In a written joint statement, the Defence Department and Canadian Armed Forces say acting defence chief Gen. Wayne Eyre decided to put off the change of command ceremony after being informed of the investigation.

In a separate statement, Cadieu says the allegations are false but that he understands the decision to delay his installation as army commander until the investigation is done.
