"Deep flaws" withing RCMP, says retired Mountie

A retired police officer from Kamloops says there are deep flaws within the RCMP.

Rob Creaser is reponding to allegations of sexual harrassment by mountie Catherine Galliford. Galliford says she suffers from post traumatic stress disorder after years of sexual harrassment on the job.

Since Galliford came forward, more officers have come forward, saying they too were harassed.

The RCMP denies those allegations.  It says the force has zero tolerance when it comes to workplace harrassment.

Rob Creaser disagrees. He's the former Vice President of the BC Mounted Police Professional Association -- a body that's been fighting to unionize the RCMP.

Daybreak host Chris Walker spoke to him, from Kamloops.
