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.”

Abstract

On 20–21 July 1944 the 6th Canadian Infantry Brigade was engaged
in combat operations on Verrières Ridge south of Caen. Enemy resistance
was stronger than expected and the Canadian attack was met by strong
German counterattacks supported by armour. During the course of the
battle, two units, the Essex Scottish Regiment and the South Saskatchewan
Regiment were driven back. In the aftermath of the battle the Essex Scottish
Regiment and their commanding officer were criticized for their poor performance.
This article examines the battle in an attempt to understand who was to blame.
Lieutenant–Colonel B.J.S. MacDonald, the commanding officer of the Essex Scots,
was fired for his role in the battle, but this article posits that Brigadier Hugh A.
Young bears the greater share of responsibility for the operation’s failure.

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.

___________"BIOGRAPHY  -- Colonel Bruce MacGregor, C.D., Q.C., LL.M., LL.B., B.A.", 2019 (copy received from Colonel Bruce MacGregor, 31 May 2019);


,                                                BIOGRAPHY

                                                   Colonel
                        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
providing legal advice to the ship’s Commander in support of OP AUGMENTATION in
1999.

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
Deputy Director Military Prosecutions in Ottawa where he guided a team of regular and
reserve force military prosecutors and civilian staff in charge of prosecuting persons
under the Code of Service Discipline at courts martial and the Court Martial Appeal
Court.

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.

There were hugs, kisses and plenty of tears as 150 troops said their goodbyes Saturday before departing
on a six-month mission into the great unknown of Afghanistan.
...
Defence Minister John McCallum reiterated the point Saturday, acknowledging that Canadians will be
in harm's way but reminding them that they are there for Canada's security as well as Afghanistan's.
...
...Major Louis MacKay of Halifax, a legal advisor to the brigade commander, said the troops are
well-equipped with what everybody is calling "robust" rules of engagement.

It is Maj. MacKay's job to interpret those rules for the Canadian contingent. He said the interpretations
of "lethal force" vary among the nations involved but the Canadians, he said, "are equipped for everything."

"As in any mission, the rules of engagement cannot negate the inherent right of self-defence."

MACKAY, Peter, "Minister of National Defence Statement on the Canadian Forces Judge Advocate General", Statement / December 20, 2012 / Project number: NR 12.265, available at http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/news/article.page?doc=minister-of-national-defence-statement-on-the-canadian-forces-judge-advocate-general/hgq87xa8 (accessed 12 April 2018);
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.

Abstract

 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.

ABSTRACT

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.

I originally chose the Royal Military College because of the Regular Officer Training Program (ROTP) with the Canadian Forces. Under this program, they paid me to study. It was a great program
which I highly recommend other students to consider.
....
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.

Abstract

This article identifies, describes, and provides two military justice examples of a
phenomenon that is labeled as "comparative cherry-picking," whereby scholars
and jurists rely upon extra-jurisdictional law in their efforts to promote more expansive
human rights protections. The article then discusses some of the seemingly overlooked
pitfalls of the comparative cherry-picking phenomenon, including treaty denunciation,
"cheap talk", human rights backsliding, and desuetude – all of which could result in
counter-productive advocacy strategies on the part of human rights activists, when
increases to international human rights standards lead, in turn, to decreases in levels
of state protection of human rights. Thus, in addition to demonstrating the flaws with
the comparative cherry-picking phenomenon as a matter of positive international law,
this article also ultimately demonstrates how the phenomenon can be damaging to
the cause of those who care about human rights protections.

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);

Abstract

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.

Biography

Mike Madden is a PhD in Law candidate at the University of Ottawa Centre for Law, Technology and Society, under
 the supervision of Prof. Elizabeth Judge.

Mike Madden’s research focuses on the use of computer-based Natural Language Processing techniques, together with elements
of applied linguistics theory, as a means of assessing the readability and comprehensibility of various sources of law and legal information.

