Canadian legislative hearing on Bill C-77

The Standing Committee on National Defence of the Canadian House of Commons conducted a hearing on November 1, 2018 with respect to Bill C-77. The measure would, among other things, address summary trials in the armed forces. Bar of Quebec witnesses Siham Haddadi and Pascal Levesque raised concerns about that part of the bill, suggesting that it be postponed and reconsidered because it underestimates the bill's impact on the rights of military personnel.
