Oh and I should add, the guy in the picture is Colonel Russel Williams, former base commander of Canadian Forces Base Trenton.
He was a very stellar example of what it takes to be a leader in the Canadian Armed Forces. Well that is until he murdered two women, one being a subordinate in the Canadian Armed Forces.
But more disturbing was his fetish for female underwear. He'd break into homes and steal women's underwear, and even take pictures of himself wearing it. Actually, 'woman' is probably the wrong word to use. 'Adolescent' would be the better word. And on top of that, he agreed to plead guilty to all 80 counts of break and enter and the two murder charges so long as the Crown didn't charge him for the collection of child pornography found on his computer.
From my experience growing up as a base brat in the Canadian Armed Forces all I can say is that we are very lucky that it was the Township of Tweed's police department that investigated the two murders and arrested Colonel Russel Williams. If the CFNIS / the Military Police had done the investigation the Colonel probably would have received a promotion, been placed in charge of all of the forces and the two murders would have been ruled accidental suicides.
