A lawsuit citing an alleged privacy breach of two former Mounties’ medical files could be getting bigger.
Derrick Ross and David Reichert filed a civil claim earlier this month that the RCMP unlawfully accessed their confidential counselling records without their knowledge.
Meanwhile Rob Creasser of the Mounted Police Professional Association of Canada says the publicity surrounding their case has compelled others to come forward.
“We’re actively hearing from other parts of the country, who’ve also had their privacy, their medical records released inappropriately.”
None of the allegations have been proven in court and as we understand, not all the defendants have yet been served.
