[More on the staff:]
Our excellent staff was led and was largely the creation of our Secretary, Stanley Cohen. A brilliant lawyer with deep experience and understanding of
government, he was able to quickly assemble a core team in the spring of 1995. His skills as an administrator, counsellor, negotiator, and animator of our
group were extraordinary and vital to our success.

As have other inquiries in the past, we relied primarily on the work of legal and research components. Our Senior Counsel were Simon Noël and Barbara
McIsaac who dealt masterfully with an overwhelming amount of documentary evidence, sometimes conflicting requirements of lawyers for the various parties,
and the task of examining witnesses fairly and comprehensively during our televised hearings. They were assisted by Intermediate Counsel Ian Stauffer,
Sylvie Roussel, and Thomas Conway, as well as Junior Counsel Hélène Dorion, Lynn Lovett, John McManus, Eloïse Arbour, and Jennifer Oulton.

During part of our Inquiry we also benefited from the wisdom, wit, and courtroom experience of Hymie Weinstein before he was called back to Winnipeg by the
demands of a public inquiry in his home city. François Daviault and François Lemieux also played an important role in our counsel group at different stages of
our Inquiry.

Our research group, consisting of lawyers and academics with varied and extensive experience, was under the able direction of David Pomerant: Glenn Gilmour, Janice
Tokar, Holly Solomon, Laura Farquharson, Donna Winslow, Claude Bouchard, David Goetz, Ellen Margolese, and Robert Young. This team carried out the monumental
task of reviewing, analyzing, and distilling thousands of pages of material related to our terms of reference and, under our direction, participated in the drafting of major
portions of this report. Eric Myles served as Special Assistant to the Secretary and Chief Historian responsible for the supervision of the group of file analysts who
organized, classified, summarized, and evaluated the massive documentation that we obtained from hundreds of sources (Judith Shane, Robert LeBlond, Stephen Bierbrier,
François-René Dussault, Deirdre Hilary, Christopher Bolland, Pierre Léonard, Tom Clearwater, Deryn Collier, Karen Capen, Ella Heyder, Maureen Armstrong, Ouafaa Douab,
Suzanne Alexander, Cheryl Ringor, Marcia Waldron, Sophie Boulakia, and Alain Laurencelle). Eugene Oscapella and Greg Rose also provided invaluable assistance to both the
research and the file analyst groups in the final report writing phase of our process.

Our military advisers brought a wealth of domestic and international experience to their role as our Technical Advisors: BGen (ret) Jim Simpson, LGen (ret) Jack Vance,
LCol (ret) Doug Bland, Col (ret) Ted Nurse, and François Lareau. Their selfless service to our Inquiry embodied the true meaning of "fidelity to the military institution".
Special investigations were the responsibility of Inspector Gerry Braun and Inspector Dan Killam on loan to us from the RCMP. Their tireless professional service was crucial
 to the success of our operation.

Director of Administration, André Plante, managed our own personnel and resources efficiently, assisted by Management Adviser Maurice Lacasse. Some of the essential
services that we depended on throughout our Inquiry, and which were always performed above and beyond the call of duty, were provided by Library Technician, Linda
Cameron; Neil Blaney, Dennis Brook, and Stephen Charron in Network Support for our computer system; Gail Bradshaw in Information Management; Finance Officer, Hélène
Berthiaume; Records Manager, Gilles Desjardins; and Jane Simms, our supervisor of document processing clerks.

John Koh was both a member of our counsel group and Manager, Litigation Support. He, along with Michael Burn and Paul Harte, was of great assistance to us in organizing and
gaining mastery over the enormous flow of documentation that we were obliged to process.

Our interface with the public, through hearings and media exposure, was the responsibility of Hearing Co-ordinator, Françoise McNamee, and Communications Manager,
Sheena Pennie, of Delta Media, who handled more than 100 media calls daily on occasion.  During the hearings we relied on the experience and abilities of our Registrars, Linda
Martel and Susan Fraser. We also wish to thank Denis Vezina, Marc Mayer, Michel Valiquette, and Gilles Franche who provided security and other support to us during our hearings.

