Police Duped In Reporter Arrest: Journalism Instructor



“If that’s all it takes to be charged with criminal harassment, then I guess I’ve criminally harassed hundreds of people over the years. Because it doesn’t sound like the reporter was doing anything out of the ordinary. Unless there is other information that we are not aware of at this time, it seems like the police are being used by a source who simply wants to insulate herself from attention.”

Carleton University instructor Randy Boswell

Former Citizen colleague Boswell is responding to the arrest of a Radio Canada reporter in Gatineau for alleged harassment of person who was key to his story.

The reporter phoned the woman once and emailed one time to enable her to tell her story. She contacted police.

  1. He emailed her after she did not show up for a scheduled meeting. A full police investigation needs to transpire.

    From all reports to this date and time, he did nothing to warrant an arrest.


  2. When we first heard about Bill Cosby’s indiscretions about two or three years ago, people were variously disbelieving, disappointed, disgusted … In the time since, we have had boys and girls calling “wolf” on what seems like a daily basis. Soon, a serious issue that should demand attention will occur and no one is going to listen. It’s long past time to stop sensationalizing these issues and deal with them in the halls of justice, not the media.