Mike Madden completed both his LLM and MA in English at Dalhousie University. He has published widely in law journals from around
the world, primarily on topics relating to criminal law and procedure, international law, evidence law, military law, and judicial/appellate
review. His publications have been cited by all levels of court in Canada, including two articles that have been cited by the Supreme Court
of Canada (in 2016 and 2019).

Prior to commencing his PhD, Mike Madden spent 25 years in the Canadian Forces where he first served as an Artillery Officer, then
as a Naval Operations Officer, and finally as a Legal Officer within the Office of the Judge Advocate General. In this last capacity, he
was frequently the lead instructing counsel and policy architect for Bills proposing legislative amendments to the National Defence Act,
such as Bill C-77, an Act that fundamentally transforms the Canadian Forces’ summary trial system into a non-criminal, non-penal
forum for maintaining military discipline. His last posting was as the Director of Military Personnel Law, where he was the senior legal
advisor to the Canadian Forces’ Chief of Military Personnel (essentially the Chief Military Human Resources Officer), providing legal
advice and support in respect of diverse military administrative, employment, and human rights law questions.

___________"Canada's troops lack solid grasp of military law" 28 April 1997 27(2) University of Calgary Gazette; available at http://www.ucalgary.ca/uofc/events/unicomm/Research/somalia.html (accessed on 23 April 2014);

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.

General

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
to be written.

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 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
assault.

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."

After earning a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Laws and a Masters Degree in Law,

Maguire served as a prosecutor in Atlantic Canada and as defence counsel at Canadian Forces Europe bases in Germany.

He was deployed to the Arabian Gulf – the first legal officer since the Korean War to serve on active service with a Naval Task group.

Maguire was deployed in Bahrain during the Gulf War as legal advisor to the Commander of the Canadian Forces Middle East.

In the late 1990’s, he played a formative military justice policy development role in the post-Somalia inquiry transformation of
Canada’s military justice system.

That led to some of the most sweeping set of reforms to Canada’s National Defence Act since 1950 and modernization of the trial
 system and Court Martial Appeal Court Rules.

After serving in Ottawa for a year as the special assistant to the JAG, Maguire returned to Halifax in 2001 to become the Assistant
Judge Advocate for the Atlantic Region.   Responsibilities entailed the provision of legal advice and services for all aspects of military
law to all sea, land and air units of the Canadian Forces in the Atlantic provinces.

He received a JAG Commendation for supporting the Commander of the Maritime Forces Atlantic in response to the 9/11 terrorist
attacks and follow-up on naval deployments to the Persian Gulf.

Maguire was deputy legal advisor to the NATO commander, Stabilization Force in Bosnia and received Commendation for his work
on law reform there, from U.S. Lieutenant-General William Ward.

Back in Canada, Maguire worked for the Department of Justice’s Legal Service Unit, responsible for claims and civil litigation. He
later became a Deputy Judge Advocate General/Operations, responsible for the provision of all operational legal advice and
services by legal officers deployed to Afghanistan, Congo and Sudan. Maguire deployed to Afghanistan to provide mission-critical
legal advice on targeting, use of force, detainee transfer, and other issues to the Commander, Commander Joint Task Force Afghanistan.

In recent years, he served as head of the independent Canadian Military Prosecution Service, supervising a number of
legally ground breaking, high profile cases. In 2010, he became the first regular forces legal officer to appear as Crown
Counsel before the Supreme Court of Canada.

[Abstract]
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

Résumé
Jusqu'à présent, les obligations juridiques des états utilisant les compagnies militaires privées pour défendre leurs forces militaires publiques n'étaient pas très définies.
Récemment, des initiatives internationales telles que "Montreux Document" et le "Draft International Convention on the Regulation, Oversight and Monitoring of Private
Military and Security Companies" ont tenté de clarifier le droit afin de réduire les risques posés par l'utilisation de compagnies privées dans un rôle militaire. Cet article
cherche à situer le Canada dans ce cadre juridique amilioré et à fournir un point de départ à des recherches futures dans ce domaine.

