Looks like it might be more than just verbal abuse and possibly crossed over into unwanted physical contact as well.

So she offers a half-baked apology without admitting she's impossible to work with, but leaving the door open to pinning it on her assistant (who also resigned).
"Everyone has a right to a healthy and safe work environment, at all times and under all circumstances. It appears this was not always the case at the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General. Tensions have arisen at Rideau Hall over the past few months and for that, I am sorry."
'The past few months' would seem to indicate she doesn't acknowledge her actions over the past few years, which led to the report that came out 6 full months ago. The similar circumstances that led to her leaving her last 2 jobs should have indeed got her removed from consideration for the GG position at the short-list stage. Now, even if Trudeau makes at least some token effort at apology for picking her, the opposition will make hay out of it. Damage to the government is limited by other pressing business like the pandemic and the economy, but any appointments Trudeau makes now will be scrutinized twice as hard. He should have gone and had a word with her when the allegations first came to light, and since HR swept it under the carpet initially, that department should have been reorganised as well. Too bad she gets the nice pension, but at least she's been publicly disgraced and won't be working for us anymore.

Liberals trying to cover something up over the sexual misconduct issues in the military?

https://nationalpost.com/news/politi...ary-misconduct


OTTAWA — A parliamentary committee is set to conclude its study into allegations of sexual misconduct in the Canadian military after a Liberal motion to do so passed.

Blocking witnesses looks bad. Their excuse that they're out of time;
"Vandenbeld said the committee has heard around 25 hours of witness testimony and is concerned that if final ones aren’t heard from this week, its recommendations won’t be ready before summer recess." is lame for a case at this senior level.
None of the other parties are going to let go of it and the news is ready and waiting.

25 hours of testimony is nothing really, and a silly excuse, and if this is an issue in the military it needs to be brought to light and rectified, not swept under the rug.

I don't think it can be swept under the rug. No matter what recommendations and punishments come out, some of the witnesses still want to be heard, despite what the committee says, and the media is tooled right up for this. They've just covered an inquiry into sexism in the RCMP so probably don't have to change any production details but location.

Disappointed in the Liberals - they abandoned the promise to scrap FPTP, they are pushing through bills nobody asked or voted for like C-10, and have done nothing to address house prices rising completely out of reach. But yep all the parties are pretty much pick which neoliberal poison you want. Even the NDP are barely centre-left these days.

I wonder if he's going to have to sack Harjit Singh Sajjan. He's been under a bit of a cloud, beginning with his embellished description of his role In Command and Control in Afghanistan and continuing through the seemingly endless sexual harassment problems in the armed forces culminating in top Generals playing golf with one of their peers after he came under investigation. He's the Minister, and his senior officers are embarrassing his boss and the CAF, and the buck has to stop somewhere. I think every party has to do damage control during their terms, but the RCMP problems and the Governor General falling from grace and now rapey Generals create a nasty pattern.

There certa9inly seems to be something rather rotten at the top of the Canadian Forces. Singh's failure to grip this and take action leads one to believe that he's part of the cultural problem (being a former military officer himself). Whether Trudeau will sack him is of course another matter. I doubt it. Poor optics.

I guess you're right, his bio still looks way too good to go under the bus for failing to stop it all, but as Minister he is supposed to stop it all. Degree of damage to the government could depend on what happens to those officers, but it's still one more fiasco. Trudeau refused to nominate Vance for NATO commander a year ago, so he retired in a huff after he and Trudeau had several confidential conversations, so I wonder if the inappropriate relationships that came out 6 months later were already known. If Sajjan was the one who told Trudeau last year and that was as soon as he knew, I don't suppose anything should happen to him.

A parliamentary committee has called for a freeze on all promotions and salary increases for the military’s top brass until they can be screened for past incidents of inappropriate behavior.
