Cornwall ON – Canada’s head honcho in Afghanistan, Brigadier-General Daniel Menard, has been given the chop and recalled to Canada over allegations that he got his freak on. Apparently it’s against the rules for Canadian Military to have intimate relations while on duty; at least over seas while on a mission.
“Sexual activity or any other form of intimate contact in any context with another individual is prohibited anywhere in the Joint Task Force Afghanistan Area of Operations,” according to theatre standing orders governing personal relationships.
Only last Tuesday, Menard pleaded guilty at a court martial in Gatineau, Que., to negligently discharging his rifle. That incident, which took place in March, involved Menard inadvertently firing his rifle as he was about to board a U.S. army helicopter in Kandahar with Canada’s top soldier, Gen. Walt Natynczyk.
Methinks the Canadian Armed Forces is being a bit more scrupulous since that wacky Colonel Russell Williams affair blackened the reputation of our Armed Forces.
No sex while on a mission….now that’s not good for recruitment….What do you think Canada? You can post your comments below.
