OTTAWA — A Senate committee’s beleaguered investigation into the case of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman has been temporarily rescued with an extension until August. But it remains to be seen whether the committee will get the required permission from the Senate to hold more meetings, and if so, whether Norman himself is willing to testify. Back on May 28, the Senate defence committee voted to examine the circumstances around the abandoned prosecution of Norman and call key witnesses to testify. But she said she would provide the committee with an answer on Monday about whether Norman would agree to testify. Liberal Sen. Terry Mercer also notified the committee that he intends to call former Conservative ministers to testify about their role in the case.
