A female firefighter in Toronto is coming forward with allegations of years of harassment and discrimination while she worked as a firefighter for Toronto Fire Services.
Jamie Wilson says she was punched at work by a male colleague on multiple occasions. Wilson became a firefighter in 2006. She said the harassment went on for nearly 10 years. When she complained of harassment in 2008, she says she was moved to another fire hall.
“Even when I passed the three-year mark, I kept thinking it would get better,” Wilson told the fifth estate’s Mark Kelley. “I made it up to seven years and it never really did.”
She joined the Roy Green Show last week to discuss the incidents that occured, and what progress has been made for her case…
Toronto Firefighters Association President, Frank Ramagnano, contacted us about Jamie Wilson’s on-air statements. Ramagnano sent a very detailed description of what he argues the Association did and in fact, is doing, to represent Jamie Wilson fairly, and appropriately. Jamie has seen Ramagnano’s email and challenges him with a new reply to the Roy Green Show.
