Admiral Mark Norman Legal Defence

$53,402 of $65,000 goal

Raised by 477 people in 28 days
Created January 22, 2018
Admiral Norman is in the fight of his life; accused of serious wrongdoing by the Government of Canada. Help him in this unequal fight for his reputation and honour. Help him have the means to mount a legal defence against his accusers. Let’s see the Government of Canada’s evidence in a court of law.

Notwithstanding his suspension, Vice-Admiral Norman is still a an official of the Government of Canada so he must ensure that he does not violate the terms of Section 121 of the Criminal Code or Section 117 of the National Defence Act. These provisions explicitly prohibit him from accepting any form of financial compensation (gifts, loans or similar) from anyone having “(financial) dealings with the government”. This means, for example, that he cannot accept support from people who are employees of companies with contracts, or that might be seeking contracts, with the government. This could also include organizations that receive grants or donations from the government. If you want to donate and are in doubt as to whether you fall into this category, please seek clarification from your employer before you contribute to the fund. Thank You.

I was a colleague of VAdm Norman in the Canadian Forces.  We served together in National Defence Headquarters; he as the Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy, and me as the Director of Strategic Readiness with the Strategic Joint Staff.  

Funds raised will be withdrawn directly by VAdm Norman and his legal team to an account established by him.

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to the generosity of over 450 people, we have achieved the goal I set when we started this campaign! Well done everyone! I would like to thank you all for your generosity and support. I can say with confidence that Vice Admiral Norman is overwhelmed with the support that he has received. When I started the campaign, the first decision I had to make was where to set the goal. I decided on $50, 000 because I knew a proper legal defence could be very expensive. At this same time, I did not want to be unrealistic either. Given the support that the campaign has received, I have decided to increase our goal to $65,000 because we still have many generous people trying to help. So everyone, thanks for your support and generosity, and if you know someone who has yet to donate, and they wish to, please point them to this page.
