What’s Current: Two women file lawsuit against Waterloo police claiming sexual assault and harassment

“Policing is a very sexualized environment”: Two women file a $167m class action lawsuit against the Waterloo Police for systemic sexual harassment and abuse by male colleagues and superiors. Constable Angelina Rivers told CBC News:

    So boys can now take over girls sports due to their identity preference? Maybe I’ll just identify as well if Im diagnosed with cancer, that will sort it. This is Alice down the rabbit hole of male lies about reality x 100000000.
