Dr. Greg Passey says force continues to deny harassment allegations of some of his patients.

A Vancouver psychiatrist says despite the RCMP’s public apology to hundreds of female staffers for decades of sexual harassment, the force is still denying some of his patients’ claims of abuse and sexual misconduct and trying to fire two of them.

Dr. Greg Passey, who specializes in treating first responders who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, says less than a month after the public apology in October, two senior Mounties paid him a visit to discuss his medical recommendation that the force must settle lawsuits with two of his patients before they can return to work.

Rather than settle, the RCMP sent the women their final dismissal papers last week.

“You have this big public apology and about a month later the abuse of power continues, the harassment continues,” Passey said.
