismissed concerns that because those in the military justice system wear a uniform
and salute senior officers, there is a lack of independence. "We have a strong sense of duty to uphold law,"
he said. "We are obliged under regulation to enforce law. Every member of the (Canadian Forces) is required
to report infractions. There is a code of ethics."

In this thesis the attempt is made to formulate a workable definition of the Crown-Aboriginal fiduciary relationship and the nature of the duties
it imposes having regard to the undertaking which is presumed to exist at the heart of the relationship. To that end, the Crown's "general" duty
of loyalty, with its attendant requirement to avoid a conflict of interest, is distinguished from the more "specific" duties which may arise whenever
the Crown purports to exercise a discretion in relation to particular Aboriginal interests. A consideration of the effectiveness of the fiduciary
construct in this area is also undertaken through an assessment of the manner in which Canadian courts at al levels have approached the requirement
to apply fiduciary principles to the Crown-Aboriginal relationship. The case summaries presented highlight a number of theoretical and practical
problems which the courts have yet to address fully. The courts' response to the no-conflict rule is of particular concern in view of the manysources
of conflict in the modern Crown-Aboriginal relationship. (Abstract shortened by UMI.) (source: AMICUS catalogue)

Ilario Maiolo is a lawyer and part-time-professor at the University of Ottawa. Previously, he worked for the Canadian Red
Cross as Senior Legal Advisor before becoming the Director of government relations, policy and international human rights.
Before joining the Red Cross, Ilario worked as a Consultant for Global Affairs Canada. He also gave conferences in
universities across Canada on the themes of international human rights and international law regarding natural and human
disasters and published two articles on this matter. Ilario is a member of the Barreau du Québec and the Law Society of
Ontario. He studied at the University of Ottawa and is licensed in civil (LL.L.) and Common Law (LL.B.). He also holds
a masters degree in international law from the University of Geneva.

___________on Maiolo, Ilario, see syllabus of  course CML4132 - INTERNAT. HUMANITARIAN LAW that he teaches at the University of Ottawa, available at https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/15/index.php?option=com_course&catid=430&task=view&course_id=2516&siscode=CML4132&sissection=%20%20&sissession=20171&sissubsession=H%20&lang=en (accessed 27 December 2018);


The course addresses the philosophy, principles and practical application of International Humanitarian Law (IHL).
Also known as the law of war, or the law of armed conflict, international humanitarian law consists of the international
rules governing the conduct of hostilities, the methods and means of warfare, and international rules designed to protect
the victims of armed conflict.  The course will begin by placing international humanitarian law within a broader
theoretical and legal context. The course will consider the historical development of IHL, its sources and its fundamental
principles, such as the principles of humanity, military necessity, distinction between civilians and combatants, and proportionality.

The course will then examine  specific conventions and issues, including the four 1949 Geneva Conventions and their
historical antecedents; the 1977 Protocols; and the laws of the Hague. Students will then be called upon to consider some
contemporary challenges, such as the legality of the use of nuclear weapons; the environmental consequences of armed
conflict; the emergence of cyberwarfare; the protection of journalists, humanitarian agencies and peacekeepers; the status
of ‘unlawful combatants’; the protection of cultural property; and the specific protection of women and children.

It took another year, almost 21/2 years after the initial directive had been implemented, to finalize a
command and control policy. The exact reasons why the process was drawn out are obscure, but
it appears
as though there were snags discovered by the judge advocate general staff over the exact
authority of the Chief of the Defence Staff to command. At one point it even appeared that
the Chief of the
Defence Staff might only have the authority to advise in the command of the CF
as opposed to actually
doing so.  [at p. 61]

When it comes to the mercy kill incident in October 2008 that would change his life, Semrau abruptly and briefly
switches to reprinting what is available in the public record from his court martial, deliberately declining to provide a
firsthand account. In an interview with CBC in September 2012, Semrau asserted that some memories were difficult to
deal with, and that that particular incident is something he was not willing to talk about. But at the same time, he writes
that he felt he was unfairly not provided with a right during his court martial to recount what had happened. But neither
does he do it in the book – and this is very odd.

Semrau holds the investigative process that led to his demotion and dismissal in extremely low regard. He
wonders if any of the 􀏐ive members of his court martial had “ever been shot at”, “heard a bullet” or “been literally soaked
in another man’s blood, or held a fellow soldier as he was dying.” These are powerful words, but they lack explanatory
power as to why he continues to not provide us with his side of the story. He does not provide the reader with the details
of that particular incident, and thus the reader cannot fully ever – while perhaps wanting to – empathize with him and
his actions. Perhaps he did not want to use the dead insurgent as an excuse for his behaviour in an issue that became so
politicized, saying that the “truth of that moment will always be between me and the insurgent.” Or perhaps he invokes
a battle􀏐ield exceptionalism, in line with those who believe that those who have experienced the reality of combat stand
apart from those who have not. (p. 42)

Canadian soldiers have served their country for centuries, and for the most part they have done so honourably and loyally. Yet, on certain occasions,
their conduct has been anything but honourable. Whether by disobeying their legal orders, terrorizing the local population, or committing crimes in
general, some soldiers have embodied the very antithesis of appropriate military conduct. Covering examples of unsavoury behaviour in the
representatives of our military forces from the War of 1812 to the immediate aftermath of the First World War, The Apathetic and the Defiant reveals
that disobedience and mutiny have marked all of the major conflicts in which Canada has participated. Canadian military indiscipline has long been
 overshadowed by the nation's victories and triumphs ... until now (source:http://www.dundurn.com/books/apathetic_and_defiant )

Deployment of Legal Advisers
26. Military legal advisers accompany all Canadian Forces deployed operations
and provide IHL advice on the conduct of military operations at the tactical level.
Additionally, legal advisors advise all levels of the chain of command that are
involved in the planning and conduct of military operations. Specifically, military
legal advisers must conduct a legal review of all operational plans and ROE prior
to their approval by the chain of command. Legal advisers also provide legal
advice on all targeting decisions requiring consideration by a Targeting Directive
at all levels of command. Within the Canadian Forces, military legal officers
belong to the Office of the Judge Advocate General and are under the command
of the Judge Advocate General, a General Officer who is statutorily responsible
to the Minister of National Defence. Consequently Canadian Forces legal officers
are not a part of or subject to the direction of the military chain of command. They
are able to provide independent legal advice to military commanders

"POE488 The Law of Armed Conflict

"This course gives students a solid knowledge of the law regarding the use of force in international and non-international armed conflicts. Following an examination
of the situation of the Law of Armed Conflict within the broader context of Public International Law, there will be a general discussion of the general concepts of the
LOAC and its two branches, the jus ad bellum (the right to the use of force) and the jus in bello (the law applicable in conflict). A study of the rules includes their
applicability in operational situations, with reference to issues including the notion of combatants, prisoners of war, the treatment of civilians, the obligation to limit
unnecessary suffering and damage, the legality of certain weapons, and special cases such as child-soldiers and mercenaries. The course concludes with an examination
of means of enforcing the law, including national courts, ad hoc tribunals and the International Criminal Court.

College of Canada (RMC) and the Canadian Defence Academy (CDA). All courses are available online as well as some in class options.

POE 486 (Course Code),  Air and Space Law, This is a course of Royal Military College of Canada Division of Continuing Studies, Royal Military College of Canada, PO Box 17000, Station Forces, Kingston, ON K7K 7B4; Department of Political Science; see https://www.rmcc-cmrc.ca/sites/default/files/rmcbmas-cmrbasm-bil_3.pdf (accessed 26 March 2017);

"This course is an introduction to air and space law. The primary focus is the international and national law applicable to air operations and outer space activities, particularly
of a military nature. It also considers historical and political factors in the development of these legal regimes. The international law concepts will be instilled by reference to
the various applicable international conventions and legal principles, such as the Charter of the United Nations and the sources and nature of public international law. The study
of public air law will focus on the Chicago Convention of 1944 and the 1963 Tokyo Convention stream.  The Warsaw (1929) and Montreal (1999) Conventions relating to civil
aviation liability provide the basis for the private international air law study.  For space rights, the five major treaties governing that domain will be studied, along with the work
of the UN General Assembly and the UN Committee on the Peaceful Use of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS).  Outer space activities such as military uses and remote sensing will be
considered, as will the rights and obligations of rescue and liability.  Given the legal importance of and similarities between the outer space and air regimes and that of the oceans, the law of the sea will also be the object of analysis and discussion.

MANULAK, Michael W., The Kosovo crisis and Canadian foreign policy: an agenda for intervention, M.A. Carleton University 2009, vi, 119 leaves : charts ; 29 cm; thesis not consulted yet;


This thesis employs John W. Kingdon's multiple-streams model of policy agenda setting and alternative specification to analyze Canada's policy response to
ethnic conflict in Kosovo in 1998/1999. By using an extensive program of interviews with former policy actors and public source documents, the thesis argues
that it was a convergence of independent problem, policy, and political dimensions that caused the Kosovo intervention to emerge on the Canadian agenda.
The research interviews contribute a comprehensive insider's view of events as they developed in Ottawa.

On 3 March 1870, Elzéar served as a member of the court martial for Thomas Scott,
who was accused of treason against the provisional government in the Red River. 35
Scott was an Orangeman who had recently immigrated to Red River from Upper Canada
and protested violently against Métis land rights.36  Scott not only was in support of the
Canadian government’s claiming of Métis land to be redistributed to Ontario immigrants,
but voiced racist and anti-Catholic sentiments.37  On the day following the trial, Elzéar,
with other members of the court, escorted Scott outside the walls of Upper Fort Garry and
executed him by firing squad. 38

For the first time, former Canadian soldiers are speaking publicly about being tortured at the hands of the Canadian military

The men say that in February 1984 they were among 33 young recruits who were stripped naked, crowded into small military
 jail cells with windows open, denied food and, for up to two days, repeatedly sprayed with cold water. For more than 40 hours
 they were forced to listen to loud rock music.

On the afternoon of 7 June 1944, Lorne Brown, a private serving with the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division in Normandy, was bayoneted to death while trying
to surrender to troops of Nazi Germany's Tlite 12th SS Division 'Hitler Youth.' Over the next ten days, more than a hundred and fifty Canadian soldiers were
brutally murdered after capture by the 12th SS. Despite months of post-war investigation by Allied courts, however, only two senior officers of the 12th SS
were ever tried for war crimes.

Drawing extensively on archival sources, Howard Margolian reveals the full account of an atrocious chapter in history and exposes the causes - an inept and
indifferent Canadian military justice system
, and a Canadian government all too willing to let bygones be bygones - of the flagrant inaction that followed.
Highly praised for both its meticulous research and its engaging passion, this book will resonate with veterans, those interested in war crimes, military buffs,
and historians. [emphasis in red bold added]

There is unfortunately little appetite by senior leaders to find solutions to technical jurisdictional issues involving
our mandate. The Judge Advocate General (JAG), who is the key legal advisor to the chain of command,showed
us his hand when he bluntly declared to us months after my appointment in 1998 that “the field was occupied”
and that there was no room for the kind of independent oversight we were pursuing. The last seven years have
shown that, in fact, not only was the field unoccupied but it proved to be fertile and ready to accommodate an
office to truly serve the needs of the troops. Unfortunately, all too often, senior leadership has not been able to
divorce itself from the JAG mindset and help us work the field and provide the Office with the tools for it to
really flourish. (p. 13)

The second kind of deficiency is far less defensible. When the position of Director General of the CF Grievance
Administration was established, it was set up to function under the authority of the Judge Advocate General (JAG).
It is the JAG, of course, who provides legal advice to the chain of command on matters that may end up being grieved.
It is also the JAG who provides advice to the initial grievance authority on how to respond to grievances. In effect,
the very body that assists in making decisions that may be grieved, or the grievance decisions under appeal, was given
command over the body that would ultimately and finally be deciding the grievances that remain unsettled. This was
a spectacular and obvious conflict. The simple fact that this system was adopted reveals a deficit in understanding about
the importance and nature of independent oversight. Indeed, it smacks of the kind of “trust us” attitude that is resistant
to oversight. It was only because of the intercession of Chief Justice Lamer, who pointed out the conflict, that this system
was changed. The CF Grievance Administration now falls under the command of the Vice Chief of the Defence Staff.

