OTTAWA — A military source says a female soldier first made an allegation that led to Canada’s top commander in Afghanistan being relieved of duty on Sunday

The unofficial source tells the Globe and Mail the soldier reported being in an intimate relationship with Brig.-Gen. Daniel Menard.

The information, which has not yet been proved or confirmed, was then relayed up the Canadian Forces chain of command.

The source says the woman who made the claim is a non-commissioned member of the Forces, meaning she’s not an officer but is an enlisted soldier.

The woman, according to the source, made the allegation about the relationship to an unidentified person on May 27 or 28.

Both Menard, who is married, and the female soldier have been sent back to Canada while military investigators probe the allegations. (Globe and Mail)
