Quote of the day

Justice (ret) Gilles Létourneau writes in the Ottawa Citizen:
Military tribunals are tribunals of exception and, by definition, the law governing them often derogates from the law applicable to and the rights conferred upon civilians. The ensuing derogations are more serious if the military tribunals are invested with the power to try ordinary criminal offences which would normally be tried by civilian tribunals.