Still, this deficiency has not been remedied effectively. As its website reveals, the JAG continues to provide legal advice
to the CF Grievance Administration. Indeed a former JAG lawyer continues to hold the Director General Grievance
Administration position. The same body that may have advised the chain of command on matters leading to grievances,
or have advised the initial authority on how to respond, advises the CF Grievance Administration and ultimately the CDS
on what to do about it. Unfortunately, the “correction” that took place after the Five Year Review was half-hearted and
superficial. It is evident that the CF Grievance Administration needs independence from JAG influence and access to
independent legal advice in deciding grievances. (p. 23)

In spite of the case that I made, Departmental legal advisers, after consultation with Canadian Forces lawyers and
commanders, prepared a mandate that bore no relationship to the principles I had identified. The initial draft mandate
I was offered crafted an ineffective, feeble authority for the Office. The proposed mandate would have cast the Ombudsman,
as a senior JAG lawyer once put it to me, as a “consigliere”-type backroom intervener gently offering the chain of command
non-intrusive nuggets of advice from time to time. The mandate would have prevented the Ombudsman from conducting
investigations. The Ombudsman was to be confined to making informal inquiries, and was to refer matters back to the chain
of command with a recommendation for a board of inquiry or summary investigation. This was not civilian oversight. The
Office was treated as if it was to be cosmetic, a mere pretence of civilian involvement while the military would continue to
decide military matters, without accountability or real input. To make matters worse, in spite of what was widely understood
at the time to be a military culture that was resistant to oversight and change, the mandate was not to be supported by any
directive to members and the chain of command to co-operate with the Office.

Instead, only a platitudinous promise in a
directive from the Minister that CF authorities would be collegial and collaborative was included.  I could not accept this.
Faced with our hopelessly conflicting positions, the Minister of National Defence asked that we enter into negotiations with
military and departmental lawyers about the mandate for the Office. (p. 27)


The fact is that the Canadian Forces are using solicitor-client privilege in a self-serving way. When members or the chain
 of command consult with JAG in the course of their duties before acting, the human being doing the consulting is not the
client. The Canadian Forces is. While it is true that legal privilege does exist even between government lawyers and the
departments being advised, the Ombudsman is not an outsider.  The Office of the Ombudsman is independent of the chain
of command but is part of the military apparatus. In a very real sense, to invoke privilege against a DND Ombudsman is
like one arm of an organization invoking it against another arm of the same organization. Moreover, the Ombudsman is the
delegate of the Minister of National Defence. Invoking solicitor-client privilege against the Ombudsman is like invoking
that privilege against the Minister himself. Can you imagine a general saying, “Sorry Minister, but I cannot answer your
question because we acted on legal advice from the JAG.” In truth, use of solicitor-client privilege to shield information
from the Ombudsman where the client is the Canadian Forces is an opportunistic subterfuge calculated to hide information,
but it is a subterfuge we are being met with.(p. 30)

The military was disorganized and secretive in 2002 in dealing with OSI [Operational Stress Injury].
According to Alberta’s public examination into the suicide of Cpl. Shaun Collins, we’re exactly
where we were in 2002.

You’d think the chain of command might want to hear what presiding provincial court Judge Jody Moher
would like to recommend about preventing similar deaths when she reports back in a few months.

But no. Leave it the Judge Advocate General lawyers to want to gag the presiding judge in making recommendations,
making the idiotic and wrong-headed argument that the province does not have jurisdiction over the military.
Sounds like an act of desperation to avoid dealing with OSI once again. Plus ça change…

Former Federal Court of Appeal and Court Martial Appeal justice Gilles Letourneau, who also headed the Somalia public inquiry in 1995,
told me last week that smart public policy would suggest that sexual assault cases be left to civilian courts due to their seriousness and the
much-greater expertise of civilian prosecutors. I agree, especially given Maclean’s exposé of covered-up rampant sex abuse in the military.
In response to that, then-chief of defence staff Maurice Baril admonished military officers in an open letter that “Canadians demand a higher
standard of behaviour from members in uniform, and so do I.”

But let’s think about it and ask ourselves: Have we really saddled our military with too much oversight?  The military has an ombudsman,
but it’s a far cry from the parliamentary inspector general recommended by the Somalia inquiry in the 1990s. The office operates as an internal
body and has none of the statutory powers and independence of a parliamentary ombudsman.The Canadian Grievances External Review
Committee, run by a former lieutenant colonel, can make non-binding recommendations to the chief of defence staff on grievances from the
rank and file. The Military Complaints Commission offers similar avenues of complaints and investigations that civilian police have to contend with.

Maybe Thibault’s beef had to do with a fatality inquiry report released almost at the same time as he was airing his beef about checks and balances.
Military lawyers had attempted to stop the provincial inquiry on the absurd basis that the province had no jurisdiction over the federal government.
Provincial inquests about deaths in federal penitentiaries are routine and go unchallenged.

OTTAWA – Le droit à l’autodéfense — même préventive — justifie la légalité de la campagne aérienne en Syrie en l’absence de «consentement explicite»
du président Bachar el-Assad, a plaidé le ministre fédéral de la Défense.

Le Canada agira donc en conformité avec le droit international lorsqu’il effectuera des frappes dans l’espace aérien syrien dans l’objectif d’«éliminer» la
menace que représente le groupe armé État islamique (ÉI), a exposé mercredi Jason Kenney.

«Nos opérations militaires en Syrie sont justifiées en vertu de l’article 51 de la Charte des Nations unies, précisément en ce qui a trait au droit naturel de
légitime défense, individuelle ou collective», a-t-il dit en point de presse.

Cet avis juridique a été fourni au ministre Kenney par le juge-avocat général, qui est l’avocat militaire principal des Forces armées canadiennes (FAC).

Military lawyers—lawyers who are legal officers in the Canadian Forces—
are virtually ignored in the Canadian legal literature. This article assesses
what appear to be the most striking potential legal ethics issues facing
military lawyers. Several of these issues arise because military lawyers are
both lawyers and military officers at the same time, and therefore face two
sets of obligations that interact in complex ways. Some issues, however, arise
because of the special practice contexts of military lawyers, for example,
advising military commanders on the law of armed conflict. As context for
this discussion, the article examines the relationship and tension between
the Judge Advocate General and the Minister of Justice. It concludes with
recommendations for amendments to the rules of professional conduct and
the legislation governing the Canadian Forces to resolve these ethical issues.
The article also proposes legislative amendments to clarify the relationship,
and reduce the tension, between the Judge Advocate General and the Minister
of Justice.

Description: NDP justice critic Svend Robinson, Liberal status of women critic Mary Clancy and Liberal MP Sheila Copps also want the military's
justice system reviewed, saying it allows two standards of justice for Canadians. While "the military has to deal with military matter," [George Rideout]
said, in [Christian Pepin]'s case, the crime "occurred outside of Canada and outside the base in a foreign country. The lady involved was a civilian. It
seems to have been a civilian crime committed in Hungary." Black & White Photo; CP; NDP MP Svend Robinson ... objects to sentencing.

During its 1999-2000 term on the United Nations Security Council, Canada helped launch the Council's "Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict"
agenda.  This aimed to reduce civilian war casualties through better respect for international humanitarian law [IHL].  This article reviews the agenda's
origins and evolution ten years on.  The authors focus on  Canada's  contributions in increasing the Council's efforts to protect civilians, with three main
assertions.  First,  Canada had a key role in creating and promoting the agenda, an important IHL initiative.  Second, the agenda is well established in the
Council's work, but needs further effort to ensure greater impact in specific situations. Third, Canada could develop the agenda and improve respect for
IHL if  it joins the Security Council for the 2011-2012 term, picking up its "unfinished business" from its last Council term.

Calgary military reservist Darryl Watts won’t have to serve jail time for his role in a deadly Afghan training exercise
three years ago, a judge ruled Wednesday.


Instead, Watts was stripped of his rank as major in the Canadian Forces and reduced two levels to a lieutenant.

Cmdr. Peter Lamont said the jail term sought by the prosecution was too harsh, but Watts required more than the
simple reprimand sought by the defence.

The detainees' imbroglio figured prominently in the resignation of defence minister Gordon O'Connor. It prompted revelations by diplomat
Richard Colvin that tore holes in the government's credibility. It prompted a mea culpa by Chief of the Defence Staff Walter Natynczyk.
It was a factor behind Stephen Harper's much-regretted decision to prorogue Parliament, a move that sparked a national protest. It led to
an extraordinary ruling from House Speaker Peter Milliken condemning the government for breach of parliamentary privilege in its refusal
to release uncensored documents.

Since then, the Canadian government has avoided all accountability. This is our unfinished business", Open Canada . Org, 16 October 2015, available at https://www.opencanada.org/features/how-canada-failed-afghan-detainees/ (accessed 29 December 2017);

The government of Stephen Harper vociferously resisted — and systematically blocked — all efforts at transparency and accountability.
Citing operational security concerns, it refused to provide uncensored information to the public, Parliament, the Federal Court and the
Military Police Complaints Commission (MPCC). It used court challenges to prevent the MPCC from investigating the policy decisions
behind the transfer of Canadian-held prisoners to Afghan torturers. It also thwarted an investigation by the House of Commons special
committee on Afghanistan, first by refusing to disclose documents and then by shutting down the committee when the Conservatives
won a majority in 2011.

How could Canada have strayed so far from its bedrock principles of respect for human rights and the rule of law? Through persistent
obfuscation, Prime Minister Harper has sought to avoid any accountability for alleged grave breaches of international and Canadian
laws prohibiting torture.

Only a public inquiry — if not by Harper, then by his successor — will allow us to understand what went so terribly wrong in Kandahar,
and how to ensure that it never happens again. Our common humanity demands no less.

The key note address was given by Rear-Admiral Jennifer Bennett, the Director General of the Canadian Armed Forces Strategic
Response Team on Sexual Misconduct. She focussed on steps the CAF have taken and continue to take to recruit, retain and
integrate women, and she described the campaign to address the “sexualized culture” as described in the Deschamps Report, in
the CAF. The address was followed by an engaging panel on the challenges of sexual assault proceedings from the perspective
of a military prosecutor (Maj Maureen Pecknold), a civilian defence lawyer (Ms. Anne London-Weinstein) and a civilian lawyer
who regularly represents victims of sexual assault, (Mr. Phillip Millar). The panel was moderated by Commander Martin Pelletier,
Military Judge.

On February 19, 2015, four former Canadian Prime Ministers wrote an op-ed in the Globe and Mail entitled “A Close Eye on Security Makes Canadians Safer”.
They were urging Canada to implement an accountability regime that would deal with the government national security activities.

Canada is the only country amongst the Five Eyes without any sort of oversight process regarding its national security agencies. However, Canada has two
external review bodies:

  • The Security Intelligence review Committee (SIRC) established in 1984 to review CSIS activities;
  • The Communication Security Establishment (CSE) Commissioner established in 1996 to review CSE activities.

Today, there are 17 Canadian agencies involved in national security information sharing, and only three have some sort of a review mechanism: CSIS,
the CSE and somewhat the RCMP. What about departments and agencies such as Public Safety, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Financial
Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre (FINTRAC), Foreign Affairs, etc? They have none.


