Jian Ghomeshi, the CBC broadcaster who was fired after he was accused of sexual assault, leading to a vomitous flood of revelations about his behavior, is the subject of a an investigation and report on his behavior and the actions of CBC. Would you believe the CBC was a hostile work environment for women that condoned Ghomeshi’s activities?
Janice Rubin, the Toronto employment lawyer who led the investigation, writes in the report that CBC management “failed to take steps required of it in accordance with its own policies to ensure that the workplace was free from disrespectful and abusive conduct." The report details that in at least three documented instances, managers failed to investigate sexual assault allegations leveled against Ghomeshi, with CBC brass apparently "all too ready to believe his version of the truth."
The report also states that in the months following Ghomeshi’s firing from the radio network, "several" women have come forward to accuse at least four other people of sexual misconduct—one off-air employee was even fired.
Sounds to me like a cesspool needs draining.
