He comments regularly on historical questions, defence, and public affairs in the press and on radio and television; he provided the historical commentary on the CBC's coverage of the 50th and 60th anniversaries of D-Day (1994, 2004), V-E Day (1995), and V-J Day (1995); and he speaks frequently here and abroad. He has been a historical consultant on many films, most recently “Canada’s War” (Yap Films, 2004).

In 1995 he served as one of three commissioners on the Special Commission on the Restructuring of the Canadian Forces Reserves (chaired by the Rt. Hon. Brian Dickson, former Chief Justice of Canada), and in 1997, he advised the Minister of National Defence on the future of the Canadian Forces. He is a member of the Advisory Committee of the Dominion Institute, an adjunct fellow of the University of Calgary’s Centre for Military and Strategic Studies (1997- ), and Chair of the Council for Canadian Security in the 21st Century (2001-4).