In 2005, Bill C-81 was introduced by the Liberal government as an Act to establish a National Security Committee of Parliamentarians. It is the first
attempt after the “Maher Arar case” to create an oversight body. This legislation died when the Parliament was dissolved on October 29, 2005 and
general elections were called.

In 2013, private member’s bill C-551 was introduced by Liberal MP Wayne Easter. The proposed legislation was to establish a parliamentary
committee to oversee all national security activities. The bill stopped at the first reading in the House. Private member bills rarely become laws especially
under majority governments, which was the case at the time.

In 2014, private member’s bill C-622 was introduced by Liberal MP Joyce Murray with the intent to impose greater judicial and parliamentary scrutiny
on the CSE as well as creating a Parliamentary Committee on intelligence and security matters. The bill was voted down at the second reading.

And finally, in 2014 again, Bill S-220 was introduced by the Conservative Senator Hugh Segal and supported by his liberal colleagues Roméo Dallaire and
Grant Mitchell. The intent of the bill was to create an all-party committee of parliamentarians on national security and intelligence oversight. The bill stopped at the second reading in the Senate.

Colonel McAlea focused on the challenges facing Western states seeking to reform dysfunctional institutions in the developing world. Drawing
on the Canadian experience in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), he highlighted the difficulties associated with altering entrenched
patterns of behavior in a country with a legacy of instability and conflict. In countries such as the DRC, the security apparatus is often deeply
distrusted by the civilian population. To alter this dynamic, the partner countries must implement reform programs specifically tailored to the
situation on the ground, with the overarching aim of promoting the rule of law and increasing accountability among the security services. In
the context of the DRC, Canadian military personnel spearheaded efforts to: reform the payroll system for the Congolese military; provide skills
training for officers involved in the military justice system; and sought to integrate former rebel forces into the national army.  However, while
arguing that initiatives of this nature are a vital first step in resolving the more entrenched problems present in a fragile state, McAlea also pointed
out that capacity building is a lengthy process that requires a considerable amount of time to produce lasting results.

While McAlea highlighted the measures that can be taken to reform the security sector of a partner state once a relationship has been established....

Col. Dominic McAlea
Deputy Judge Advocate

Security sectors in failed or failing states reflect, and often contribute to, the weaknesses that lead to the failure
of their respective states. Establishing sustainable peace and Rule of Law in failed states requires, among other
things, real security sector reform - reform that includes the military justice sector. This session will consider
military justice in the context of security sector reform in failed or failing states using the Democratic Republic
of the Congo as the vehicle for discussion.

Col. Dominic McAlea has served as Deputy Judge Advocate Regional Services in Ottawa since September 2006.
Previously, he served as DND/CF Deputy Legal Advisor - Military. In 2004, he obtained a Master of Philosophy
in International Relations at the Center of International Studies, Cambridge University. He then assumed the duties
of Deputy Judge Advocate General / Military Justice and Administrative Law. As Director of Law/International,
Col McAlea was the Military Advisor in the Canadian Delegation at the UN Conference in Rome which drafted
the Statute of the International Criminal Court in June-July 1998.

Colonel McAlea recently returned from duty with MONUC Rule of Law Unit where he worked on military justice
reform as the Military Criminal Law Advisor to the UN mission to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Kinshasa.

"The problem studied in this thesis is the dilemma of the modern international, in its application to contemporary forms of warfare. Wars being
fought today occur predominantly on an intrastate level. Meanwhile, the bulk of relevant international law applies mainly to inter-state forms
of armed conflict. The discussion of this problem examines the emergence of the politically motivated mass army in the early nineteenth century.
Older customary restraint in war broke down in favour of international legal codification. The impact of total war in the first half of the twentieth
century broke down the effectiveness of the law of war. Reconstruction of the law created a greater distinction between non-combatant and combatant,
in order to protect non-combatants from the effects of war. The modern law of war remains predominantly concerned with international armed conflict.
This has created serious problems when attempting to apply laws of restraint to civil war. International organizations such as the Red Cross have
emphasized the humanitarian value of the  in hopes of finding a means of applying law to intrastate warfare. As intrastate war surpasses international
armed conflict in frequency, international law is again in danger of breaking down. As armed violence transcends the borders of the sovereign state,
the state may be impeding efforts to apply effective international law to armed conflict."

Chapter 10 The Accountability of Military Top Command

The Somalia Inquiry and Other Alerts
The Court Martial of LCdr Dean Marsaw
The Case of the Medical Files
Other Examples
The Pattern
Installing Accountability Reporting by Top Command

(This chapter deals with the issue of senior officers not taking responsibility for performance failures and not accounting for the quality of management
control in the Forces for fairness and effectiveness -- something that is their responsibility. The fact that the public knows so little about military top
command and has relied on blind faith (resulting from earlier citizen trust in wartime) means that the Chief of the Defence Staff should now be asked
to report regularly and publicly on the discharge of senior command responsibilities. The reporting standards would be set by a defence-related
parliamentary accountability committee.

___________"Horror stories persist on military accountability", Times - Colonist, Victoria, B.C., Jun 8, 2006, p.A13;

Description: To name a few instances: Tampering with Croatia-produced health warnings in soldiers' medical files rather than supporting the military
doctor who put them there; sending a bad-conduct junior officer to command a platoon in Somalia that killed an unarmed civilian; a general's illegal
large expense claims and a needless $250,000 farewell parade for an Atlantic Land Forces general; an aborted military mission to Zaire; intimidating
letters to civilians on base by the office of the judge advocate general; inadequate casualty information to families; sexual assault and harassment;
withholding of information on a 70-per-cent missile failure rate; and the fact that career progression of the judge advocate general, whose job is to
serve justice, was in the hands of his boss, the chief of the defence staff. These public assertions can then be audited for their fairness and completeness.
Accountability explanations made publicly have a self-regulating influence on the conduct of those with the responsibilities. Thus far the chief of defence
staff, Gen. Rick Hillier, has been silent and the new minister, Gordon O'Conner, in full command of the decision-making and its pace in the case of
[Christina Wheeler], has said only, "This issue will get resolved soon, hopefully." He did not state the resolution performance standard he sets for the
Crown. [David Pugliese] quotes ex-military ombudsman Andre Marin as saying that he couldn't believe how the Wheeler case has "dragged on for so
long." Based on the apparent general ploy of litigation lawyers working for the executive government, Marin probably meant the active voice, i.e., that it
was the Department of National Defence lawyers who had purposefully dragged it on.

Obituary of Howard McConnell

It was not an usual task for respected lawyer and author Howard McConnell to pore over documents and books at lightning speed.

"He had a prodigious memory and an ability to go through material faster than I think anyone I have ever met. Sometimes he would
read a book in a day and he would remember it," said Doug Schmeiser, professor emeritus of law at the University of Saskatchewan.
"Ten, 15 years later after he read something, he would still remember it and put his finger on it."

McConnell, a U of S professor emeritus of law, died Monday in Quebec from a heart attack at the age of 75. He is survived by his son.

McConnell was born in Aylmer, Que., in 1930. He earned a bachelors degree from Carleton University in 1955, a master's degree from
the University of Ottawa in 1962 and a PhD from the University of Toronto in 1969.

He earned his law degree at the University of New Brunswick in 1958, followed by his master's of law degree at the University of
Saskatchewan in 1970.

It was during McConnell's studies at the U of S that he came under the guidance of Schmeiser.

"He was just a wonderful person and, of course, a wonderful student," said Schmeiser, McConnell's former graduate supervisor.
 "He was incredibly competent."

Schmeiser had no doubt the bright young student would go on to make his mark in legal circles.

"There was no question about his ability."

McConnell was admitted to the New Brunswick bar in 1958.

According to the University of Saskatchewan, between 1959 and 1963, McConnell served as a flight lieutenant in the Judge
Advocate General's department with the Royal Canadian Airforce. The department is the legal adviser to the Governor General,
the Minister of National Defence, the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces in the area of military law.

In 1970 McConnell became a faculty member at the U of S college of law, later becoming a full professor in 1975.

A well-known constitutional law and international law expert, McConnell was both personable and affable, Schmeiser said.

"He was extremely interested in people, but next to people he was interested in books," Schmeiser said. "His life was devoted
to people first and then to literature." McConnell wrote more than 30 articles in legal journals and authored four books,
including a book co-authored with Schmeiser on the independence of provincial court judges. He retired from the U of S in
1998 and was living in Aylmer until his death. A funeral service will be held for McConnell in Quebec on Friday.

More importantly, the book fails to examine many substantive issues that would have been of great value to anyone interested
in the administrative legalities of the military. Generally, the book does justice to the Code of Service Discipline, but it does
not do justice to issues not related to the Code. For example, while dismissal may be one of the harshest penalties available to
a military judge, the book does not explore the release of a member from the Canadian Forces. Apart from the useful reproduction
of the tables of QR&O 15.01 on release, the book makes no mention of the many legal cases on administrative release that
some would equate with dismissal, since both sanctions mean the termination of service. A book on military law that does not
mention the trilogy of cases (St. Thomas [1993] FCA, Husband [1994] FCA and Robinson [1994] FCA) on the release of members,
due to breaches of universality of service (Section 33 of the National Defence Act) commits a substantive error.

7. The Office Has No Power over Veterans Affairs Matters

In Canada, the Department of National Defence is separate from the
Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Ministerial Directives stipulate
that the Ombudsman for National Defence and Canadian Forces shall
not deal with any complaint that falls within the jurisdiction of Veterans
Affairs Canada or the Veterans Review and Appeal Board. Yet, in practice,
it can be very difficult to clearly draw jurisdictional lines. For example,
if a current or a former member makes an application for a disability
pension (for an injury relating to military service) to Veterans Affairs,
and the current or former member is not satisfied with the decision and
feels they were treated unfairly, the member cannot complain to the
Ombudsman. However, if the application for a disability pension was
rejected by Veterans Affairs because certain medical information was
not provided or was deemed insufficient for the purposes of assessing
the claim, the medical information concerning the injury would be held
by the Canadian Forces. If the Canadian Forces did not forward proper
information to Veterans Affairs so that it could assess the claim properly,
and if the current or former member was having an issue getting this
medical information from or correcting certain information held by
the Canadian Forces, then the member could seek the assistance of the
Ombudsman to obtain that information.

McINTYRE, Mike, "Judge wasn't told about ex-soldier's dishonest past", Winnipeg Free Press, 25 May 2011, available at  (accessed 14 January 2018);

[Paul] Young, 54, was treated as a first-time offender with a spotless record based on submissions made by the Crown and Young, who acted as
his own lawyer. Based on those submissions, provincial court Judge Mary Kate Harvie gave Young a one-year conditional sentence.

However, Young has twice admitted to similar crimes of dishonesty that were not presented to the court. It appears no reference was made
to those indiscretions because they were dealt with by the military in the form of court martials and did not result in charges under the
Criminal Code of Canada.

MCINTYRE, William Rogers The Honourable William "Bill " Rogers McIntyre, O.C., Q.C. was born in Lachine,
Quebec on March 15, 1918 to Sidney and Pauline McIntyre and died peacefully in Victoria, BC on June 14, 2009.
....After growing up in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Bill attended the University of Saskatchewan where he earned
 a law degree in 1941. He joined the army and after training at Gordon Head in Victoria was sent overseas.
He landed in Sicily in 1943 with the 1st Canadian Division and served as an artillery officer in the campaigns in
Sicily and Italy. Bill was enormously proud of the accomplishments of the Canadians in Sicily and Italy and of the
men under his command. He often said that one of the most memorable and emotional events of his life was the
Christmas of 1943 during the battle of Ortona. Bill returned to England in 1944 and finished the war as an Air
Observation Pilot in North-West Europe. In 1944, Bill met and married Mimi Reeves and in 1945, Elizabeth was born.