___________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);

Description:

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
CF
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
legal
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)

When Diana Mansour, a second-year student at the time, was observing
a trial being conducted by David Barrison, she had no idea that she'd
soon be immersed in litigation involving Canada's Special Operations
Force
(SOF) community, learning the intricacies of combat arms or
navigating the
misery of tear gas. At the time, Mr. Barrison was conducting
a human traf-
ficking trial with David Hodson. During a break, Mr. Hodson
learned that
Ms. Mansour was interested in part-time distance work
while finishing her JD
at the University of Windsor. Recognizing her potential,
and with the bless
ing of Mr. Barrison, he immediately made her an offer of
employment.
....
   

as an aside, with her knowledge of Arabic and Arab culture, it wasn't long before
both JAG and the SOF community were
showing an interest in her future.


Ms. Mansour, as an articling student, argued the first Jordan application within
a military Court Mar-
tial.She, vis-a-vis 11(b) of The Charter, an eighteen-month
time frame.
Her accomplishment is more pro-nounced knowing that a CM is
deemed a Superior Court.
She subsequently argued four more applications,
in
cluding a Corbett, Similar Fact and a. s. 276 -all were successful. ....


Captain Diana Mansour has successfully represented a number of accused in
civilian trials, but after her
Call to the Bar, she accepted an offer from Defence
Counsel Services, of Canada's Judge Advocate General. ....


As a Reserve Legal Officer, many may think she's only a courtroom warrior, but
her skill with a rifle, to-
gether with her linguistic abilities germane to a wartorn region,
will, inshallah (God willing), provide her with
many opportunities to deploy as a
soldier.
In the interim, she continues to maintain a criminal law practice with Carlos
Da Cruz and David Hodson, as well as crossing the country to appear at Court Martial.

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.

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;

Abstract

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

The men say that in February 1984 they were among 33 young recruits who were stripped naked, crowded into small military

 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.”

___________on André Marin, read WARD, John, "[Andre Marin, the Canadian Forces ombudsman, wants to fine-tune his mandate]", Canadian Press NewsWire, Dec 16, 1999;

Description: OTTAWA (CP) - [Andre Marin], the Canadian Forces ombudsman, wants to fine-tune his
mandate, expand his right to watch the military justice system and open his door to anyone with a beef
against National Defence. Marin said military lawyers interpret a section of the rules to mean they're out
of range of the ombudsman. Lawyers shouldn't enjoy a "zone of immunity." He said he doesn't want to
run afoul of lawyer-client privilege or the sanctity to trial decisions, but added he should be able to look
at questions of legal process, such as undue delays. Lawyers and the military can't be allowed to shelter
behind a broad interpretation of privilege, he said.

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»

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.

“Between 1995 and 1996 Lieutenant Commander Dean Marsaw underwent court martial
proceedings over the alleged abuse of his crew on board Her Majesty’s Canadian Submarine
OJIBWA.  Allegations ranged from verbal to physical abuse and included an alleged incident
of sexual abuse of a subordinate on board the boat he commanded. While the media focused
on weaknesses in the Canadian Forces (CF)  military justice system throughout Marsaw’s
court martial, this paper examines the ‘lost story’ concerning the court martial – how key
lessons can be identified for the Canadian Forces in the areas of organizational culture,
leadership and accountability. Marsaw’s court martial represents three key factors in the
relationship between culture, leadership and accountability: the critical role of the leader
as the primary agent who embeds culture in an organization; the historical and leadership
style influences in Canadian submarine culture that impacted Marsaw’s leadership ability;
and at the instruction level, the requirement for external accountability mechanisms due to
failures in the CF’s ability to self-regulate as a profession. The Somalia Commission identified
the need for renewal in the areas of culture, leadership, and accountability during the era of
Somalia and Marsaw, and fundamental changes have taken place in both CF culture and
leadership; however, negligible change has occurred in the realm of accountability. While
the Department of National Defence (DND) and the CF hold to the principles of and
reporting requirements for accountability to the federal government, the CF has failed
to introduce effective changes in the area of accountability for leader behaviour both
at the individual and unit level, proving that the CF has lost its privilege for self-regulation
as a profession of arms until it makes significant changes in this area.” ( p. viii)

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.

