    The second-in-command of the Canadian military is set to appear in person at the Ottawa courthouse Tuesday morning with his lawyer, Marie Henein, in a controversial case that has sent shock waves through the military and defence community over the past year.
   Vice-Adm. Mark Norman is charged with breach of trust and is alleged to have leaked the news in late 2015 that the Liberal government was considering cancelling a significant shipbuilding project inked earlier that year by the Conservatives.
     The court appearance on Tuesday will be the first for Norman in what defence insiders have described repeatedly as a politically charged case targeting a senior member of the Canadian military with a reputation for calling out bureaucratic delays and partisan hand-wringing over naval procurement.
