Afterglowmeshi...

..the nagging feeling that your "victory" might not be all that it could be...

When I went to the CBC for help, what I received in return was a directive that yes, he could do this, and yes, it was my job to let him. The relentless message to me, from my celebrity boss and from the national institution we worked for was that his whims were more important than my humanity or my dignity. So I came to accept this. I came to believe it was his right.

But when I spoke to the police at the end of 2014, and detailed my experiences with Mr. Ghomeshi, they confirmed that what he did to me was, in fact, sexual assault.

Thanks Pierre, for putting everything from sexual harassment to rape under the "sexual assault" charge in the Criminal Code. There should be degrees, just as with physical assault and murder.

pierre was just streamlining the justice system... apparently the first 28 criminal complaints are deductible.

To Ghomeshi's former producer's lawsuit dare outside Old City Hall court: wasn't Brian Lilley investigating "a culture of oppressive cisgendered patriarchal misogyny" (sexual harassment) at the CBC before any financial or assault scandal broke?
