Gen. Jonathan Vance’s final speech as commander of Canada’s military

Gen. Jonathan Vance's final speech as commander of Canada's military 1


Admiral Art McDonald is taking over as commander of Canada's military in a low-key ceremony devoid of the normal pomp and circumstance due to COVID-19.

As the new chief of the defence staff McDonald succeeds Gen. Jonathan Vance, who kicked off the change-of-command ceremony by using his final speech in uniform to bid an emotional farewell to the troops.

Vance also encouraged them to face all challenges foreign and domestic, including rooting out hatred and intolerance in the ranks, which Vance painted as critical for future military success.
