HALIFAX — Vice-Admiral Mark Norman was acknowledged publicly by the chief of the defence staff during a navy ceremony today in Halifax.

Questions have swirled around the future of Norman, who has expressed a desire to return to duty after a breach-of-trust case was dropped last month against the former second-in-command of Canada's Armed Forces.

Norman was on hand in uniform for the colourful change of command ceremony Wednesday and was mentioned at the beginning of remarks made by defence chief Gen. Jonathan Vance.

Vance welcomed Norman, saying "great to have you here mate," adding "the family's all together again, it feels good," to warm applause.

Neither Norman nor Vance were made available to reporters following the ceremony at Her Majesty's Canadian Dockyard.

The two were together last month in what the military described as a "cordial" meeting, although there has been no word since on when Norman will return to duty, or in what role.

Command of the Royal Canadian Navy was passed Wednesday from Vice-Admiral Ron Lloyd to Vice-Admiral Art McDonald.
