    Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, alongside senior officials from the Department of National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces, announced Thursday the launch of an independent and comprehensive review into sexual misconduct within the military and the Department of Defence.

    Former Supreme Court justice Louise Arbour will lead the investigation which will include examining the performance evaluation and promotion system and how leaders are selected and trained within the forces.

    The review will also address how sexual misconduct reports are handled and will centre around providing recommendations to set up an independent reporting system so that military members can share allegations of sexual misconduct outside of the military chain of command.

    The announcement comes nearly three months after Global News first reported Gen. Jonathan Vance was facing allegations of inappropriate behaviour. In the weeks since, military police have opened probes into Vance as well as Adm. Art McDonald, Vance’s successor as chief of the defence staff. Multiple women have also spoken out publicly to share allegations of high-level sexual misconduct in the Canadian Forces.