HALIFAX, Dec. 21, 2016 /CNW/ - Systemic racial discrimination and harassment are the basis of a class action filed in the Federal Court
by Stewart McKelvey on behalf of three former members of the Canadian Forces. The Plaintiffs, who propose to represent all persons in
Canada who have been enrolled as members in the Canadian Forces and who are or who identify as racial minorities, visible minorities
or Aboriginal peoples, allege that the Canadian Forces, from top to bottom, has failed to protect racial minorities and Aboriginals from
racism within the ranks.

"When individuals enroll in the Canadian Forces, they expect to serve, advance and protect the ideals we value and enjoy as Canadians –
equality, fundamental justice and human dignity," said Scott Campbell, co-counsel representing the Plaintiffs. "But our clients allege that
the very institution we trust to bring these ideals to the world, has denied them, and those they represent, these basic human rights."


"This filing is a defining moment for Canadian Forces members who have experienced racial harassment and racial discrimination," said
Chris Madill, co-counsel representing the Plaintiffs. "We intend to shine a bright light on the alleged behaviours and institutional practices
described in the Statement of Claim."

McKINNON, Allan Bruce, M.P., Progressive Conservative, Introduction of Bill C-658, to amend the Canadian Forces Superannuation Act (retirement for misconduct), House of Commons, Hansard, 22 June 1982;

  Hon. Allan B. McKinnon (Victoria) moved

for leave to introduce Bill C-658, to amend the Canadian Forces Superannuation Act (retirement for misconduct).


Mr. McKinnon:

Madam Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to limit the extraordinary discretion of the Treasury Board under the
Canadian Forces Superannuation Act to reduce substantially pensions of Canadian Forces personnel who have

June 22, 1982

been discharged for misconduct, sometimes for less than major offences. It is to stop such miscarriages of justice
that 1 introduce a bill that I hope some day will receive approval from all sides of the House.

Though there was no clearly articulated response from the Society to the outbreak of war, its effects were felt from the very
beginning: John Lauchlin McKinnon (called in 1897), a serving Militia officer, had to resign as treasurer in order to answer
the call to arms. The closest thing in the Society to a professional soldier, McKinnon – according to his 1944 obituary – “had
a long and distinguished military life. He joined the Halifax Regiment of the Canadian Artillery back in the early [1890s]. He
served in Halifax at the start of the First World War and went overseas with the rank of major. He returned after the war with
the rank of a full colonel.” McKinnon was unusual in that he was among the few lawyer-soldiers called on to apply his
professional knowledge, on various occasions serving as Acting Judge Advocate General of the Canadian Forces.

McLEOD, Trevor P., biographical notes on retirement from the CF in 2016; going to the Department of Justice Canada;
Major Trevor P. McLeod, CD, BEng (Civ), LL.B., MBA 

Major Trevor McLeod joined the CF in 1983 as an ROTP cadet at the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston.  He graduated in
1987 with a degree in civil engineering.  After an aborted attempt to become a CF pilot, Trevor completed classification training as an
Air Weapons Controller in 1989

Trevor spent two tours of duty at the Canadian NORAD Sector in North Bay (1988 - 1992, and 1996 - 1999) where at different times
he maintained qualifications as a Weapons Director and Weapons Assignment Officer, Surveillance Controller, Standards Evaluator,
Operations Room Tactical Director, NORAD Airborne Battle Staff and Joint Operations Officer.  From 1992 to 1996 he was posted
to the NATO Airborne Early Warning Force in Geilenkirchen, Germany where he served as a Weapons Controller and Fighter Allocator
on squadron, as well as an Instructor in the Training Wing.

After being accepted into the Military Legal Training Program in 1999, Trevor attended law school at the University of Ottawa and
graduated in 2002.  After completing his Bar Admissions Course for the province of Ontario, Trevor officially joined the Office of the
JAG in 2003.  As a Legal Officer he has advised in the areas of administrative law concerning personnel issues and grievances, on
general military law, and on military justice issues.  He has deployed operationally twice as a legal officer.  In 2007 he had an opportunity
to advise on operational law issues during a deployment to the Democratic Republic of Congo where he filled the position of Deputy
Military Legal Advisor to the United Nations peacekeeping force in that country.  In 2012 Trevor deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan and
served as the Deputy Training Advisor to the Afghanistan National Army Legal School.

Trevor’s current and last posting as a legal officer is in Ottawa with the JAG Directorate of Law / Military Justice Policy where he
works diligently and tirelessly on the regulations and consequential amendments stemming from Bill C-15: Strengthening Military
Justice in the Defence of Canada Act.  He will be joining the ranks of the Department of Justice as a counsel with the International
Assistance Group.  Currently enjoying a return to paternity with a little one less than 2 years old, Trevor anticipates many years with
the Department of Justice.

Congratulations to Major Trevor McLeod for his 33 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces and numerous achievements as
an Air Weapons Controller and Legal Officer, and best of luck to him, his wife Vesna and two daughters Alyssa and Anna in their future endeavors.



Major Trevor P. McLeod, CD, BEng (Civ), LL.B., MBA 

Le major McLeod joint les FC en 1983 en tant que cadet dans le PFOR du Collège militaire royal du Canada, à Kingston.  En 1987, il
obtient un diplôme en génie civil.  En 1989, après un échec pour devenir un pilote des FC, Trevor complète la formation pour se qualifier
à titre de contrôleur des armes aériennes.

Trevor a passé deux périodes de service avec le secteur canadien du NORAD à North Bay (1988 - 1992 et 1996 - 1999) où, pendant
des périodes différentes, il maintient ses qualifications comme directeur des armes et officier à l’affectation des armes, contrôleur de la
surveillance et évaluateur des normes, directeur tactique du Centre des opérations, officier d’état-major de combat aéroporté du NORAD et
officier des opérations interarmées.  De 1992 à 1996, il est posté à la Force aéroportée d’alerte avancée de l’OTAN, à Geilenkirchen, en
Allemagne, où il sert à titre de contrôleur à bord des avions dotés du système aéroporté de détection lointaine pour un escadron ainsi que
d’instructeur de l’escadre responsable de la formation.

Après avoir été accepté au Programme militaire d’études en droit en 1999, Trevor a fréquenté la faculté de droit de l’Université d’Ottawa
et obtient son diplôme en 2002. Trevor complète ensuite son cours de formation professionnelle du barreau pour la province d’Ontario et
joint officiellement le cabinet du JAG en 2003. En sa qualité d’avocat militaire, il fournit des avis dans le domaine du droit administratif,
sur les questions de personnel et de griefs, du droit militaire en général, et de la justice militaire.  Il se déploie deux fois comme avocat militaire
en théâtre opérationnel.  En 2007 il avise sur les questions de droit opérationnel au cours d’un déploiement dans la République démocratique
du Congo où il occupe le poste de conseiller juridique militaire adjoint à la Force de maintien de la paix des Nations Unies dans ce pays. En
2012 Trevor se déploie à Kabul, Afghanistan ou il occupe le poste d’adjoint au conseiller militaire senior à l’École juridique de l’Armée nationale

La dernière et actuelle affection de Trevor en tant qu’avocat militaire est à Ottawa au sein de la Direction juridique / Justice militaire – politique
ou il a travaillé avec diligence et ardeur sur les amendements législatifs et règlementaires résultant du projet de loi C-15, la Loi visant à renforcer
la justice militaire pour la défense du Canada. Il va par la suite joindre les rangs du Service d’entraide internationale au Ministère de la Justice
en qualité d’avocat. Savourant présentement un retour aux joies de la paternité avec une petite ayant moins de 2 ans d’âge, Trevor anticipe plusieurs
années au sein de l’équipe du Ministère de la Justice.

Félicitations au major Trevor McLeod pour ses 33 années de services au sein des Forces armées canadiennes et ses nombreux accomplissements
en tant que contrôleur des armes aériennes et avocat militaire, et meilleurs vœux à lui, son épouse Vesna et ses deux filles Alyssa et Anna dans leurs projets futurs.

The Three Conditions for the Exercise of Military Jurisdiction Over Ordinary
Criminal Offences: A Reformulation of the Military Nexus Doctrine

What I am about to offer you is in effect a reformulation of the military nexus doctrine which developed rather haphazardly in Canadian
jurisprudence.  I suggest that the military justice system should only exercise its concurrent jurisdiction over an ordinary criminal offence
allegedly committed in Canada by a person subject to the Code of Service Discipline if three conditions are satisfied:

1. Is there a real and substantial connection between the alleged offence and the accused’s military service?

2. Taking into account all relevant considerations, is there a compelling military interest in prosecuting the alleged offence?

3. Have civilian justice authorities been fully informed of the circumstances of the alleged offence, waived their authority to prosecute the
offence, and consented to the prosecution in the military justice system?

TORONTO (CP) -- A 63-year- old Roman Catholic priest who molested two boys from his suburban parish
has been placed on probation for three years.

Rev. Angus NcRae, once a military haplain at CFB Edmonton, pleaded guilty Friday to sexual exploitation
and sexual interference for fondling the buttocks of the boys, aged 12 and 14, several times over the past year.

McRae often discussed erections and masturbation with the older boy, Crown attorney Mary Hall told provincial court.

When the older boy began avoiding him, McRae started to get friendly with the 12-year-old, and fondled his
buttocks "whenever he had the opportunity."

The boys' complaints to church officials in May prompted calls to the Catholic Children's Aid Society and Toronto
police, who charged McRae June 27.

McRae underwent psychological assessment and will receive treatment, the defence said. He will return to a small
farming community on the outskirts of Edmonton to live with his sister.

The church has barred him from parish work for life.

The judge also ruled McRae is not to associate with anyone under the age of 18 unless accompanied by an adult.

He received a four-year sentence in 1980 after being convicted of three sex charges involving a boy.

He had been tried at a military court martial in Edmonton on charges of buggery, indecent assault and gross

The Canadian Council on International Law held its third Annual Conference in Ottawa on October 18-19, 1974. The theme of the
Conference was International Terrorism and three sessions were devoted to it. The first session on October 18 focused on a paper
delivered by Professor Paul de Visscher of the University of Louvain, Belgium, entitled, “Le Terrorisme International: Ses Effets
sur l’Ordre Juridique International.” The paper was commented upon by Professor L. C. Green of the University of Alberta,
Professor Jordan J. Paust of the University of Houston, and Brigadier J. M. Simpson of the office of the Judge Advocate General.

The use of Private Military Companies (PMCs) has become an increasingly common feature of contemporary armed conflict. Because of their autonomous
contractual status, PMCs have presented governments with problems of accountability on several levels, including violations of international human rights
and humanitarian law (IHL) standards. This thesis argues that PMCs should be considered to be non-state actors (NSAs), subject to international law from
both an International Relations Theory and a Legal Theory perspective. This conclusion is linked to the issue of whether individual PMC employees can
be treated as legitimate combatants according to IHL. State practice has not led to a clear understanding of the definition of combatant, a problem which
has been compounded by a lack of government policy on the use of PMCs. Using Canadian experience as a case study, the thesis concludes that IHL
suggests two options for regularizing the status of PMCs which would both strengthen accountability and uphold the rule of law.

Ainsi, les Forces canadiennes conservent toute leur latitude pour juger non seulement les manquements disciplinaires de leurs membres
(comme l’insubordination ou l’absence sans permission), mais aussi leurs crimes, sans devoir consulter les autorités civiles. Et ce,
quelles que soient les circonstances. Que le soldat ait commis son infraction alors qu’il était en devoir ou non, que l’incident se soit
produit sur une base militaire ou en dehors, que la victime soit militaire ou civile, peu importe, tranche la Cour suprême: le procès
peut se dérouler dans une cour martiale, dans ce régime opaque où tous les acteurs, du juge au sténographe en passant par les
procureurs et les jurés, sont militaires.

