Women file suit alleging they were sexually assaulted by Newfoundland police officers
Seven women have filed a civil lawsuit alleging they were sexually assaulted by "various" on-duty officers with Newfoundland and Labrador's provincial police force between 2001 and 2017.
A statement of claim filed Sept. 9 with the province's Supreme Court names the provincial government, which is responsible for the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary as the sole defendant in the case.
The women allege in the statement of claim that they were kissed, touched or penetrated by Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officers without their consent after the officers had offered them rides home at night.
In one instance alleged to have occurred in 2001, a woman claims an unnamed officer drove her to a remote area and forced her to perform oral sex on him after she rebuffed his sexual advances and he suggested that he would leave her out there alone.
Retired Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Sgt. Robert Baldwin is the only officer named in the statement of claim, with allegations from two women ranging from unwanted kissing and touching to penetration, but his lawyer said in an email Monday that he denies all of the allegations.
None of the allegations in the suit have been proven in court, and Lynn Moore, the women's lawyer, said today that they are not pursuing criminal charges.

Tens of thousands of Maritime Electric customers are without power in P.E.I. as Fiona continues to pound Atlantic Canada, with wind gusts on the Island hitting 150 km/h and almost 100 mm of rain down.
A hurricane warning remains in place for all three counties in P.E.I. as well as wind and storm surge warnings, but Environment Canada lifted its rainfall warnings at about 1:30 p.m. AT.
Islanders are being urged to stay at home and off the roads as the situation with Fiona continues to make venturing outside extremely dangerous.
Charlottetown Police have been warning about the danger from flying objects and noting that many roads are blocked by fallen trees.

Kindred spirits, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but hurricane Fiona is hitting dear PEI and the Maritimes pretty hard. I noticed the L .M. Montgomery Literary Society posting photos of the damage on their facebook page. Here’s a link to more info. Please keep ‘the land of Anne’ and those who live there in your prayers tonight! <3

Environment commissioner warns Canada failing to protect commercially valuable fish
The federal government is biased against listing commercially valuable fish as species at risk and needing protection, environment commissioner Jerry DeMarco said in a new audit published Tuesday.
The audit of Canada's efforts to protect aquatic species at risk was one of six new environmental reports tabled in the House of Commons.
It found Fisheries and Oceans Canada was very slow to act when the national committee that is responsible for assessing whether species need protection says a particular aquatic creature or plant is in danger.

And when that assessment relates to a fish with significant commercial value, the department's default appears to be against listing the fish as needing special protection.
That includes the Newfoundland and Labrador population of Atlantic cod.
Overfishing led to a moratorium on commercial fishing of Newfoundland cod in 1992, and twice since then the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada assessed it as being "endangered," meaning it faces imminent danger of going extinct.
Once that assessment is made, Fisheries and Oceans Canada must review the assessment and decide whether to list the species for special protection under the Species at Risk Act. Listing the species in the act as endangered would prevent it from being killed, harmed, harassed or captured.
The first assessment on Newfoundland cod came in 2003, and it took three years for Fisheries and Oceans to review the finding. In 2006, the federal department decided against adding it to the Species at Risk Act list, and allowed some inshore fishing and Indigenous harvesting to continue.

In 2010, the committee assessed the Newfoundland cod as endangered a second time. Twelve years later, Fisheries and Oceans still has not finished a review to determine what to do with that assessment.
DeMarco's audit looked at nine fish, two mussels and a sea turtle that the endangered wildlife committee assessed as needing protection. Five of the fish were marine species with significant commercial value, and in all five of those cases, the department opted against listing the fish as a species at risk.
That includes Newfoundland cod, steelhead trout, the Okanagan population of chinook salmon, yellowmouth rockfish, and Atlantic bluefin tuna.
The other four fish, both mussels and the loggerhead sea turtle were deemed to have no significant commercial value, and all seven were recommended to be listed as species at risk by Fisheries and Oceans.
DeMarco also found it took the department far too long to conduct its own reviews.
He said Fisheries and Oceans hasn't finished its review for half the 230 aquatic species that the wildlife committee recommended for an at-risk designation since the Species at Risk Act took effect in 2004.
Furthermore, the department was found to have big gaps in what it knows about species that need protection, and not enough staff to enforce protections when they are put in place.
"A bias against protecting species of commercial value under the Species at Risk Act, significant delays in listing species for protection, gaps in knowledge about species, and limited enforcement capacity all have adverse effects on ecosystems and communities," DeMarco said in a written statement.
The commissioner's fall audits also looked at policies to manage low- and intermediate-risk radioactive waste, which accounts for 99.5 per cent of all radioactive waste in Canada.
DeMarco said Natural Resources Canada, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, and Atomic Energy of Canada were doing a good job managing the waste.

P.E.I. Minister of Social Development and Housing Matthew MacKay has broken down how $5 million in financial relief will be provided to Islanders impacted by post-tropical storm Fiona.
Much of the money will be distributed to non-profit organizations and spent on boosts to social programs, with social housing recipients and seniors getting top-ups.
"We know that there are many Islanders who are struggling right now — many of whom were struggling before the hurricane," MacKay said at an EMO briefing on Wednesday.
The minister said the following one-time financial assistance will be offered to eligible Islanders:
$150 for each social program recipient and dependent (Social Assistance and Assured Income). $150 for each household registered with the Seniors Independence Initiative. $150 for each social housing household (including mobile rental voucher and rental supplement recipients). $100 by means of a one-time grocery card to any household with Islander(s) over the age of 65.
