Another B.C. Mountie has come forward with damaging allegations against the national police force. Cpl. Elisabeth Couture has filed a lawsuit against her superiors, complaining harassment pushed her to take stress leave.
In court documents filed Dec. 1, Couture alleges the trouble started when she was promoted to the RCMP’s Drugs and Organized Crime Awareness Service in 2009. The unit consists of a team of corporals stationed throughout B.C. who are responsible for coordinating and training police officers in dealing with drugs and organized crime.
