|Mr. John Hoyles, CEO
of the Canadian Bar Association (CBA)|
is congratulated by
Major General Blaise Bernard Cathcart, JAG,
on his appointment as
Honorary Colonel of the CF Legal Branch.
February 6, 2015. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) has accepted an appointment as Honorary Colonel of the Canadian Forces Legal Branch. As such he now has a privileged right of access to the JAG - and vice versa - as well as other senior officers of all services. It will be interesting to watch the CBA's advocacy efforts before the Canadian Parliament particularly on the issue of military justice reforms which are of importance to the legal profession as a whole.
