Canada names a new (temporary) Vice Chief of the Defence Staff

Lieutenant-General Alain Parent, RCAF
The Chief of the Defence Staff, General John Vance, has appointed Lieutenant-General Alain Parent as the new acting Vice Chief of the Defence Staff. Parent will assumed the VCDS duties on May 30, 2017. He will replace Vice-Admiral Ron Lloyd , the Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy, who has acted as the VCDS since the 'temporary' removal of Vice Admiral Mark Norman. Although no official reasons have been given for the removal of Norman, the media has reported that his removal is associated with the alleged release of information connected to the shipbuilding program. See National Post - March 7, 2017
