  Ottawa Citizen:  Chief of the Defence Staff Gen. Jon Vance has ordered the permanent removal of Vice Admiral Mark Norman from his job as vice chief of the defence staff.
   Norman was technically still vice chief even though Vance suspended him from that job in January 2017 after a series of allegations, still unproven, were made by the RCMP against the senior naval officer.
  The vice admiral has never been interviewed by the RCMP.
  Norman has requested financial assistance from a special government fund that covers legal fees for federal employees.
  But the Department of National Defence declined that request, claiming Norman has already been found guilty of disclosing confidential information.
  That determination of guilt was made by a small group of military officers and bureaucrats. They did not conduct any investigation and the DND has declined to say how this determination of guilt was arrived at.
