Quebec Letter Carrier Faces Ongoing Harassment for Being Gay



Quebec Letter Carrier Faces Ongoing Harassment For Being Gay

A letter carrier in Quebec has come forward with allegations of facing persistent harassment at work due to his sexual orientation, citing incidents that include offensive graffiti and derogatory messages.

According to a report by CTV News, the worker revealed that his name was crudely included in a drawing of a penis found in the office bathroom by a co-worker last year.

Further incidents involved defacing the worker’s desk and delivery truck with the derogatory term for gay men in French, and even sending a threatening letter to his home.

These harassing behaviors persisted for a troubling seven-month period, significantly impacting the worker’s well-being.

The affected worker has taken proactive steps by filing official complaints with supervisory authorities at the post office on Bridge Street, the Human Rights Commission, and local law enforcement agencies, although the perpetrator remains unidentified.

Authorities are now actively investigating the reported harassment incidents, with efforts to enhance security measures at the Bridge Street office to prevent future occurrences and ensure a safe work environment.

Canada Post, the employer of the letter carrier, has emphasized a zero-tolerance policy towards discrimination and inappropriate behavior within the workplace, pledging to address all allegations seriously and take appropriate actions in response to any form of misconduct.
