Honoured to be appointed Vice Chief of the Defence Staff. Thank you to the @CDS_Canada_CEMD for his confidence in me. I leave the CA in the very capable hands of LGen Eyre and look forward to supporting the Chief of the Defence Staff and Deputy Minister in this new role.

Lanthier will make an excellent VCDS, appreciating greatly the details and nuances of the CAF’s interaction with the Department and the GoC writ large. The Army is incredibly fortunate to have Eyre as its senior leader - he is professional and incredibly capable. I hope he is allowed to remain engaged in the work he was tasked to accomplish in Korea.

I've had the privilege and pleasure of meeting him once;  last fall while deployed on PROJECTION, he was in our location and came to speak to our Det.  Very personable, struck me as exceptionally composed and intelligent and was very to the point on some good questions he was asked.
Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.

Having worked closely with LGen Eyre on a handful of files, I will say that the Army's gain is CMP's loss.  An intelligent, capable, compassionate leader, with a wonderful sense of humour.

And the second most famous person to come from Wadena, SK.

Was it not LGen Eyre (as the CMP) that took the reigns on the BGRS card nonsense from last APS, communicated quickly and effectively to those affected and fixed the problem ASAP (faster than I've ever seen any administrative issue fixed in the CF)?

That was (then) MGen Eyre, as assistant CMP, on behalf of LGen Lamarre who was CMP at the time.

Not to have away from the discussion on an excellent leader, but we the CAF brought the whole card fiasco onto ourselves.  That is got fixed quickly is a testament to the fine LGen.
