An inquiry into sexual misconduct in the Canadian Forces says there's a sexualized culture in the military that's hostile to women and conducive to harassment and assault. Former Supreme Court justice Marie Deschamps, who conducted the inquiry, says she is encouraged by the attitude of military leaders in recognizing that the culture needs to change. (Chief of Defence Staff General Tom Lawson says the military brass takes its responsibility to eradicate such a culture seriously. But he says all members of the military must help make the change. The study recommends, among other things, that the military better acknowledge the issue of inappropriate sexual conduct and put a strategy in place to change the culture.)
