Royal Military College facing another sexual assault allegation

SUMMARY: The military police are investigating an incident of sexual assault that occurred on May 13th after a third party complainant brought it to their attention. Two other cadets face court martial on other sexual assault claims. In once case, Officer Cadet J.C. Scott cadet was found guilty of the lesser offence of assault against two female cadets. The timing of these cases is difficult for the college following shocking results of an external review of sexual misconduct in the military. The Deschamps Report claimed that the misogynistic and sexualised culture in the Canadian Forces allows harassment and abuse to be overlooked, underreported and poorly understood.
