    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s chief of staff, Katie Telford denied knowing the nature of sexual misconduct allegations against Gen. Jonathan Vance in 2018 during her testimony before the House of Commons defence committee on Friday.

    Telford repeatedly did not answer multiple questions from members of the committee about who made the decision not to tell the prime minister about the allegations, because both she and former senior advisor Elder Marques had been told that bureaucrats were best-placed to probe the allegation.

    Telford’s appearance comes as the government faces intense scrutiny over its handling of a 2018 allegation shared with Sajjan, and the Prime Minister’s Office, by the then-military ombudsman.

    Marques, a former senior adviser to Trudeau, testified two weeks ago that Telford was aware of what he described as a “personal misconduct” allegation against Vance.

    Trudeau has claimed “no one knew it was a Me Too complaint,” yet bureaucrats were characterizing the allegation as one related to “sexual harassment” within hours of being informed.
