Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan speaks with Peter Van Dusen about his announcement of the launch of an independent review into sexual misconduct in the military. The review, which will be led by former Supreme Court justice Louise Arbour, will examine policies and culture within the military.

The federal government’s announcement comes nearly three months after allegations were made against Gen. Jonathan Vance and Adm. Art McDonald. Sajjan has been under fire for his handling of the allegations. The minister says that this review will look deeper into the structures that are needed to support survivors of sexual misconduct.
