Survey finds minimal progress in militarys fight against sexual misconduct

first_imgOTTAWA — A new Statistics Canada survey of military personnel suggests the Canadian Forces has made minimal progress in eradicating serious sexual misconduct from the ranks despite years of effort.According to results released this morning, 1.6 per cent of regular-force members — or about 900 full-time military personnel — reported being the victim of a sexual assault over the previous 12 months.The rate among reservists was even higher, with 2.2 per cent — or about 300 part-time military personnel — reporting they were the victim of a sexual assault, which includes sexual attacks, unwanted sexual touching or sexual activity without consent.The numbers represent only a slight improvement from a similar survey conducted by Statistics Canada two years earlier, raising questions about the effectiveness of the military’s efforts to eliminate such behaviour.In a statement, the military’s second-in-command, Lt.-Gen. Paul Wynnyk, says the number of military personnel who continue to be affected by sexual misconduct is “completely unacceptable.”At the same time, Wynnyk says it is encouraging the vast majority of service members see such actions as unacceptable and have confidence in the military’s ability to deal with reports of misbehaviour.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

He pleaded guilty to one count of making a criminal threat.Matlak will be placed on five years probation and sentenced to a year in custody, which he will be able to serve at the treatment facility. Shamoon told Matlak to become stable on his medications before he is sentenced. Shamoon told Matlak that everyone is worried about him. “Nobody wins if you go to prison,” Shamoon said. Shamoon allowed Matlak’s mother to give him a hug after the plea. Classmates of Matlak who graduated in 2015 reported the threats to law enforcement on May 30, leading to his arrest.Matlak bailed out of jail and voluntarily checked himself in to a lockdown mental health facility, defense attorney Brian Watkins said. Watkins said Matlak didn’t threaten anyone directly, but three former classmates read his posts on Instagram and felt threatened by them.“I hate all of you,” Matlak wrote in one post, according to Deputy District Attorney Matthew Greco. “Get the (expletive) out of San Diego 2K18 before I find u,” Matlak wrote in another post. He also posted a photo of an AR-15 rifle, Greco said.RELATED STORY: Man accused or threatening Torrey Pines HS to remain in hospital Former Torrey Pines High student pleads guilty to making threats Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Gregory Matlak, Torrey Pines HS KUSI Newsroom FacebookTwitter July 11, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, Posted: July 11, 2018 Updated: 7:37 AMlast_img read more
