Admiral Mark Norman Legal Defence

$163,820 of $200,000 goal

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Funds raised will be withdrawn directly by VAdm Norman and his legal team to an account established by him.

Hi folks - it’s taken awhile, but we have now reached $150,000! That is a great deal of money but it’s not close to what VAdm Norman’s legal bills will be when he eventually prevails in this case! I’m sharing with many folks who have already donated so I’m asking everyone. Share this with your friends and ask them to share it with their friends. Let’s get the word out and keep those donations coming. This money is making a tangible and real difference!

Hi everyone

I would like to provide the following statement from VAdm Norman.

Dear Friends,

As I said to reporters Tuesday after my most recent court appearance, I’m truly grateful for your generosity. You have no idea how much your kindness has meant to my family and me.

Over the past seven months your contributions to Lee’s GOFUNDME page, coupled with some private support have allowed me to maintain sufficient “fuel and ammunition” stocks to get us to this important point in the process. Sadly, we still have a long and difficult battle ahead of us. The demands of next 12 months will increase significantly. As in any military operation, the hard work happens long before the first shot is fired. This, sadly, will mean that the next several months leading up to the trial will require significantly more “fuel and ammunition” than is currently available.

I thank you all, and especially Lee for his spontaneous decision to start this initiative. You have all already given more than I ever imagined. We need to convince others to join the team - “We Fight As One”.

Yours Aye,

Mark

Hi Everyone,
I know I haven't provided an update for a while - I've been away on holidays. So, therefore, an update is due to all our wonderful supporters. I talked with VAdm Norman yesterday. His lawyers have ben working with the Crown to try and nail down a trial date and judge. VAdm Norman will next appear in Court on 4 September. Unfortunately, it could be as much as a year for the trail date to actually occur. That is going to be a very long wait for VAdm Norman. However, on the good side, that gives us lots of time to keep building this Defence Fund to help VAdm Norman defend himself against the unlimited resources of the Federal Government. So, I am asking all our supporters - please keep sharing the news of this campaign so we can keep building up the Defence Fund. A legal defence for a case like this one could easily cost up to half a million dollars! So, help us get to our goal of $200,000. That is the least we can do. Keep sharing, and keep bringing in those donations! Thanks again to all our supporters.

Good Day Folks - VAdm Norman had a bad day today. Today, he found out he will be formally replaced as the VCDS. This is a blow to an honourable man who has served his country, and who has been convicted of no crime. Help him defend himself. Share with your friends and lets get this campaign to our goal of $200,000! https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/vice-admiral-norman-removed-1.4725019?cmp=rss
