Conway Files Judicial Review Application on Behalf of Major-General Dany Fortin

News Item

Today, Conway Baxter Wilson LLP/s.r.l. filed a Notice of Application for Judicial Review in the Federal Court of Canada on behalf of Major-General Dany Fortin. The Notice of Application relates to the decision to terminate and not reassign Major-General Fortin from his secondment at the Public Health Agency of Canada where he was serving as Vice President of Logistics and Operations for the COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Task Force.

The Notice of Application is premised on three main issues: (1) the decision was unreasonable because it was not justified, transparent or intelligible; (2) in making the decision, the decision-makers denied Major-General Fortin the requisite level of procedural fairness; and (3) there was improper political interference in the military chain of command by the Minister of National Defence, the Minister of Health, the Clerk of the Privy Council and the Prime Minister of Canada.

The Notice of Application can be found here.
