Alleged abuse, humiliation occurred at Canadian Forces bases

On April 24, 2016 CBC News reports that alleged abuse of Canadian soldiers at the hands of their own military during training exercises was widespread in the 80’s and 90s. 

This report followed a more detailed report by CBC News broadcasted on The National on April 10, 2017 that alleged torture by a dozen of ex-soldiers took place in 1984 at Camp Wainwright, Alberta.   

The Chief of the Defence Staff, General Jon Vance, has yet to respond to these allegations. Meanwhile, the Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture, calls what happened to the soldiers “an embarrassment to Canadians.”
