The RCAF have been made aware that an allegation of sexual misconduct has been made against a member of 431 Squadron, and that the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service is investigating.
The RCAF takes all allegations of this nature seriously and is cooperating with investigators fully. The privacy and well-being of the Affected Person, also a member of the CAF, is of the utmost priority to us. Names and specific details will be withheld while this independent investigation takes place. The Affected Person and impacted CAF members are being provided care and support during this time.
While the investigation proceeds, the member facing allegations has been reassigned to non-operational duties at 15 Wing Moose Jaw. This measure does not imply any outcomes and is intended to enable a robust investigation. Procedural fairness is a priority and is respected throughout all Canadian Armed Forces investigations and administrative processes.
As a result of this investigation, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds will perform air displays as an eight-aircraft team for the foreseeable future
