Alleslev says Defence Minister ‘chose to turn a blind eye’ to allegations of sexual misconduct against former CDS
On “The West Block” Mercedes Stephenson is joined by members of the parliamentary defence committee to discuss their probe into allegations of sexual misconduct in the Canadian Armed Forces. On the panel: Conservative MP Leona Alleslev, NDP MP Randall Garrison and Liberal MP Karen McCrimmon. Alleslev says Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan could have done more with the allegations brought to him, “…he can take action, investigate and that’s exactly what he should have done. It’s his sworn oath to do so, and he chose to turn a blind eye.” Gen. Vance denies all allegations of sexual misconduct.