Tout le flou qui pouvait encore planer sur ce point vient de s’envoler. «On a perdu sur toute la ligne», admet le Capitaine de corvette
Mark Létourneau, l’un des avocats militaires qui ont plaidé cette cause devant la Cour suprême. Joint au téléphone à son bureau de
Gatineau, quelques heures après le dévoilement du jugement, il était sonné par l’ampleur de la défaite. «Les assises constitutionnelles
 du système de justice militaire sont pas mal plus fortes aujourd’hui qu’hier.»

une vingtaine d’années, dans les années 1990 et 2000. « Ce système de justice n’en est pas un, dit-il. La cour martiale est excellente pour rendre une justice
expéditive dans des cas d’infractions à caractère purement militaire. Mais dans des causes d’agressions sexuelles, elle n’a pas les mêmes outils que les tribunaux
civils pour apprécier la gravité de la situation et rendre des ordonnances appropriées. Pourquoi donner cette juridiction à la cour martiale? Les agressions sexuelles
sont des crimes contre la personne qui dépassent toujours l’intérêt des Forces canadiennes à maintenir la discipline interne. »

Law of War

Was NATO’s military intervention in Libya legal? What about Afghanistan? Or the imprisonment of America’s detainees
in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba? What is the legal status of killing by drones? What happens to people who commit war crimes?
What are the remedies for an illegal war? This seminar examines the international law governing war, including both
questions of when war is legal (so-called ‘jus ad bellum’) and how even legal wars must be conducted (so-called ‘jus in bello’
or the laws and customs of war) and the relationship between the two types of law. It also examines the various judicial institutions
that have jurisdiction over these issues, from the World Court, to the ad hoc tribunals (Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone), to
national courts exercising ‘universal jurisdiction’ (Belgium, Canada), to the new International Criminal Court.

Case studies on the armed conflicts over Kosovo, in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, and between Israel and the Palestinians, provide
the settings for concrete legal analysis and also for critical evaluation of the role of law in war.

Pity the military bureaucrat, buried in acronyms. Even the most intrepid clerk may remember his ROE and STD but forget to check
his TSS/TEA with a LEGAD from the OJAG. It can happen to anyone.
For that, you'll need a LEGAD from the OJAG. You guessed it: a legal adviser from the Office of the Judge Advocate General.

'The doubt rule'

One of the few paragraphs not riddled with acronyms puts the pilots on notice: if you're not sure whether it's a civilian target or a military one, don't drop the bomb.

A section of the FRAG O guidelines describes the 'doubt rule,' instructing pilots not to bomb when unsure whether it's a civilian target or a military one. (Department of National Defence)


But the document wants to know: Is this bombing militarily necessary? Is the damage proportional to the benefits? Has the target been approved by the coalition? By the
intelligence officer? By the legal adviser? By the Targeting Engagement Authority? 

Defence Department guidelines show questions to be answered and approvals obtained for every target during Operation Impact. Canada's CF-18 pilots flew 1,378
sorties over Iraq and Syria between Oct. 30, 2014, and Feb. 15, 2016. (Department of National Defence)

Your answer had better be, yes. It's enough to make you wonder if a LEGAD clings to every falling bomb, taking notes for the mandatory post-bombing reports.

Military Judges Inquiry Committee, decision about the complaint against Chief Military Judge Mario Dutil, 27 April 2016; available at http://www.cmac-cacm.ca/bulletins/documents/April_27_2016.docx (accessed 27 September 2016);

Ottawa, 27 April 2016

The Military Judges Inquiry Committee, established in accordance with section 165.31 of the National Defence Act, reviewed a complaint against
the Chief Military Judge Mario Dutil. The complaint was made by Colonel Bruce J Wakeham.


The complaint concerned allegations of infringement to the Defence Administrative Order and Directives (DAOD) 5019-1, Personal Relationships
and Fraternization. After considering all the issues in this case, the complaint was dismissed on the basis that it did not raise any issue of
judicial conduct as referred to in subsection 165.32(7) of the National Defence Act and therefore did not warrant consideration by the Military
Judges Inquiry Committee.


Military Judges Selection Process, Ottawa, Backgrounder / January 24, 2001 / Project number: BG-01.003; available at http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/news/article.page?doc=military-judges-selection-process/hnmx19ox, accessed on 12 February 2015; also published in French /aussi publié en français à http://www.forces.gc.ca/fr/nouvelles/article.page?doc=processus-de-selection-des-juges-militiares/hnmx19ox, visité le 12 février 2015;



Subsection 165.21(1) of the National Defence Act provides that the Governor in Council may appoint officers who are barristers or advocates of at least ten years standing
at the bar of a province to be military judges. To ensure that competent and deserving officers are recommended for military judicial appointments the Minister, in consultation
with the Office of the Commissioner of Federal Judicial Affairs and the Minister of Justice, developed and implemented an evaluation and selection process that is consistent
with the Federal Judicial Appointment process. The Office of the Commissioner of Federal Judicial Affairs administers and supports the process.

Military Judges Selection Committee

The military judges selection process provides for the assessment of candidates by an advisory committee, known as the Military Judges Selection Committee (MJSC).
The MJSC, appointed by the Minister of National Defence is representative of the bench, the civilian bar and the military community. It is composed of:

  • a lawyer or judge nominated by the Judge Advocate General (JAG);
  • a civilian lawyer nominated by the Canadian Bar Association;
  • a civilian judge nominated by the Chief Military Judge;
  • an officer of the Canadian Forces, holding the rank of Major-General or higher, nominated by the Chief of the Defence Staff; and;
  • a non-commissioned member of the rank of Chief Warrant Officer or equivalent nominated by the Chief of the Defence Staff.

Candidate Assessments
Those interested in being considered for a military judicial appointment place their names before the MJSC. The MJSC assesses all candidates based upon a list
of identified criteria relating to:

  • professional competence and experience;
  • personal characteristics such as honesty and integrity;
  • social awareness; and
  • potential impediments to appointment such as an inability to meet Canadian Forces medical and physical fitness requirements.

    All Committee proceedings and consultations take place on a confidential basis.

    Upon the completion of a candidate's assessment, the MJSC is asked to place the candidate into one of three possible assessment categories:

  • recommended;
  • highly recommended; or
  • unable to recommend.


    Once the MJSC has completed its assessment of a candidate, the assessment is forwarded to the Minister of National Defence. The Minister of National Defence is ultimately responsible for recommending candidates to the Governor in Council.


    The Government of Canada and the Minister of National Defence are committed to ensuring the appointment of qualified and deserving candidates to the military judiciary. The evaluation and selection process implemented by the Minister ensures this occurs and contributes to the strengthening of the Canadian Forces as a national institution.

    MILITARY POLICE COMPLAINTS COMMISSION OF CANADA, Final Report Following a Public Interest Hearing Pursuant to Subsection 250.38 of the National Defence Act With Respoect to a Complaint Concerning the Conduct of Sergeant David Mitchell et al., [Fynes Public Interest Hearing] - MPCC 2011-004, Ottawa, 10 March 2015, Chairperson; Glenn M. Stannard, available at http://www.mpcc-cppm.gc.ca/alt_format/01/1400/3700/pih-aip-2011-004-fnl-rpt-eng.pdf  and http://publications.gc.ca/collections/collection_2015/cppm-mpcc/DP5-1-2015-eng.pdf (accessed 16 December 2017);
    155. In their complaint before this Commission, the Fynes specifically refer to the role
    of CF legal advisors and allege they participated in influencing the CFNIS’ decisions, in
    particular about their contacts with the complainants particular about their contacts with the complainants.

    156. The basic issue raised by this allegation is whether consultation by the CFNIS of
    egal advisors who are members of the CF, and who answer to a CoC separate
    from the Military Police’s, raises issues about independence.

    157. As Prof Roach explained, if the advice is obtained from military or civilian
    prosecutors, no concerns are raised since these actors have duties to uphold the rule of
    law similar to the police’s duties.278  If advice was sought from CF legal advisors who are
    not prosecutors or from DOJ counsel representing the interests of the Government,
    independence issues could arise, depending on the content of the advice.279

    158. There is very little evidence before this Commission about specific legal advice
    received by the CFNIS in connection with the issues raised in the Fynes’ complaint.280
    Because of solicitor-client privilege, it cannot be known exactly what advice was
    obtained and from whom.281  However, the evidence has shown the general practice
    followed by the CFNIS is to obtain legal advice from military prosecutors or from its
    embedded legal advisor, who is also a member of the JAG’s Director of Military
    Prosecutions.282  There is no indication any derogation from this practice took place in
    this case. Based on the evidence available, it does not appear any independence concerns
    arise as a result of any legal advice sought or obtained by the CFNIS.

    On June 2, 2016, the annual Canadian Bar Association’s Military Law Conference was held in Ottawa.


    Phillip went on to state that once a complaint is made, serving soldiers can be laid and a court martial held, but
    afterwards they cannot sue their employer. Essentially, they are denied the civil remedy most civilians have available
    to them to seek damages and receive justice. In addition, Phillip addressed the fact that lawyers who represent the
    Department of National Defence in civil suits do not reflect the internal policies of the Chain of Command when it
    comes to treating victims with respect. He brought up the example of one case in which lawyers for the defence
    described a sexual assault as a simple breast groping, thereby showing a lack of understanding of the nature of what
    a sexual assault constitutes and the power dynamics involved.

    applicable to the cultural dynamic of interpersonal relationships between the citizens of a country suffering from
    conflict and the military forces sent to manage the conflict. The thrust of this research will focus on CF experiences
    in the Balkans. The purpose is to examine the question of whether the current emphasis on cultural awareness training
    is adequate for the demands placed on a military commander in a Peace Support Operation. Hypothesis. My hypothesis
    is that a Commander of a Peace Support Operation is better able to achieve his mission with an increased cultural
    awareness of the society he is operating in. Currently, the CF spends, in relative terms, little time educating its officers
    about the culture they are deploying to. The result is a brief and altogether too basic familiarization with some cultural
    habits discovered upon deployment overseas, without a deeper understanding of how the society operates. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)

     In January 2013 he [Pascal Guilbault] asked his supervisor [Lieutenant-Colonel Isabelle Veilleux] if he could take his two 15-minute
     breaks at the end of the day, allowing him to leave half an hour earlier to help his wife.
    Guilbault was “deeply hurt” by Veilleux’s suggestion that he review his family scheduling, according to the ruling, “because, he stated, they came
    from a woman with no children, suggesting that she could not understand the difficulty of managing a home with four children and a spouse with
    fragile health.”

Thesis (LL.M)--University of Alberta, 2003; advisor: G. Gall;

    Changes in global security issues have resulted in increasing amounts of intrastate conflict. Alleviating the human suffering which these
    conflicts bring requires quick reaction which the United Nations preventive process has not been able to meet. A review of the record of
    various UN peacekeeping and regional rapid reaction forces indicates that not only have these alternatives not relieved human suffering,
    but that these forces have negatively contributed to the conflict they are meant to resolve. This thesis argues that there are no stated legal
    impediments to the introduction of Private Military Companies into the continuum of conflict. The thesis also looks at a number of issues
    related to the UN Secretary-General and his ability to interpret his role and concludes that the Secretary-General of the UN has sufficient
    authority to outsource the immediate reaction to conflict and hire Private Military Companies.

    in Val d'Or. He spent several years overseas and became deputy judge advocate general of the Canadian army
    occupation force in Germany; returned to Canada with the rank of major and resumed legal practice in
    Montreal. Mr. Miquelon served as the Quebec representative on the dominion command of the Royal Canadian
    Legion from 1955 to 1960, and in the latter year was elected vice-chairman of the Legion's dominion command.
    He is recognized as a distinguished member of the bar, and the government is pleased that a man of his capacity
    is available to accept this appointment.

