COLD LAKE, Alta. — Alberta’s busking soldier was officially sentenced on Jan. 31 for his protest of rising rent costs on 4 Wing Cold Lake.

Cpl. Darenn Tremblay was assigned 10 days’ confinement to barracks following his summary trial in front of several dozen of his peers.

After presiding officer Lt-Col Derek Gowanlock read the accusing evidence, Tremblay admitted responsibility.

The 10-day confinement, which will start immediately, means Tremblay must stay within the 4 Wing base boundaries. He will continue his daily operations at engine bay at 1 Air Maintenance Squadron.

The 25-year-old was accused of attempting to influence public policy by communicating criticism of the Canadian Armed Forces’ compensation and benefits policy to the prejudice of good order and discipline on Jan. 9, 2014 on a sidewalk in Cold Lake, Alta.
