    You go for it, Kelly Donovan! Good for you! My best wishes to you for success in your endeavours. Sadly, the problems you point out are systemic throughout society today. Corruption is rampant!

    Thank you so much for standing up.

    Watching the first clip it jumps out at you when questions could be asked of Kelly everyone was silent. Nothing. 175 needs to be amended and probably will once this hits the end. This lady seems to have a good head on her shoulders and her patterns of action follow the proper path. The board seems to be in the crosshairs and appear to have brushed her off as a irrelevant snowflake. I wish she would run for mayor. The second clip should be put on CBC. Not all the cops are bad and are good people. This is why a purging must happen once truth becomes public knowledge after the case. This woman could be woman of the year. A bird told me other police forces are crapping their pants fearing a carryover. Also notice how our Premier has been silent. All the best. K.D.

    Kelly tell us how the public can help in your endeavour…We need to be proactive and we need this exposed for what it truly is…BULLYING, HARASSMENT, SEXUAL PREDITORS..Let’s get on the bandwagon and support…Do we need to protest?? Do we need to write letters?? Give us guidance Kelly

    K.D. – do you know that 2 of the police officers named (now retired) are on Cambridge Council? Should they not be asked to leave this position or remove themselves until this case is settled.
    The one Councillor has always had too much to say on the Radio & Paper. He has insulted a FEMALE speaker at a Council meeting who asked for an apology & did not receive it. This FEMALE put in a complaint to the Integrity Comm. – was turned down. But cost Taxpayers over $7,000. Just because HE REFUSED TO APOLOGIZE. SHE put in a 2nd complaint – was turned down. SHE also asked for Security & was REFUSED. We were with her & this said Councillor followed us out after the night SHE spoke which had never happened before. The Mayor allowed HIM to rant. He did not ask questions – just ranted & waved papers at the FEMALE SPEAKER. Until another Councillor asked the Mayor to stop this rant!!!
    So apparently he (the named retired officer) is still carrying on his previous actions against females.
    I know this needs to be proven, but we feel he & the other named officer need to remove themselves from Council & any further possible election runs for 2018, until this Kelly Donovan suit is settled.
    Cambridge Taxpayers – voice your opinion on this situation at hand.

    The behaviour you’ve just described is serious. In conjunction with their naming in either or both of the lawsuit and the Affidavits, I agree with your conclusion regarding these two Cambridge councillors.

      As well as the lawyer for the police service, Superintendent… Deputy Minister at Queen’s Park…. All should be properly investigated, and not in a position to oversee female employees until that happens. I agree 100%. And the investigation cannot be done by other male police officers, or the systemic issues just perpetuate.
