Global News published this video item, entitled “Freeland “surprised and disturbed” navy head kept job after golfing with Vance” – below is their description.

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said she was “surprised and disturbed” to learn Vice-Adm. Craig Baines will be keeping his job as head of the navy despite a widely condemned decision to go golfing with Gen. Jonathan Vance while the former top solider remains under military police investigation.

The decision that Baines can remain in his post as commander of the Royal Canadian Navy was billed as a chance for him to “redeem himself” by acting chief of the defence staff Lt.-Gen. Wayne Eyre in an internal message to military members on Monday.

Freeland was asked about that decision and said she doubts women in the military feel comforted to see Baines keeping his position.
