Dear Mr. Daigle:

Thank you for your letter of May 28, 2010, requesting that the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces expedite the review of your special report entitled The Canadian Forces Grievance Process: Making it Right for Those Who Serve. Your concerns are duly noted.

As discussed in my April 15, 2010 letter on this matter, this is an important issue. Unfortunately it is too early at this stage for me to provide you with any substantive comments; however, I remain committed to providing you with a detailed response as soon as possible.

I very much appreciate the work that you and your office do on behalf of our service members.
