Trudeau on alleged rape, harassment at CSIS

Allegations of a toxic workplace culture, involving harassment and sexual assault at Canada’s spy agency are “devastating” and “absolutely unacceptable,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday.

His comments come after a Canadian Press investigation revealed four officers with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service raised concerns about the toxic culture within the British Columbia office.

One CSIS officer said she was raped nine times by a senior colleague while in surveillance vehicles, while another said she was sexually assaulted by the same man.

The women said they warned their bosses that the man needed to be kept away from young women.

Trudeau, who was in Ajax, Ont., for a separate announcement, said the allegations are of “deep, deep concern.” #shorts
