During the RCMP's own #MeToo reckoning, approximately 190 current and former RCMP employees — men and women in three provinces — say their employment-related medical exams crossed the line into sexual assault.
The exams were conducted by RCMP doctors from the 1980s to early 2000s.
But despite sworn statements from the complainants, Halifax Regional Police, Toronto Police Service and the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary — which investigated the claims — all arrived at the same conclusion. There were no charges against any of the three doctors.
Many of the complainants remain in the RCMP.
In Nova Scotia, the number of people who came forward was staggering. In all, 152 people filed complaints against a Halifax-area doctor alleging sexual abuse from 1981-2003. They nicknamed him Dr. Fingers.
