Inside Canada’s broken military justice system

THE BIG STORY | posted Monday, Jul 19th, 2021

In today’s Big Story podcast, last week, retired general Jonathan Vance, former chief of the defence staff, was charged with obstruction of justice related to an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct. That sounds like a shocking piece of news, but really it was an almost inevitable conclusion of the latest scandal that put Canada’s military justice system, or lack thereof, on the front pages.

This has been a story for decades now, and various governments and the armed forces have frequently vowed to fix it. Committees are formed. Reports are written. Recommendations are made. And then we end up here. Again. Why?

GUEST: Marie-Danielle Smith, Maclean’s
