Second female Mountie slams RCMP with sexual harassment claims
Former Mountie Krista Carle says she was constantly sexually harassed by male colleagues during the 20 years she was on the force.
Carle, a former RCMP constable, is speaking out after Catherine Galliford, a former spokeswoman for the RCMP in B.C., said on Tuesday that she suffered sexual harassment from senior officers for years.
Carle said she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder in 2004 after being sexually harassed by colleagues for 19 years. She applied for medical discharge in 2009 due to stress.
“I got paranoid, I wasn’t sleeping properly, I lost a tremendous amount of weight,” she said on Wednesday. “I was not in a good place mentally, psychologically or spiritually.”
