A federal judge has rejected a top Canadian soldier's bid to get his job back as the head of vaccine rollout in Canada.

The decision by Justice Ann Marie McDonald follows a two-day hearing last month in which government lawyers argued that if Major-General Dany Fortin was not happy with his removal in May, he should file a formal complaint with the military.

Fortin says his ouster was political.

McDonald says he should try the military's grievance system.

He was sacked amid a sexual misconduct allegation dating back a couple of decades.
