A few little bits of news from the last week...
Bobbo is hoping with the upcoming away round games everyone will forget about the 35th minute walkout and things will go back to normal where he and the clowns can do anything they want.
This one is a beauty, the Ombudsman they hired back in 2008 to investigate the issues had a brother who worked at the same brokerages as Bob Birarda's brother. This also happened to be the same brokerage that Bob Lenarduzzi used and got early tips on stocks....
You can't make this sh$t up....

Yup. I suspect a lot had to do with the girls just not having the fight in them. You can dial up the energy for a short term battle, but to keep it up long term, way more trying. Nobody wants that. The Caps just waited them out. Shame, I feel heads need to roll.

I thought the whitecaps had a sit down with Ciara, and she was satisfied with the outcome which included hiring a 3rd party specialist on creating safe sport environments to analyze what happened 10 years ago and help get things organized better in the future?

Bobbo and his broom strike again... Typical sweep it under the rug. Was told from a very good source they were just trying to get to the break in their schedule and were hoping it would die down. I can say I have not spent a dime on them for two years and will not do so until Bobbie and his circus are out.

I was still hoping this would lead to Bobby getting the ax. The fact the top three HO people survived this is diabolical.

That is one half of this conversation. The other is what happened with BB specifically. So far there have been no allegations that would rise to the level of criminal prosecution. BB was allegedly inappropriate with his remarks, there was some alleged inappropriate touching, alleged abuse of power. Maybe @mtkb can help me out here. As far as I can find creepy/lewd/inappropriate comments are not a crime in and of themselves. They go against most workplace policies, etc. and can and should cost people their jobs, but they are not indictable. Inappropriate touching and abuse of power, especially when combined, are a crime.

See s. 153 of the Criminal Code:

The problem here is that the only account reaching this standard would be him allegedly touching the girls thigh. The problem is proving that this occurred, as the code states, "for a sexual purpose." That may seem straight forward enough (ie what other purpose could it have been for?) but that will need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law and that is likely not as straight forward.
Sorry for the delayed response. Depending on the ages of the girls, yeah, it would be s.153 of the Code. if you look at 1.2 (d) I think it is, it references the degree of control exerted. That's where he'd be in particular trouble.

"For a sexual purpose" is less fruitful an area to make hay for defense counsel than you'd think. Unless he's part coach part trainer, I can't think of a reason he'd have for massaging female body parts. Inferences can certainly be drawn.

Anyway, I don't know that they're getting away with sweeping this under the rug. The background of the investigator is one of a complete believer in the #metoo, SJW causes... if she's obstructed she'll likely cry like a stuck pig, and if she's not she'll likely produce a blistering report... of course, if she doesn't find anything of much concern, that would be fairly telling as well...
