Evening Tim , having just read this litany of prejudice I can only agree with you and your fellow countryman .

Whilst very sympathetic with the comments it appears that he is the only one with the b...'s to state the obvious to his government .

He has had the guts to stand up and be counted where others seem to dither and look for votes rather than results .......very much like the current state this side of the pond

The latest in this disgraceful saga:

(From the Ottawa Citizen)

Legal defence fund for Vice Admiral Mark Norman edges toward its goal

"I recently wrote about a fundraising effort that had been started to help Vice Admiral Mark Norman with his legal bills as he fights allegations by the RCMP that he leaked sensitive government information to ensure a navy supply ship was built.

A Go Fund Me account, with a goal of raising $50,000, was established by retired Canadian Army Colonel Lee Hammond of Vancouver.

Hammond said he started the initiative after he learned the Canadian government had rejected a request from Norman for legal assistance because the Department of National Defence already considered him guilty of disclosing confidential information.
"

It is very interesting to read the comments on the GoFundMe page - the Admiral is obviously extremely highly respected by all who know him and have chosen to comment.

I sincerely hope that sense will prevail and that the individual persecuting him gets his comeuppance .

It is of little use now as the Admiral has set his compass on a different course it seems , but the loss to your country is unforgivable
