Which victim group will triumph in Toronto Police Services ‘culture of sexism’ scandal?

Veteran female officer alleges police ‘culture of sexism’ in human rights complaint

Sexually explicit text messages and photos. Degrading remarks made in front of other officers. A “poisoned, sexist workplace environment.”

A female sergeant with nearly 20 years on the force is coming forward with claims of sexual harassment and discrimination within the Toronto Police Service, allegations detailed in a recent complaint filed to the Human Rights Tribunal on Ontario.

Sgt. Jessica McInnis, a 43-year-old officer who has earned accolades since joining the Toronto Police Service in 1998, alleges she was subjected to a “steady barrage of unsolicited sexist, sexual, harassing and obscene messages” by Det. Mark Morris, her former police partner and co-leader of their Criminal Investigations Bureau (CIB) team, at downtown’s 14 Division.

A White Female versus a Black Male? The Human Rights Commission of Ontario is a known nut house which gives a slight edge to the defendant regardless of the weight of alleged evidence.
