McGill janitor dismissed after allegedly spying on students

July 5, 2021
CTV News reports that a janitor working at McGill University has been fired after reportedly spying on students in the bathroom. The janitor was dismissed after a student shot a video of a man crouching to look under a bathroom stall door. CTV News says at least three other students have shared similar stories. Courtney Smith, a McGill post-doctoral graduate student, said that two similar incidents happened to her, and that “nothing happened” after reporting the issue in December. McGill indicated that it is not able to comment on the situation, but issued a statement that it “takes the issue of sexual harassment and assault very seriously and responds immediately when information is brought forward.” Montreal Gazette | West Island Blog | CTV News (QC)
