Michael Rouleau, Canadian Special Forces Commander, Fined $2,000 After Guilty Plea | HuffingtonPost

Canada’s top special forces soldier has been fined $2,000 after accidentally firing his weapon near another military officer last year.

A military judge handed down the punishment after Maj.-Gen. Mike Rouleau pleaded guilty at a court martial on Tuesday to one count of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline.

The case stemmed from an incident in northern Iraq last December, where 170 Canadian special forces are training Kurdish forces in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
