Heather Gillis, a reporter with NTV in Newfoundland, suffered the dreaded "F her right in the P (FHRITP) experience.
According to a CBC report, Gillis tracked down the cad who uttered the expletive and he was criminally charged under the Criminal Code for causing a disturbance.
But recently, Judge Colin Flynn, referring to a Supreme Court of Canada decision, decided the alleged offence didn’t meet the legal requirements.
Alas, so much for Heather Gillis’ claim that the FHRITP outburst made for sexual harassment and a workplace safety issue.
These interruptions suck for journalists, but having your feelings hurt doesn’t qualify as sexual harassment, and to call this a safety issue is laughable.
In light of the judge’s decision, some are calling for new laws to be introduced to ban such lewd outbursts, but isn’t the risk of being “outed” as a vulgar dimwit enough of a penalty?
I’ll bet given the unwanted attention these cads receive, they undoubtedly wish they’d kept their mouths zipped!
