Re: “Winds of change? Reforming Canadian military justice law,” (The Hill Times online, Jan. 25). I must correct and comment on Michel Drapeau’s observations on the military justice system. Unlike Mr. Drapeau, I have acted as counsel for accused at courts martial. I have also prosecuted at courts martial and appeared as counsel at the Court Martial Appeal Court. This was all during my 30-year-plus career in the Office of the Judge Advocate General (JAG). I have also advised the chain of command on operations in disciplinary matters most recently in Afghanistan, 2010-2011.
