Canada’s Conservative Party moved a motion in parliament on April 30th, local time, asking Katie Telford, Mr. Trudeau’s chief aide and the prime minister’s chief of staff, to be heard in front of a parliamentary committee. The Conservatives accused Mr. Trudeau’s cabinet of knowing about the military sex scandal for a long time, but had been harbouring Jonathan Vance, then chief of the defence staff.
By that afternoon, the hearing committee had suspended the meeting, but had not determined when the debate would resume.
Last week, Elder Marquez, a former aide to Mr. Trudeau, acknowledged that Katie Telford, the prime minister’s chief of staff, or someone close to Mr. Trudeau knew about the military sex scandal as early as March 2018. Gary Walbourne, then the military ombudsman, later confirmed that he had reported complaints of sexual misconduct against Vance to Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan on 1 March 2018.
The ruling Liberal government appears to be once again in a similar predicament to the “Lan Wanling incident” amid an investigation into a sex scandal in the Canadian army. Media reports in 2019 about Mr. Trudeau’s alleged meddling in Mr. Lambert’s handling of the company led to the resignation of Gerard Bartz, Mr. Trudeau’s longtime friend and his chief secretary, and the transfer of Judy Wilson-Rebold, then attorney general and attorney general.
On the same day, Major General Peter Dawe, commander of Canada’s special forces, sent an open letter to the media apologizing for influencing the verdict by harbouring subordinates for sexual offences in 2017.
