Perhaps the most remarkable part of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman’s more than two year legal ordeal was the way he carried himself at the Wednesday afternoon press conference.
Fully composed. No anger. Little emotion. A deliberate attempt to avoid anything resembling partisan remarks. This is a man who appears to be the definition of dignity and integrity. And yet he is also the man who Ottawa messed with for two whole years, charging him with breach of trust – which, if convicted, could mean incarceration – and then suddenly staying the charge on Wednesday morning.
