This last year has seen a number of female Royal Canadian Mounted Police file sexual harassment lawsuits.  They claim that their complaints had been ignored or covered up.


To its (belated) credit, the Mounties are promising to  “stamp out sexual harassment and bullying:"


"Harassment has no place in the RCMP.  We recognize it may be impossible to prevent entirely, but we will implement a zero tolerance approach.  … The RCMP stands little to gain by denying the obvious – and it will not do so. … As long as these cases dominate the public discourse they will undermine public confidence in our institution and consume effort. Where wrong has been committed, it will be made right."
