A BC Mountie is denying ever bullying or harassing an officer because of her learning disabilities.
Earlier this year, former Maple Ridge RCMP Constable Alice Fox filed a lawsuit again her superior, Staff Sgt. Marc Alexander.
The Mountie, who was once featured in the popular “It Gets Better” anti-bullying campaign, claims she was repeatedly berated in front of colleagues for her poor paperwork, handwriting and exhibit handling.
But in a response, Sgt. Alexander says he provided support and encouragement to Fox, and never harassed her.
He is asking a judge to toss out the lawsuit.
The Attorney General of Canada and the Minister of Justice also deny responsibility.
The development comes as lawyers argue for a class-action lawsuit against the RCMP to be certified.
363 current and former female RCMP officers have come forward, alleging sexual harassment and gender discrimination.
