Minister under fire over handling of RCMP harassment amid $1.1B lawsuit

  Minister under fire over handling of RCMP harassment amid $1.1B lawsuit Canada's Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale is facing renewed criticism over his handling of harassment and bullying inside the RCMP, in the wake of a new $1.1-billion class action lawsuit launched against the force. "He's been the public safety minister [for years] and quite frankly done nothing," says Darryl Davies, a criminology professor at Carleton University. Davies, who spent more than two decades working in the federal justice system and now teaches courses on policing in the 21st century, says he believes Canada needs to hold a public inquiry into harassment and systemic problems inside the RCMP.

A judge has certified a class-action lawsuit against the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and a photographer accused of taking intimate photos of students.

The recent decision by an Ontario Superior Court justice allows the lawsuit filed by lead plaintiff Sarah Doucet to proceed.

Doucet alleges photographer Bruce Monk pressured her into letting him take semi-nude photos of her as a teenager and then distributed them — allegations both he and the ballet deny.

Lawyer Margaret Waddell says about 60 people have been identified so far as potential class-action members.