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.

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....

"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

Background
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 ("Bill"), 1918-2009, biography, available at http://www.canadianarmyaviation.ca/last_flight.html (accessed 11 October 2018);
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.

 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."

Allan Bruce McKinnon

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.

McKINNON, John Lauchlin, Colonel, member of the Bar of Nova Scotia, see the article by Barry Cahill, "Actions not words: Lawyers and the First World War",  an excerpt of this article was published in The Society Record, Vol. 35 No. 2, Fall 2016, available at http://nsbs.org/actions-not-words-lawyers-and-first-world-war (accessed 27 July 2018)

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.

Major Fiona G. McLean

Major and Canadian Forces Decoration aide-de-camp Fiona G. McLean, a Calgary barrister
and solicitor, is completing her 32nd and final year with the Canadian Army Reserve. Born
in Glasgow, Scotland, she joined The Calgary Highlanders in June 1987, at age 19, as part
of the Summer Youth Employment Program. She began her military training as a logistician
while pursuing a bachelor of history at the University of Calgary. Admitted to the officer
program, she completed her qualification training at Canadian Forces Base(CFB) Petawawa,
Ont., prior to being promoted second lieutenant in September 1988. During the summers of
1989 and 1990, McLean worked under the auspices of the Office of the Judge Advocate
General at CFB Calgary
and completed her officer training at CFB Borden, Ont.; following
which she was promoted to lieutenant. While studying law at the University of Alberta from
1989 to 1992, she was attached posted to the Loyal Edmonton Regiment before returning to
Calgary to article with the City of Calgary Law Department. In 1994, after completing the
Militia Officer Staff Course at CFB Chilliwack, B.C., McLean was promoted to captain. In
1996, with limited ability to continue rising through the ranks within her regiment as a logistician,
she decided to reclassify to infantry. In 2002, she was attached posted to the 14 Calgary Service
Battalion acting as the second-in-command of the Close Support Company and, later, as their
operations officer. The following year, McLean acted as a tactical civil-military co-operation
operator for Land Force Western Area (LFWA) and, finally, returned as operations officer
with her home unit. From August 2004 to February 2005, she volunteered to deploy in
Bosnia-Herzegovina, where she first partook in Operation Bronze as civil-military co-operation
liaison officer under NATO command. Once the European-Union task force took over command
from NATO as Operation EUFOR-Althea, McLean served as adjutant to the Canadian National
Support Element during the last part of Operation Boreas. Upon her return, and through to 2010,
she served in a variety of roles for the 41 Canadian Brigade Group and Collective Training Team
of LFWA. In 2012, she was appointed officer commanding of the Battleschool South Training
Company (South) of 41 Canadian Brigade Group, and was promoted to major. In 2016, she was
appointed for the second time as aide-de-camp to the lieutenant-governor of Alberta, a duty she
continues to fulfill.

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
afghane.
 

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.

___________"Military Enjoys Rights", The Ottawa Citizen, 5 December 1996, at p. A14; 
 

As I read the Nov. 29 editorial, ``Officer can eat again,'' on the Dean Marsaw case,
I felt compelled to respond to the egregious error that it contains. It states:
``Our Charter of Rights and Freedoms does not apply to members of the military...''
This is plainly wrong.

Just because someone joins the Forces, he does not lose the protection of the
Canadian Charter of Rights. Soldiers are not second-class citizens; they enjoy the
same rights and freedoms as everyone else. The Charter has been used to bring
about many changes to the military justice system.

It is highly unprofessional, bordering on incompetence, to suggest that military
members are not protected by our Charter.

