Admiral Mark Norman Legal Defence

$293,766 of $500,000 goal

Raised by 2,246 people in 13 months
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.

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Funds raised will be withdrawn directly by VAdm Norman and his legal team to an account established by him.

Dear Friends/supporters,

Over the past few months Vice-Admiral Norman has been engaged in an intensive and demanding legal battle as he tries to access government documents that he and his lawyers argue are essential to his defence. This process has been difficult and frustrating as their efforts appear to have been thwarted by the government at nearly every opportunity. Without access to these documents Vice-Admiral Norman may not be able to properly defend himself. Beyond just the toll this must be taking on him and his family, this process has been very expensive and the funds we have raised to date have already been exhausted.

The next step in the process will be to make an application for a stay in the proceedings based on "abuse of process" motion that will be argued at the end of March. Just getting through that next motion will be an expensive undertaking; to say nothing of having to potentially support a 9 week trial later this year.

In recognition of the mounting financial challenges of funding his defence, I have decided to raise our goal to $500,000. That’s an ambitious goal, but Vice-Admiral Norman needs all the help we can give him. Let's all try and find at least one new new supporter so we can double our ranks - and our hopefully the funds - over the next couple of months!

Hi Everyone, well, we are closing in on $268,000 on our way to our next goal of $300,000. Lots of updates in the news last week about how difficult it is for the defence team defending VAdm Norman to just get the basic information he needs to defend himself. Your donations help in his defence, so please keep sharing so that the donations can continue. The more you know about this case, the murkier and and the more underhanded the whole situation seems. Help bring the light to the darkness.......

Hi Folks - once again, I have elected to raise our goal. From the beginning I always set the goal based on what we thought we could reasonably raise. As VAdm Norman’s storey becomes more well known an increasing number of Canadians are coming forward to support him. This support is very much needed - a legal defence is very expensive and VAdm Norman needs all the help he can get. So thanks everyone for the continuing support.

Hey folks - we are really close to getting this thing to a Quarter MILLION DOLLARS! If you have been watching the news VAdm Norman’s legal team have been fighting hard for him to get a fair trial. Let’s keep going and give him the means to pay for his legal defence. It’s expensive and he needs all the help he can get. Share his story with your friends!