    Description: Our Canadian Military also has its own legal system. Just like television, the Canadian Forces has an
    office of the Judge Advocate General. The JAG website (http://www.forces.gc.ca/jag/ welcome_e.html) reports on the
    duties of this office: The key duties and functions of the office of the JAG are defined by Canadian law. A key
    responsibility of the JAG, as defined by Canadian law, is the supervision of the offices of the prosecution and defence.
    Canadian military law, including the military system of justice, is a component of Canadian law and subject to the
    Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Another important component to military legal structure is the Office of
    the Chief Military Judge. This office also has its own website at http://www.forces.gc.ca/cmj/intro_e.asp The website
    describes the role of the military judge as follows: *provide military judges to preside at courts martial and perform
    other judicial duties under the National Defence Act * administer the convening of courts martial, the appointment
    of members of General and Disciplinary Courts Martial, and the provision of court reporting services and transcription
    of the proceedings of courts martial and other judicial hearings * appoint military judges as boards of inquiry (with
    the concurrence of the Chief Military Judge) A recent example of a Board of Inquiry appointed by the Office of the
    Chief Military Judge is Tarnak Farm 2002. This board was gathered to investigate the injury and death of Canadian
    Forces personnel during live fire training at or near Kandahar, Afghanistan on 17/18 of April, 2002. The Canadian
    answer is Quicklaw! Subscribers to Quicklaw can access decisions reported in the Court Martial Appeal Reports
    from 1978 to 1994, plus decisions reported by Quicklaw since 1975. Summaries of recent Court Martial Appeals
    and Court Martial decisions can be accessed through the JAG website above.

    ...the six month National Security Studies Programme and the three month Advanced Military Studies Programme (AMSP) morphed
    into a single yearlong National Security Programme (NSP). It has continued with the development of the Advanced Joint Warfighting
    Studies (AJWS) stream to the Joint Command and Staff Programme (JCSP).  (at p. 84)

    The NSP emerged out of a decision to amalgamate the two senior-most professional military education (PME) programmes in the CAF into
    a single, ten-month long programme. As part of that decision, the curriculum of the former three month long AMSP had to be both up-dated
    and transformed into a thirteen-class course capable of being accredited as a graduate level course for a Masters of Public Affairs degree offered
    by Royal Military College.4 ...
    4 The role of graduate level learning in senior PME [professional military education] programmes was mandated by the Minister of National
    Defence, the honorable Douglas Young in response to the Blue Ribbon Committee reports issued after the Somalia debacle. On the basis of
    this report, an educational revolution was launched at CFC, which is the subject of a related but different story. Since that report, the JCSP
    as well as the NSP have been required by Armed Forces Council to be taught at the graduate level. See:CANFORGEN106/08 CMP 042/08 061754Z JUN 08;

    In Canada, the post was created in 1911 by Minister of Defence Frederick (later Sir Frederick) Borden, who was frustrated at not having
    Canadian military legal expertise. The first JAG, Colonel Smith, was a militia army officer and lawyer who had risen through the ranks
    over the course of a 49-year career, seeing action in several conflicts. ...

    Today, there are approximately 151 Regular Force and 55 Reserve Force members advising the Chain of Command and the Minister of
    National Defence on increasingly complex matters pertaining to military law, both at home and abroad. Legal issues range from providing
    advice on disciplinary measures for infractions of the Code of Service Discipline, to providing operational legal advice to Commanding
    Officers in the field and at sea. In fact, legal officers have found themselves increasingly deployed, providing advice on issues such as targeting,
    rules of engagement, and Law of the Sea.


    Besides operational advice, the Branch tends to matters of administrative law and military justice. Administrative law focuses on issues such
    as compensation and benefits for members, personnel matters, and pensions and service estates, while military justice matters relate to the unique
    enforcement of discipline.

    Mr. Justice P.J. Montague

    MONTAGUE, Percival (Price)  John, 1915-1966, JAG officer; info from the Archives of Manitoba,
    Percival (Price) John Montague was born in Dunville, Ontario on 10 November 1882, son of Dr. W. H. Montague and Angelina Furry. He was educated
    at Upper Canada College, the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall. He was called to the Ontario and Manitoba Bars in 1907. He joined the firm of Pitblado,
     Hoskin, Montague and Drummond Hay in 1913 and took a leave to serve in the First World War.

    Price Montague married Anne Isabel Fletcher (1885-1940), also from Ontario, and the couple had two daughters together, Eleanor (1908-2001) and Anne
    (known as Nancy) (1911-2001). Eleanor later married Karl Wintemute (1903-1989) and Nancy married Ernest Moncrieff (1908-2000).

    Price Montague enlisted for service in the First World War on 1 February 1915. He attained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel and by 1917 was Assistant Adjutant (A. A.)
    and Quartermaster General (Q. M. G.) in the 2nd Canadian Division.

    After the war, Montague returned to Winnipeg and his legal career although he also continued his military involvement. He was the Commanding Officer of the Fort
    Garry Horse from 1920 to 1923 and of the 6th Mounted Brigade from 1928 to 1936. He was made King's Counsel in 1928 and then was appointed a Court of King's
    Bench judge in 1932. In the 1930s Montague was also the Chief Commissioner of the Manitoba Board of Review for the Farmers' Creditors Arrangement Act.

    At the outbreak of the Second World War Montague was posted to Canadian Military Headquarters in London where he served as Quartermaster General and then
    as Judge Advocate-General. He was later Chief of Staff and attained the rank of Lieutenant-General. Montague was the highest ranking Manitoba serviceman in
    the Second World War.

    In 1945 Montague returned to Winnipeg and to the Manitoba Bench. In 1951 he was appointed to the Court of Appeal. He retired in 1959.

    Price Montague died at the Deer Lodge Military Hospital on 11 June 1966 and was buried with full military honours.

    MONTFORTON, Greg, "Military law can be faster than regular civilian system", The Windsor Star, 2 July 1992, at p. E4;

    WHY A SEPARATE system of offences - one for the military and one for all other Canadians? Mostly because the military wanted
    a quicker and more efficient system for punishing offences than the regular criminal system. Also, many service offences have a
    more severe punishment than regular criminal offences. Given the requirement for strict discipline in the military, offences are
    not viewed with much compassion.

    A separate system is also practical because many offences - for example, desertion - are unique to the military. Many other
    offences such as theft or damage to property are similar to regular criminal offences.


    ONE INTERESTING aspect is the inter-relationship between the military law and regular criminal law. The regular law
    continues to apply to members of the military. But they will not be tried in two places for the same offence. This is called
    double jeopardy in law. Which law ought to be used depends simply on the connection the offence has with the military.
    Is it a military matter? Or has the soldier done something - on leave, for instance - that would better be tried in a regular court?

    This thesis focuses on the Merchant Navy’s redress campaign and appraises
    shifting government attitudes towards the mariners in veterans’ legislation. It traces the
    wartime experience of the mariners and discusses their postwar treatment. By examining
    the factors that contributed to the mariners’ initial exclusion as veterans, this study sheds
    light on the complex process whereby the state evaluates and then reassesses what is
    owed to those who serve. It demonstrates that concepts of “veteranhood” are fluid, and,
    that in the case of the Merchant Navy, once neglected wartime narratives can be
    reincorporated into the nation’s military past. In the case of the Merchant Navy, renewed
    public engagement with Canada’s social memory of its involvement in two world wars
    helped the merchant seamen find an audience willing to validate their claims. This study
    of Merchant Navy redress serves as an exploration into the nature of the state-veteran

    On October 14th, 1914, when men of the First Contingent of the Canadian Expeditionary Force reached
    Plymouth on the first stage of their journey to the Western Front, their status was clear. In the meaning
    of Britain’s Army Act, the Canadians were “Imperial”. They were soldiers of the British Army, recruited
    from the Empire. In the mood of the moment, any other status would have seemed inconceivable. 1 If there
    was any doubt of the full integration of the Canadians in the British Army, it was laid to rest by Canada’s
    Minister of Militia, Colonel Sam Hughes: “we have nothing whatever to say as to the destination of the
    troops once they cross the water,” Hughes told the Canadian House of Commons, “nor have we been
    informed as to what their destination may be.” 2 In London, Canada’s acting High Commissioner, George
    Perley, assumed, “that as soon as the Canadian troops arrive here they will be entirely under the authority
    of the War Office and become part of the Imperial army in every sense of the word.” 3 In 1914 no one
    presumed otherwise.

    to help people struggling with mental health and addictions issues. Context is taken into account. In the case of military personnel, the

    Two States, namely the United States and Canada, have seen fit, in recent years, to formulate rules, for security purposes,
    in respect of identification and control of aircraft approaching their coasts, or within certain fixed zones contiguous to the
    coast, whereby, in effect, they assert a jurisdiction for that limited purpose only, which departs drastically from the popular
    conception in Maritime Law of the three-mile limit, six-mile limit, or twelve-mile limit, which has heretofore been generally
    accepted, among laymen particularly, and by governments, and indeed, by some international lawyers, as the limit to which
    a State may exercise jurisdiction over the high seas contiguous to its coasts, for various purposes. [...]

    Following Giorgio Agamben’s theory that the decision of the “state of exception” is the fundamental act of sovereignty, this article traces
    the origin of Canadian sovereignty through a review of the suspension of habeas corpus in Lower Canada to its first autonomous declaration
    on Canadian soil. This article fills an important gap in the historiography of the Special Council and demonstrates the significance of Governor
    Colborne’s declaration of martial law in response to the 1837-38 rebellions in Lower Canada. By underlining this genesis-moment of Canadian
    sovereignty, I offer a critical alternative to traditional narratives of Canadian sovereignty.

    Suivant la théorie de Giorgio Agamben que la décision de l’état d’exception est l’acte fondamental de la souveraineté, cet article identifie
    l’origine de la souveraineté canadienne par une revue de la suspension de l’habeas corpus au Bas-Canada à sa première déclaration
    autonome en sol canadien. Cet article rempli un vide important dans l’historiographie du Conseil spécial et démontre l’importance de la
    déclaration de la loi martiale par le Gouverneur Colborne en réponse aux rébellions de 1837-1838 au Bas-Canada. En soulignant ce
    moment-genèse de la souveraineté canadienne, j’offre une critique alternative au discours traditionnel de la souveraineté au Canada.

    ___________"United Nations Peacekeeping in Lebanon and Somalia, and the Use of Force", (2003) 8(1) Journal of Conflict and Security Law 71-99;

    The article analyzes the use of force in traditional peacekeeping operations, and second‐generation peace enforcement operations.
    It examines two operations in particular, UNIFIL in south Lebanon, and the UN operations in Somalia. Although both missions had
    different purposes, it is surprising how the interpretation of the rules of engagement (ROE) and the right to resort to force in self‐defence
    were dependent on subjective variables. In the case of Somalia, once the operation was approved under chapter VII, this had a significant
    impact on how commanders viewed their role. In the case of UNIFIL, early confrontation with armed groups set a precedent that to a large
    extent determined the nature and extent of force used by the peacekeeping force thereafter. However, in the case of both operations, the
    actual wording of the relevant Security Council resolutions was remarkably vague. This in turn influenced the application of the ROE,
    which by their very nature lent themselves to either restrictive or expansive interpretations. The publication of the Brahimi Report, and
    the report on events that led to the fall of Srebrenica, have questioned the traditional response of UN forces to the use of force and advocated
    the formulation of a more robust doctrine. The experience of UN forces in Somalia and Lebanon shows that the non‐use of force except
    in self‐defence principle has proved controversial and difficult to apply in practice, not least because of its correlation to the other
    characteristics, especially the need to maintain impartiality.