Opposition Liberals are demanding Alberta Solicitor General Heather Forsyth

The accusations, made during a court martial of her son at CFB Gagetown

....

Forsyth's son was found guilty of assault causing bodily harm at the court
martial. Cpl. Thomas Forsyth was sentenced to eight months in a military
prison but has been released while the case is being appealed.

According to the transcript, the military investigator said the original
criminal case fell apart after Heather Forsyth persuaded her son's girlfriend not to testify.

....
Forsyth was not solicitor general at the time, but was a member of the legislature.

to sections
696.1-696.6 of the Criminal Code and the Regulations Respecting
Applications
for Ministerial Review – Miscarriages of Justice. As part of this
process, Mr. McNairn prov
ides advice to the Federal Minister of Justice
with regard to whether an applic
ant should be granted a remedy (i.e., a

20new trial or a referral to the court of appeal) because there is a reasonable

to conclude that a miscarriage of justice likely occurred in his or her case.
Mr. McNairn was called to the bar of Ontario in 1988. He received his post-secondary
education at Carleton
University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree

3, the University of Ottawa where he earned
his Bachelor of Laws
degree in 1986, and Wilfrid Laurier University where he
earned his Master of Arts degr
ee (Military History) in 1997. After articling in Ottawa,
Mr. McNairn spen
t nine years in private practice in Stratford, Kitchener-Waterloo and
Ottawa.
His practice focussed on litigation with an emphasis on criminal law
includ
ing defence and prosecution work. Mr. McNairn enrolled in the Canadian Forces
(CF) in 1984 as a non-
commissioned member of a reserve infantry regiment. He was
commissioned
from the ranks in 1986 and served thereafter as a reserve infantry officer.
In
1996 Mr. McNairn became a reserve legal officer with the Office of the Judge
Advocate General for the CF and transferred to the regular force a short time later.
After five years of full-time m
ilitary service – three of those years as a military defence
counsel - Mr. McNair
n left the regular force in 2002 and accepted his present position
with
the Department of Justice. Mr. McNairn is active in the Canadian Bar Association
and in particular served as
chair of the National Military Law Section in 2002-2003.
He is the author of
several published articles on military law and justice issues and
is presently

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 chaplain 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
indecency.

[Abstract]
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.

(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.»

    Pembroke -- The newly-elected president of the Association of
Provincial Criminal Court Judges is calling for higher salaries and
improved benefits, to give its 150 members parity with district court
judges.

   Renfrew County provincial court Judge Russell Merredew, 56, was
elected association president at the group's annual meeting at the end
of May.
....

    Merredew began his career as a military lawyer at CFB Petawawa in
1956 and joined a civilian law firm in Pembrooke in 1960.  He formed his
own law firm in 1969, and continued in private practice until named to
the provincial court bench in 1977.

___________"La justice militaire dans la mire de la Cour suprême", L'actualité, 7 mai 2015; disponible à http://www.lactualite.com/actualites/quebec-canada/la-fin-de-la-justice-militaire/  (vérifié le 8 mai 2015);

Marco Morin, un avocat de Victoriaville et lieutenant-colonel à la retraite, a souvent plaidé en cour martiale, lui qui a exercé le droit dans les Forces pendant
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.

Summary
Administered yearly, the Survey on the Summary Trial Process supports the Judge Advocate General’s requirement to conduct annual reviews
of the administration of military justice. Since 2007, this survey has been administered by the Directory of Military Personnel Operational
Research and Analysis (DMPORA) on behalf of the Directorate of Law/Military Justice Policy and Research. In 2009, 423 responses were
collected from those accused, Assisting Officers (A)s), Presiding Officers (POs), Commanding Officers (Cos), Review Authorities (RAs) and
Charging Authorities (CAs) involved in the summary trials (ST) process in the 2008/09 fiscal year. Consistent with previous years, respondents
of the survey were generally satisfied with the summary trial process, regardless of the role they played in the process. – p. i

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.
