OTTAWA — RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki is dismissing the idea of a special prosecutor to look into numerous claims that women in the national police force were assaulted by colleagues.

Lucki is telling a House of Commons committee this evening that the details were provided in confidence to former Supreme Court justice Michel Bastarache, who wrote an independent report on harassment of women in the RCMP.

As a result, Lucki says, it is up to individual women to come forward to police to seek a criminal investigation.

In his report released in November, Bastarache said fundamental change is needed to rid the RCMP of a toxic culture that tolerates hateful and homophobic attitudes. 

Bastarache was the independent assessor who oversaw the provision of millions of dollars in compensation to 2,304 women involved in a class-action settlement covering several decades.

He said a shocking level of violence was reported by claimants, including over 130 penetrative sexual assaults.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 2, 2021.

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
