Military suicides are a matter that should be discussed in public. There is no legitimate security reason to keep them secret.
OTTAWA – The Harper government was under mounting pressure on Friday to release the uncensored version of an internal Defence Department report on the suicide of Cpl. Stuart Langridge and to say how it will overhaul the tarnished military police branch.
Both the political opposition and the family of Cpl. Stuart Langridge say stonewalling by Defence is unacceptable.
In an interview with Global News, Sheila Fynes, the soldier’s mother, described reading the report that blames her divorce for her son’s suicide
“I guess my question is how low can you go, and each day it’s another whole level that’s inflicted upon us,” she said.
Fynes said she wants Defence Minister Jason Kenney to force the military to act.
“We look forward to meeting with Mr. Kenney. I hope it’s sooner rather than later,” she said.