In writing this report we were fortunate to have had the assistance of a team of hard working and professional writers and editors, under the direction of Tom Gussman, Ian Sadinsky,
and Pauline McKillop.  In addition to these, we depended on a daily basis on the dedicated work of our able secretaries, Suzanne Yule, Kim LaViolette , Rachel Sauvé, Kim Lutes,
Sandra Racine, and Ghislaine Trottier, and our receptionist, Ann McAuliff as well as many specialists and technicians throughout our Inquiry, all of whom worked together as a team and
exceeded the formal requirements of their tasks.

    Elle [l'institution militaire] s'est empressée de mettre sur pied un Comité interne présidé
par l'ancien juge en chef du Canada, le Très Honorable Brian Dickson,
dont le mandat était bien évidemment de devancer les recomman-
dations de la Commission [d'enquête sur le déploiement des Forces canadiennes
en Somalie]
pour que, d'une part, quelqu'un d'autre, en
l'occurence l'institution, puisse s'accaparer le mérite des réformes
proposées et que, d'autre part, le gouvernement paraisse anxieux de
passer à l'action.  Cette tactique est bien connue des commissions
d'enquête.

    Le juge Dickson, qui était à la retraite, a contacté directement et à
notre insu notre recherchiste contractuel, qui venait de terminer pour
nous ses travaux, pour se faire remettre les conclusions de son travail
quant à la réforme du système militaire.  Notre recherchiste a refusé
de les lui donner et nous en a avertis immédiatement.  Le juge
Dickson s'est alors adressé à moi pour les obtenir.  La date d'échéance
de ses travaux approchait et il ne disposait de rien sur le sujet.

    Sous la pression du bureau du Conseil privé, j'ai accepté de lui
transmettre le fruit de nos efforts sachant que le matériel serait utilisé
pour nous court-circuiter.  J'ai estimé que c'était là une concession que
j'étais prêt à faire pour que la réforme se fasse.  De fait il y avait plus de
chance que les propositions soient adoptées si elles paraissaient venir
de l'interne que de nous.

    Mais quelle scène pathétique et navrante que celle de la conférence
de presse du ministère de la Défense annonçant leurs propositions à
laquelle on a d
û amener le juge Dickson en fauteuil roulant et où celui-ci
est tombé endormi durant la conférence.  Mais l'ingratitude ne s'est pas
limitée au fait de nous court-circuiter.  Par la suite, à chaque occasion
qui se présentait, l'institution militaire a toujours mis l'accent sur le
rapport Dickson comme étant la source de la réforme, reléguant, car
elle ne pouvait les ignorer, les propositions de la Commission au second
et troisième rang. (pp. 121-122)

Research notes by François Lareau  (20 July 2008)/
Notes de recherches de François Lareau (20 juillet 2008)

Colonel Allan Fenske, Deputy Judge Advocate General, Advisory and Legislation, Office of the Judge Adovate General, Canadian Forces,  was in charge of the National Defence Act Amendment Team.  He was assisted by  Lieutenant Colonel Alex Weatherston, Office of the Judge Advocate General.  This Amendment Team prepared a backgrounder and other documents for the committees (committee binder prepared by the team)..

All the documents given to each of the committees are kept in the committee's wallet (file of the committee).  The wallets would now be at Library and Archives and can be consulted (Bill C-25, 36th Parliament, 1st Session).

The Office of the Judge Advocate General would also have files (paper and computer) on this Bill.

Both Library and Archives Canada, and the Office of the JAG  are subject to the Access to Information Act.

- I just reminded the Minister of National Defence by e-mail that the LeSage report that was submitted on or before 31 December 2011
  (I presume, see Directive, paragraph 7) should be tabled in the House of Commons a.s.p.  This report is relevant to Bill C-15 
   (posted on 2 March 2012).

- I was not certain 100% that the Minister of National Defence was in possession since December 2011 of the LeSage report on military law and extremely relevant to the Bill  now before the House of Commons.
  Now I know for sure that the Minister is hidding things from the House members and Canadians.  If you go to the web site of the law firm Gowlings, http://www.gowlings.com/OurPeople/lynn-mahoney (click on
  "Representation Work"), you will read:

                In March 2011, Lynn acted as counsel and assisted the Honourable Patrick
                LeSage to conduct an Independent Review of the Military Justice provisions
               of the National Defence Act. The report was delivered in December 2011.
