Inside the mysterious removal of the Canadian military’s second-in-command

On the morning of Monday, Jan. 9, four unmarked police cars arrived at Vice-Admiral Mark Norman’s modest home in the Ottawa suburb of Orléans.

Norman, the second-highest-ranking officer in the Canadian military, was standing in the driveway, about to take his wife to work. The plainclothes RCMP officers asked Norman to go back into the house, and for the next five to six hours they interrogated the vice-admiral, seizing his computers and cellphones.
