May 30, 2022 at 10:59 am  Federal, Politics

Anita Anand, the federal minister of national defence, holds a news conference on Parliament Hill for the release of the final report from the independent review on sexual misconduct in the Canadian Armed Forces. She is joined by Louise Arbour, the former Supreme Court of Canada justice who led the review, as well as General Wayne Eyre, the chief of the defence staff, and Bill Matthews, the deputy minister of national defence. Arbour’s report contains 48 recommendations, which includes a call for civilian criminal courts to have exclusive jurisdiction over criminal sexual offences involving military members. Anand says she will appoint an external monitor to oversee implementation of the recommendations. She also pledges to notify Parliament by the end of 2022 of any recommendations not being implemented.
