Yes, that is kind of what I was saying earlier. That is the big reason I have reservations about the current process, although I do agree it is an improvement over the previous one. This isn't the first time people have said it was impossible to do certain things in the Canadian Forces. But, ultimately, once they're done, they work quite well.
For example, there was discussion about the possibility of having a court martial in Afghanistan. One was held in a murder case. That shows that there is indeed room for improvement.
I quite appreciated another comment someone made earlier, one that supports my views on selection. Again, I am not questioning the court martial administrator's honesty, but the process isn't transparent. It's all done in his office or on his computer. Depending on the rank of the accused, the panel must include a general, a colonel or a lieutenant-colonel, and it can go to the rank of captain currently. But if you limit it to only soldiers, corporals, master corporals and even sergeants now, you exclude over half of Canadian Forces members.
The process is not about being judged by one's peers, although the principle should be the same. This is a slightly more British system where officers had oversight authority over just about everything that went on in their army corps. Today, we are a professional force, and as I said, I knew and still know people with master's degrees. Some have even gone after their Ph.D.'s, and yet they're corporals or master corporals by choice because they wanted a more stable position owing to their families.
