Maj.-Gen. Dany Fortin loses first legal round in bid for reinstatement after removal from position

CA, 13 Oct 2021
A federal court has now refused to hear the case of Maj.-Gen. Dany Fortin, who is fighting to get his job back as head of logistics for Canada's COVID-19 vaccine roll-out.

Fortin was abruptly removed from the high-profile position in May, following an allegation of sexual misconduct against him dating back more than 30 years.

Mike Le Couteur looks at how Fortin lost the first round of the legal battle, and where it goes from here.
