Things did not go well last month for a certain member of the RCMP. Officer Merrifield alleged that his bosses on the force harassed him as payback because he ran (unsuccessfully) for a political party. He said, among other things, that he was transferred around and investigated for alleged petty offences. He sued for workplace harassment and was awarded $100,000. Not bad. But last month the Court of Appeal tossed his claim, saying that Ontario does not recognize a lawsuit based solely on harassment.
