Sexual Harrassment Involving RCMP officer
Aug. 29: The RCMP issued an apology for the actions of a top RCMP officer. Three workers had filed 11 complaints again the officer, six of which the RCMP acknowledged were valid. The officer called workers various names and, on one occasion, made a masturbatory gesture with his hand at one worker. In addition, the officer was secretly dating a city manager, creating a conflict of interest. The RCMP says that it will take disciplinary action against the officer.