    Any system or tribunal that exercises judicial power in a democratic society must comply with certain minimum standards for the administration
    of justice. In international human rights law, these standards are embedded in the right to a fair trial which undoubtedly is the most important
    prerequisite for ensuring justice in the adjudication of cases. This thesis examines the extent to which Uganda's military justice system complies
    with the right to a fair trial. It questions the competence, independence and impartiality of Uganda's military tribunals and generally casts strong
    doubt on the country's current military justice system to administer fair justice according to the minimum international human rights standards.
    It is argued that despite attempts at reform, Uganda's military justice system is still largely stuck in its historical origins and falls far too short of
    complying with the country's international human rights obligations concerning the right to a fair trial.

    The thesis points out areas that require reform and provides recommendations which can help to make Uganda's military justice system compliant
    with the country's international human rights obligations concerning the right to a fair trial, in particular the right to a fair and public hearing by a
    competent, independent and impartial tribunal. Ensuring that the administration of military justice complies with the right to a fair trial is not only
    an international obligation which Uganda is obliged to fulfill, but could also help it to achieve effective and sustained military discipline - which is
    the main reason advanced for the existence of military justice as a separate system of administration of justice.

    Future Conflict and the Law

    The CAF will always conduct operations under the principle of the rule of law. This is the
    lynchpin to establishing and maintaining legitimacy for military operations. For the CAF,
    the rule of law includes both domestic legislation and such laws as prescribed under any
    international agreements to which Canada is a party, including internationally agreed
    upon LOAC. In addition, the behaviour of Western forces is often influenced by similar
    moral and ethical codes and beliefs. However, as noted in Chapter One, the application
    of international law is often a function of perceptions of a state’s power. Thus, as has
    been true for much of the past century or so, there can be no assurance that states will
    abide by the LOAC or interpret those laws in a manner similar to that of Western
    states. Moreover, given the frequency with which non-state or sub-state actors are
    encountered as adversaries and given the array of international laws, the interpretation
    of those laws, and possible enforcement options, legal considerations and dilemmas
    will increasingly affect the conduct of military operations in the future.117

    The legal constraints under which states operate may be exploited by state, non-
    state and sub-state adversaries to their advantage militarily, politically, and for
    propagandistic purposes.118 All bodies of law evolve over time. Societal norms,
    technological change, and other factors all help to spur legal thinking meant to
    assure the safety and security of the public. Warfare is no different. For example,
    vigorous legal and public debates over such security and defence issues as the rights
    of captured non-state belligerents, the parameters of what might constitute an
    act of war in the cyber domain, and consideration of what constitutes a proper
    balance between security, freedom, and the requirement for adequate anti-terrorism
    measures are recent examples of the normal process by which Western legal thought
    evolves. The changing characteristics of warfare and the normal process by which
    legal thought evolves will, as in the past, continue to affect how the CAF and its
    allies prosecute campaigns. It should be expected that subtle and more fundamental
    changes to the broad body of law that guides military activities will occur as
    Canada’s legal system and legislators strive to balance the protection of Canadians
    and Canada from aggressors, with the requirement to protect Canadian rights and
    values, universal human rights and uphold the legitimacy of international law.119

    Similarly, new and evolving military capabilities will require ongoing analysis to
    ensure that they are in compliance with applicable Canadian and international law
    and may suggest the need for the development of new laws. The increased use of
    armed UAVs is one such capability currently generating much legal debate.120 As
    noted in Chapter 3, a further challenge to existing law is the trend towards greater
    autonomy in the unmanned armed systems. The major moral, ethical, and legal
    issues are related to whether a ‘human-in-the-loop’ is a necessary permanent check
    and balance on autonomous systems to ensure that such systems “discriminate
    sufficiently between combatants and non-combatants.”121

    Thus, dealing with the legal issues sure to be encountered on future operations
    will require concerted efforts on the part of the CAF to ensure the Office of the
    Judge Advocate General is positioned to proactively deliver and, where required,
    coordinate whole of government advice on emerging military and security legal
    issues.122  Furthermore, there is no guarantee that any future adversary will abide
    by, or interpret international laws regarding conflict in a similar manner to how the
    CAF or any of Canada’s traditional allies might. Therefore, while the CAF will rightly
    always operate with full consideration of the moral, ethical, and legal implications of
    its activities such constraints may not be shared by Canada’s adversaries.


    67 The provision of legal advice to political and military leadership at the
    strategic and operational levels in real-time will be required to facilitate effective
    military operations in the future. Achieving this requires the Judge Advocate
    General to maintain a high level of expertise in all areas of military law to ensure
    the delivery of responsive force-enabling legal advice and to influence the shaping'
    of domestic and international legal frameworks to facilitate CAF, Departmental
    and Governmental mission success.

    68 The military institution will need to remain aware of the legal implications
    of new technologies as they are considered for integration into the CAF capability

    69 Continued education, professional development, and training in the LoAC
    by CAF personnel and deploying civilian representatives of the GoC are necessary
    for the conduct of effective operations.

    117 See for example The Commission for the Examination of the Events of the 2006 Campaign in Lebanon
    (The Winograd Commission), The Second Lebanon War, Final Report, Vol. 1. January 2008. See in particular
    pp. 468-483. The phenomenon of countries operating under so-called ‘universal jurisdiction’ regarding alleged
    war crimes is one such example.

    118 Winograd Commission, p. 478-480.

    119  The conclusions of the Winograd commission in this regard are as applicable to Canada as they
    are to Israel. Indeed, it can be argued that this is one of the fundamental considerations of legal thought
    in democratic states. See Winograd Commission, p. 480. The type of coordinated, proactive policy and
    legislative efforts necessary in this regard would be very similar to those necessary to counter terrorist
    activities as described in the Radicalization Key Topic above.

    OTTAWA – Captain (Navy) Holly MacDougall, the Canadian Forces Director of Military Prosecutions (DMP), has withdrawn the charge
    of desertion, an offence under section 88 of the National Defence Act, against former Sergeant Montgomery Paisley.  Sgt. Paisley was the
    member of Joint Task Force 2 (JTF 2) who left his unit in July of 2003 and was absent until he turned himself in at the Canadian embassy
    in Bangkok, Thailand, in April of 2005.  

    The DMP decision to withdraw the charge was based on a consideration of the public interest, which balanced the nature of the offence and
    the public interest in prosecuting the charge against recently-provided evidence that the accused suffered at the time of the offence (and
    continues to suffer) from a major depressive disorder.   Had the matter proceeded to court martial, the central issue would have been the
    mental health of the accused and his level of criminal responsibility. 

    After a review of materials provided by Sgt. Paisley’s defence counsel, including psychological test results and opinions, and having further
    consulted with other mental health professionals in respect of those materials, the DMP decided that the public interest does not require
    prosecution of this matter and that Sgt Paisley’s conduct may adequately be addressed through administrative processes and within the
    medical domain.
    The CF National Investigation Service charged Sgt. Paisley with the National Defence Act offences of desertion, absence without leave
    and stealing on April 15, 2005, after escorting him back to Canada from Thailand.  Following review by a military prosecutor, DMP
    determined that he should be tried by a court martial on a single count of desertion.

    Major-General Blaise Cathcart, Judge Advocate General of the Canadian Armed Forces, on June 5th, 2015, was granted the Canadian
    Forces Legal Branch’s first audience with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who serves as their Colonel-in-Chief. Major-General Cathcart,
    along with Sir Graham Day, Colonel Commandant of the Canadian Forces Legal Branch, presented Her Majesty with a Legal Branch
    membership coin and a plaque of the Legal Branch Crest, while also updating her on the affairs of the Branch. 

    Legal Branch coins are presented to Legal Officers upon their qualification, and are consecutively numbered to indicate the order of entry
    into the Branch. The coin presented to Her Majesty carried the inscription “Regina,” to indicate her status within the Legal Branch. The coin
    contained the Branch motto, “Fiat Justitia”, often translated as “let justice prevail” or “let right be done”. This motto is also a reference to a
    ruling made by King Edward VII in 1910, and serves as a link between the Canadian Forces Legal Branch and the Royal Family.

    Ottawa, October 12, 2018 — The National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (NSICOP) today announces two
    substantive reviews of government national security and intelligence activities. Its findings will be published in NSICOP’s first annual

    The Committee is examining how the Government of Canada establishes national intelligence priorities. The priorities provide direction
    to the intelligence organizations in the collection and analysis of intelligence. This process is the primary mechanism for the Prime Minister,
    Cabinet and senior officials to ensure the proper exercise of control, oversight and accountability for Canada’s intelligence activities.

    NSICOP is also conducting a separate review of the intelligence activities of the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed
    Forces. This review focuses on the structure and scope of defence intelligence activities, the legal authorities under which they are conducted,
    and the internal oversight and governance mechanisms in place for their control and accountability. Consistent with its mandate, NSICOP is
    conducting the first independent, external review of defence intelligence activities.

    "Intelligence activities are critical for the effectiveness of government activities. They also have the potential to affect the rights and privacy
    of Canadians,” said the Chair, the Honourable David McGuinty. “NSICOP’s review of these two important programs will help ensure that
    our security and intelligence agencies continue to keep Canadians safe in a way that also safeguards our values, rights, and freedoms."

    Relying on expert witness briefings and classified documentation, the Committee will submit its findings and recommendations to the Prime
    Minister by the end of this calendar year as part of the Committee’s annual report. A declassified version of the report will be tabled in

    "Officials met all requests for information within the deadlines set, and readily complied with any follow-on requests. We are deeply grateful
    for their cooperation and for the insights they provided during the Committee's hearings," McGuinty said.

    5. Further, the following actions will now be taken:
    A. Stripping Mr. Williams of his medals
    B. Termination and recovery of his pay from the date of arrest
    C. Denial of severance pay; and
    D. His prompt release from the CF under “service misconduct” – which is the most serious release item possible.

    The government’s top military lawyer, whose advice Defence Minister Jason Kenney cited to argue unilateral Canadian air strikes against Islamic
    State militants in Syria would be legal, has served a three-year stint as legal adviser for Canada’s top-secret JTF2 commando unit and provided the
    legal advice for 13 counter-terrorism and special operations missions, his Canadian Armed Forces biography states.
    But despite Mr. Cathcart’s top-echelon role in military strategy and operations—as well as his position as the chief legal adviser on military law for
    Governor General David Johnston, Mr. Kenney (Calgary Southeast, Alta.) and the Department of National Defence—experts on international law
    question the government’s apparent decision to depend exclusively on Mr. Cathcart’s legal counsel. They say the government should also perhaps
    obtain advice from international law experts at the Department of Justice and Foreign Affairs to make a decision that includes major risks and,
    considering Canada’s fractional contribution to the air war against ISIL, will not significantly increase the country’s impact in the war against the
    so-called Islamic State.

    The creation of the position of Inspector General was one of the recommendations of the Somalia Commission of Inquiry and has been
    identified by some as a possible solution to the Afghan detainee issue.

    “The appointment of a civilian Judge Advocate General would be a first in Canadian history, although Britain and Australia have had
    this for some time,” said Dewar. “Questions have been raised about the legal advice given on the detainee issue. Drawing on experience
    from beyond the military and outside the chain of command would increase confidence on the part of members of the military and Canadians.”

    La création du poste d’inspecteur général était une des recommandations contenues dans le Rapport de la Commission d’enquête sur la
    Somalie et a aussi été identifié comme une des pistes de solutions possible dans le dossier du transfert des détenus afghans.

