    1. Justin is not in charge of the military. He is only responsible for the Department of National Defence, which Vance isn’t in that chain of command. He reports to the Governor General.

    1. @Sven K If you are asking if I can speak from a point of experience and knowledge, then yes, I am a knowing person in this topic.

    2. @W L No one in a uniform is going to answer this question, and shouldn’t. This indicates you don’t have experience in this field, or you would know not to ask this question. You don’t have to be in the military to knowingly speak about this topic. You can be a family member, a spouse, a public servant, a contractor, a veteran, a witness, or a whole host of other exposures/experiences with the military culture.

  1. What about Justin Trudeau’s obstruction of justice in the SNC Lavalin affair. Oh yeah different Scandal, different guy, different rules.

  2. we already have laws for all this why do they need to investigate on whether or not to produce more laws and why do they have a problem not producing actual evidence but making accusations

  3. Civilian courts? Not a military court? Doesn’t sound like something that happened on the job?

  4. Rings a bell. Admiral Norman. Trudeau set him up, threw him under the bus in order to deflect away from the truth of his own involvement. Then paid him off big time to go away and shut up. Expect the same for Vance. He will hint at something bigger involving trudeau and sajjin, then his charges will be dropped and he will be provided with a “package”, and quickly disappear from the public, never to be seen again (likely set up in another country).

  5. The PM got a pass on his obstruction of Justice when he fired Jodi Wilson Raybolt. Vance must be a conservative under a separate set of laws

  6. How do these politicians get away with everything we need a whole New establishment. everyone needs to leave and we need to clean house, for new politicians that are true…
