If this General is acquitted he’ll probably have to resign as his troops won’t be able to stand in formation without a bit o’ laughter. The press release reads (here):
Standing Court Martial proceedings will take place on May 25, 2010, at the Asticou Centre in Gatineau, Québec, for Brigadier-General Daniel Menard, Commander Joint Task Force Afghanistan, in relation to an incident on March 25, 2010, when his personal weapon discharged.
Brig.-Gen. Menard is charged with one count of Neglect to the Prejudice of Good Order and Discipline contrary to section 129 of the National Defence Act.
Funny for us, probably not so much for the BGen. Charge sheet here.
