Col. Michel Drapeau, OMM, CD, LL.L., LL.B. (Ottawa), Bar of Ontario, ”Activist Ottawa lawyer targeted by military over positive review of his book,” by David Pugliese, Ottawa Citizen, April 23, 2014.

His book, “Military Justice in Action,” co-authored by retired federal judge Gilles Letourneau, had the Department of National Defence scrambling to their own ‘defence’.

He is currently in private practice in military law, access to information and privacy law, human rights law, employment law as well as civil litigation.