    « La nomination d’un Juge-avocat général civil serait une première dans l’histoire canadienne mais pas une première dans les pays
    possédant un régime parlementaire britannique », a pour sa part confirmé Paul Dewar. « Des questions ont été soulevées concernant
    les avis légaux présentés par le Juge-avocat général dans l’affaire des détenus afghans. En faisant appel à lune expertise légale située
    à l’extérieur de la chaîne de commandement militaire permettrait d’accroître la confiance de tous envers l’institution militaire.

    ____________ Sentencing Practice in military Courts, Doctor of Laws thesis, University of South Africa, 2012, 486 p., supervisor: Professor S.S. Terblanche; available at http://uir.unisa.ac.za/bitstream/handle/10500/5969/dissertation_nel_m.pdf?sequence=1 (accessed on 10 August 2013); deals in part with Canadian law;

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the sentencing practice of the military courts. Since an independent and impartial military
    judiciary is essential to ensure that justice is done a further aim of this study is to investigate whether the military courts are impartial,
     independent and affords the accused his fair trial rights. The sentences imposed by military courts are investigated and concerns
    regarding the imposition of these sentences are identified. Finally the appeal and review procedures followed by the military courts are
    investigated with specific reference to the military accused’s right appeal and review to a higher court as provided for by the Constitution.
    The sentencing phase of a trial forms an important part of the whole trial process. This is also true for military trials, yet no research has
    been done on military sentencing practice. Because of the potential influence of the draft Military Discipline Bill and the Law Reform
    Commission’s revision of the defence legislation on sentencing, research in this area is critical in the positive development of sentencing
    law in the military justice environment. An extensive literature study is undertaken to evaluate current military sentencing practices against
    civilian practices. The result of this study identifies certain concerns regarding the independence of the military courts, the treatment of
    military offenders and the appeal and review powers of the military reviewing authority. To a large extent it is also found that many concerns
    are based on the apparent rather than the existence of any real dangers to the independence of the military courts or the rights of the military
    accused. This thesis contributes to the accessibility of military law for a civilian audience, creating a platform for the development of future
    military sentences. (source: http://umkn-dsp01.unisa.ac.za/xmlui/handle/10500/5969)

    NFB STREAMING VIDEO -- YORK UNIVERSITY, NATIONAL FILM BOARD OF CANADA, Open Secrets, Montreal: National Film Board of Canada, 2003, 1 streaming video file (52 min.) : digital, stereo, sd., col.; Note: Produced by the National Film Board of Canada in association with CBC News and Vision TV.; Quebec Centre;

    This provocative documentary uncovers a lost chapter in Canadian military history: how the Armed Forces dealt with homosexual
    behaviour among soldiers, during and after World War II. A group of veterans break their silence after more than 60 years. We hear
    from five men, barely adults when they enlisted. From the sexual timidity of the 1930s, when homosexual behaviour 'was even more
    unmentionable than cancer,' spring these stories of sexual awakening amidst the brutality of war. Soldiers and officers who depended
    upon one another for survival accepted each other's differences. Initially, the Army overlooked homosexual activity, but as the war
    advanced, they began to crack down: military tribunals, threats of imprisonment, discharge and public exposure. After the war, officers
    accused of homosexuality were discharged. Back home in Canada, reputations and careers were ruined. For the young men who had
    served their country with valour, this final chapter was often too much to bear. Interviews are skilfully woven with archival footage
    and rare photographs. Open Secrets is based on the Paul Jackson book, Courting Homosexuals in the Military. Open Secrets was
    produced as part of the Reel Diversity Competition for emerging filmmakers of colour. Reel Diversity is a National Film Board of
    Canada initiative in partnership with CBC Newsworld.

    independent of the chain of command, as she still reports to the second-highest ranking officer in the
    Canadian Forces, Vice-Admiral Gary Garnett, Mr. Noel said. He said there is a fundamental conflict

    It is difficult to know whether the Canadian Forces are capable, or willing, to take the Somalia Inquiry's recommendations as a blueprint to
    begin rebuilding the once proud institutions that are the army, navy and air force. Given the open contempt that some members of the
    Canadian Forces showed the Inquiry Commissioners and the concerted effort they made to delay handing over evidence, the prospects
    of genuine reform seem slight. Even more suspect are the intentions of the Liberal government. The depth of cynicism the Liberals
    demonstrated in dealing with the Inquiry and the public's right-to-know does not suggest a favourable finale to this shameful episode.
    While editorial outrage swept across the nation in wake of the government's decision to close down the Inquiry before the Commissioners
    could complete their mandate, Jean Chretien's backroom boys had correctly judged that Somalia was not going to become an election issue. …

    Artillery Cuff Links - The Honorable Colonel Thomas Grantham Norris QC

    On 6 December 1968, the Honorable Thomas Norris, Q.C., a judge of the Supreme Court of British
    Columbia presented a pair of suitably engraved gold cuff links that were to be worn by the
    Commanding Officer of the Regiment. Colonel Norris began his military career as a Gunner with the
    5th Regiment Canadian Garrison Artillery in Victoria. He rose to the rank of Bombardier prior to
    transferring to the 47th Battalion Canadian Expeditionary Force when a former Commanding Officer
    of the 5th, Lieutenant-Colonel William Norman Winsby, commanded the unit and took it overseas. He
    subsequently transferred to the Canadian Field Artillery and from 
    1917 to 1918 he was a Lieutenant
    with the 10th Battery Canadian Field Artillery, 3rd Brigade and was awarded his first Military Cross
    (MC) for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during operations from September 27th to 30th,
    1918. His citation reads in part, as follows: When a shell landed alongside "E" subsection gun, wounding
    him and three Non Commissioned Officers (NCOs), he saw the NCOs bandaged up and sent to the dressing
    station, and though his wound was most painful, stayed with the battery until the night of September 29th
    when he was finally ordered out by the brigade medical officer. The devotion to duty and coolness under
    fire, of this officer, has always been an inspiration to the men of this battery.  
    One month later he was
    awarded a second MC. His second citation reads in part, as follows: He went forward with a small patrol,
    keeping in touch with the infantry, under heavy shell fire, and sent back information. One of his men and
    all of his horses were killed during the day, but he continued on foot and persevered in the task of enabling
    his battery to support the attack by the information he sent back. 
    After World War I, Norris was called to
    the Bar of British Columbia in January 1919 and practiced law with Barnard, Robertson and Heisterman
    in Vancouver BC. In September 1932 he was created King's Counsel (KC). In World War 2, from 1941
    to 1945 he was Judge Advocate General for the 21st Army Group. After the war he was appointed Judge
    of the Court of Appeal of British Columbia and the Court of Appeal of the Yukon Territory, Judge of the
    Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada, and District Judge in Admiralty for British Columbia.

    OFFICE OF THE INFORMATION COMMISSIONER, "News Release--Information Commissioner launches a systemic investigation into the Department of National Defence", 21 December 2019:

    Gatineau, December 21, 2018 — The Information Commissioner of Canada has initiated a systemic investigation
     into the Department of National Defence (DND) based on allegations the department inappropriately withheld
    information during the processing of access to information requests.

    The department has confirmed with Commissioner Maynard that they will conduct an internal investigation into
    these allegations. The Commissioner welcomes this action while undertaking to conduct her own independent investigation.

    The Access to Information Act provides under section 30(3) that the Information Commissioner may initiate a complaint if
    there are reasonable grounds to investigate a matter relating to requesting or obtaining access to records.

    The Act contains strict confidentiality provisions to protect the integrity of investigations under the Act. As such, no
    additional information or comments can be provided.

    Over the course of Canada’s mission to Afghanistan, CAF
    Legal Officers were deployed into that Theatre of Operations
    on more than 100 occasions for tours of up to one year. These
    numbers represent a significant proportion of the Office of
    the Judge Advocate General, which is only formed of 160 Regular
    Force Legal Officers and 55 Reservists. The Legal Office’s
    commitment to the Afghanistan mission is even more
    impressive when its concurrent contribution to other activities
    is considered. From 2002 to 2013, up to 25% of the JAG Office’s
    effective strength was deployed on international operations and
    operational training exercises in any given year.

    In Afghanistan, legal advice was provided in several distinct
    contexts. This included strategic advice to the Government of
    Afghanistan, operational law advice to both conventional
    military operations and special operations at the battle
    group and unit levels, administrative law and military justice
    advice to Provincial Reconstruction Teams, and mentoring
    advice and training to those members of the Afghan justice
    and law enforcement community tasked with being the boots
    on the ground in the struggle to establish the rule of law in
    that country.

    Support for the mission in Afghanistan was also provided
    by those Legal Officers based in Ottawa working from dedicated
    groups within the Office of the Judge Advocate General who
    assisted their colleagues in Afghanistan when particularly
    specialized questions required detailed analysis by these subject
    matter experts.

    ....With the continuing growth in the complexity of legal issues
    arising from military operations, it is likely that the demand
    for legal advice and services from Canada’s military lawyers
    will continue.

    OFFICE OF THE JUDGE ADVOCATE GENERAL, "Celebrating a Century of Canadian Military Legal Services", The Maple Leaf;
    Today, approximately 180 members of the Military Legal Branch support the Canadian Armed Forces as members
    of the Office of the Judge Advocate General (JAG). Under the leadership of the Judge Advocate General, Commodore
    Geneviève Bernatchez, these members work as legal advisors in the areas of operational law, military justice, and
    military administrative law. Their files address law, at home or abroad, for operations on land, at sea, in the air, and
    even in outer space or cyberspace; for all aspects of military judicial processes such as the presumption of innocence,
    search, seizure, arrest and detention; and for all personnel-related matters from recruitment to release and beyond.
    This requires in-depth knowledge, agility and personal stamina to be able to maneuver through an environment of
    hifting global allegiances, borderless conflicts, natural disasters, evolving societal demands, pervasive communications,
    and rapid technological advancements.

    BUREAU DU JUGE AVOCAT GÉNÉRAL, "Célébrer un siècle de services juridiques des Forces armées canadiennes", La Feuille d'érable;
    Aujourd’hui, environ 180 membres de la Branche des services juridiques appuient les Forces armées canadiennes
    en faisant partie du Cabinet du juge-avocat général. Sous la direction du  juge-avocat générale, le commodore
    Geneviève Bernatchez, ces membres font office de conseillers juridiques dans les domaines du droit opérationnel,
    de la justice militaire et du droit administratif militaire. Leurs dossiers portent sur le droit applicable dans les opérations
    terrestres, maritimes, aériennes et même de l’espace cosmique ou le cyberespace, au Canada ou à l’étranger et touche
    tous les aspects du processus judiciaire militaire tel que la présomption d’innocence; les comportements sexuels
    préjudiciables et inappropriés; les perquisitions, les saisies, les arrestations et les détentions; ainsi que tous les
    sujets relatifs au personnel à partir du recrutement jusqu’à la libération et même au-delà. L’évolution dans un
    environnement caractérisé par des allégeances mondiales changeantes, des conflits sans frontières, des catastrophes
    naturelles, des demandes sociétales changeantes, l’omniprésence des communications et la progression rapide de
    la technologie requiert une connaissance approfondie, de l’agilité ainsi que de l’endurance.

    "One of the responses to the Somalia Inquiry and Special Advisory Group recommendations was the creation of a Defence Counsel Study Team to evaluate
    different ways by which defence counsel services could be provided in the CF.  The Study Team analyzed seven different possibilities involving civilian or
    military lawyers.  After all of the advantages, disadvantages and costs were considred, and a pool of Canadian Forces members  was conducted as to the
    preferred option, the Study Team made twenty-eight recommendations, including the selection of a Regular Force defence counsel organization.  Most of
    the recommendations were accepted and were reflected in the amendments to the National Defence Act and regulations."  (p. 165)
