A former RCMP spokesman accused of sexually harassing a former colleague says he did nothing wrong.
In a statement of defense filed in BC Supreme Court, Insp. Tim Shields says not only did he not sexually harrass Atoya Montague while he was her superior, he says some of her allegations are flat out wrong, such as her accusation that he made vulgar sexual advances on a trip to Barriere in 2003.
Shields claims he and Montague had a friendly relationship. He even quotes a note from her in 2011 where she thanks him for being a constant source of support.
He adds that at no point prior to filing her civil claim did she report his behavior to the RCMP.
