For those who haven’t followed this, female class action lawsuit is being settled, North of $100M of taxpayers dollars has been earmarked for this. The disturbing issue with this is that all offending superiors won’t have to be named or answer for their abuses in court. This means some of these really bad apples could collect a full pension and enjoy a nice salary while taxpayers pay, yet again for the RCMP abuses.
I have noticed a major difference between U.S and Canadian police abuses, in the U.S it is generally split second decisions where there is danger of harm, in Canada it is methodical, abusive, power driven that costs Canadians a great deal of money. Often the abuses are within the agencies themselves, but most are against Canadians, contrary to our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Who knows how much these plantiffs may receive, but if it is anything like the lawsuit females launched, this is going to hurt Canadas reputation and pocketbook yet again.
