General Wayne Eyre has been officially appointed Canada's next chief of the defence staff.

He had been filling in for Admiral Art McDonald, who stepped down in August because of an investigation into alleged sexual misconduct.

No charges were laid by police and McDonald wanted to be reinstated as CDS.

Today, Defence Minister Anita Anand announced the permanent promotion for Eyre.

McDonald has been put on leave for now.
