CSE Commissioner died 17 July

CSE Commissioner Charles Gonthier died of cancer on July 17th. R.I.P. (Statement by Defence Minister Peter MacKay here.) No word yet on his replacement.

The Commissioner's annual report, completed in June, was tabled by MacKay five days later, on 22 July. Among other points, the report indicates that the dispute between the Commissioner and CSE/Justice Department over interpretation of the law pertaining to the legality of some of CSE's activities still hasn't been resolved. How many Commissioners will it take?

(HT to an anonymous reader for informing me of Gonthier's death.)
