Long before Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly stepped down amidst criticism that the force had failed to stop the convoy occupation, there was trouble brewing within the Ottawa Police Service.

Officer misconduct, sexual harassment, abuse, and violent behaviour, has been a pattern within the OPS for years.

Dan Donovan, publisher of Ottawa Life magazine, knows these cases well, and he’s currently being sued by Sloly himself, for publishing an article titled ‘Rapes and lies—the cancerous misconduct at the Ottawa Police Service’.

Donovan sat down with reporter Cherise Seucharan to discuss the case, as well as recently a leaked video of Sloly being questioned about his conduct when he was a staff inspector with the Toronto Police Service.

When an Opioid Crisis hits a First Nation it’s different than in a city. In the city the addicted are mostly strangers.

So addiction is not just about the pain of losing somebody you love. It's about desperately hoping to save someone you love or protect someone you love.
