Nearly 10 months since Toronto authorities Supt. Ron Taverner suffered a concussion that prevented him using the witness stand, the high-profile intimate harassment situation of their colleague is currently planned to start shutting submissions next week — without ever hearing through the officer that is high-ranking.
Taverner, an in depth buddy of Premier Doug Ford, ended up being the last witness in the much-delayed Ontario Human Rights Tribunal situation of Const. Heather McWilliam, whom alleges she ended up being for a long time the topic of intimate humiliation and harassment by supervising officers at 23 Division, the north Etobicoke detachment led by Taverner.
Taverner “was planning to be considered a key witness, ” said Kate Hughes, McWilliam’s attorney. Although he could be perhaps maybe maybe not known as in McWilliam’s 2014 problem, Hughes alleged inside her opening address that Taverner attempted to dissuade McWilliam from sounding the security in regards to a manager who made intimately suggestive reviews, pointing to a poster in their workplace having said that: “loose lips sink vessels. ”
The allegations haven’t been proven during the tribunal.
However the long-running situation has been stalled since Taverner suffered just exactly what their physician known as a “moderate to severe” concussion seven days before he had been due to testify final July.
