Canadaland interviews Emma Phillips about the Canadian Armed Forces’ failure to stop sexual misconduct in its ranks

The latest episode of Canadaland: The Podcast looks into the problem of sexual assault and harassment in Canada’s military:

In 1998, several women came forward to Maclean’s magazine about their experiences being raped or sexually harassed in the military. Many years and many victims later, there was finally an investigation which lead to the creation of Operation Honour, which was supposed to address problem. But it didn’t. Now many members of the Canadian military have come forward yet again, and the government has pledged to do another investigation. Reporter Cherise Seucharan looks into why this has been such a problem, and if it will be different this time.
