Top sailor part of plan to make Libs honour contract: RCMP

Canadian Press reports on what the RCMP found to be nefarious efforts by Vice Admiral Mark Norman to pressure the new Liberal government into fulfilling a contract with the firm of Chantier Davie to provide the navy with a new supply ship. The Mounties said in their request for a search warrant of Norman’s home that he had leaked information to Davie and others in the media that the Trudeau cabinet was about to kill or delay the contract. This was a violation of cabinet secrecy punishable by imprisonment. In the end, the Liberals went ahead with the contract because there was an $89 million penalty attached to cancellation. Admiral Norman is defended by Toronto criminal lawyer Marie Henein. CP
