A court-martial began Monday for an Edmonton reservist accused of making racist remarks, as well as observing fellow reservists while they showered.
Cpl. Gordan Reid, a combat engineer, is charged with four counts under the National Defense Act: two counts of cruel or shameful conduct and one of each of subordinate abuse, and conduct of prejudice to good order and discipline.
The charges follow a series of three alleged incidents at the Debney Armory in Edmonton that took place in June 2019.
Reid is accused of observing a fellow reservist in the shower and later ordering a reservist to shower with him.
He is also accused of making racist remarks about a native Canadian to a native reservist in a separate incident.
Reid pleaded not guilty to all four charges on Monday.
The court-martial proceedings were scheduled for two weeks.
