'Threats' prompt removal of crowdfunding page for Toronto cop alleging harassment, lawyer says

The lawyer for a female Toronto police officer alleging she was sexually harassed on the job is urging the force’s civilian police board to intervene, claiming his client had to delete a crowdfunding website after being threatened with professional consequences.

In a letter sent to the Toronto police board this week, Barry Swadron asks chair Andy Pringle and board members to “investigate the source of the threats” allegedly made to his client, Sgt. Jessica McInnis, that she may face a misconduct charge under Ontario’s Police Services Act if she didn’t take down her “GoFundMe” page.

The crowdfunding page was established by a friend of McInnis last week to help cover the legal costs of her ongoing human rights complaint alleging sexual harassment and a “poisoned, sexist” work environment within the Toronto Police Service.
