Actresses accusing Albert Schultz of sexual misconduct had to ‘suffer in silence,’ lawyer says

Four actresses who have filed civil lawsuits against the Soulpepper Theatre Company and artistic director Albert Schultz were made to feel they had to “suffer in silence” to succeed, one of their lawyers said during a morning news conference Thursday.

Patricia Fagan, Hannah Miller, Kristin Booth and Diana Bentley have alleged in separate lawsuits against Schultz and the company that they experienced unwanted groping, harassment and sexual remarks in the workplace from 2000 to 2013. None of the allegations have been proven in court, and Schultz issued a statement Wednesday saying he plans to defend himself against them.

It pays to be a sex predator in Canada, like Ghomeshi this guy got all kinds of government money to fund his projects not to mention his past employment and other ties to the CBC.
