RRC student sues school after suffering attack at work placement

August 4, 2016

The Red River College student who was assaulted during a work placement is seeking damages from RRC and the Behavioural Health Foundation, claiming that both parties acted negligently by leaving her alone with dangerous offenders. Jackie Healey is seeking general damages, “punitive, exemplary and aggravated damages,” legal fees and interest, and “other relief as counsel may advise.” RRC is conducting its own investigation into the circumstances leading up to the attack and its work placement policies and procedures. The investigation is expected to be completed before the start of the new academic year. Winnipeg Free Press | CBC
