A long-anticipated report into discrimination at the the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) has been made public.
It follows a two-year study into multiple reports of racism, harassment and bullying at the Royal Victoria Hospital, the Montreal General Hospital and other MUHC locations.
“The degree of how racism was expressed towards certain people — the physical, the emotional, the harassment — that was quite scary to hear,” said report co-author Seeta Ramdass.
Global News has heard from multiple employees and others who said, for years, they experienced and witnessed incidents of bullying, xenophobia as well as physical and verbal assault by people in positions of authority.
“We have been receiving lot and lots of complaints from members saying they’re facing discrimination,” MUHC CSN union president Shiaman Diawara told Global News.
