As promised, here’s what we know so far about the upcoming weeks.
The subject witnesses, who were all scheduled to testify over the next three weeks, have been adjourned, pending further document disclosures and testimony from non-subject witnesses. From now until mid-May, we have the following:
Apr. 27: Brigadier-General Richard Blanchette, Director General Operations at the Department of National Defence, and Jillian Stirk, Assistant Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, DFAIT (discussing the issue of document disclosures to the Commission)
May 6 (and potentially May 7): International law experts Professors Marco Sassoli and Craig Forcese
May 11: Lieutenant-General Michel Gauthier, Commander Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEFCOM)
May 12: Brigadier-General Guy Laroche, Task Force Afghanistan Commander in 2007
BCCLA Counsel Carmen Cheung will be in Ottawa for the sessions in May, and we’ll be providing coverage of that testimony here, so stay tuned.
