The Supreme Court agreed to decide on the independence of Canadian military judges

BY Connect News, Feb 2, 2023 8:48 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

The Supreme Court of Canada has agreed to decide whether military judges are truly independent.

The Supreme Court of Canada issued its ruling this morning in response to an appeal by several service members whose criminal cases are pending.

As per the rules, the court provided an explanation for its decision to hear the case, which is a 2018 case when a top army judge was accused of fraud.

Although the case against Colonel Mario Dutil was eventually dismissed, it set off a series of events that led to tensions between the remaining military judges and then-Defense Chief General Jonathan Vance.

The Supreme Court's decision to hear the case comes at a time when the military justice system is facing significant challenges and repeated calls for reform.
