A settlement has been reached in the case of an RCMP instructor at the Training Academy who launched a human rights complaint over his treatment by the force.
Sgt. Yasinder Brar, who is of East Indian origin, alleged he suffered harassment and discrimination from other officers during the four years he worked as an instructor at the facility in Regina.
It wasn’t Brar’s first complaint. An earlier case involved the display, in RCMP offices, of posters that he said mocked his background. That case was also settled.
The current complaint took six years to get to a hearing. Details of the settlement haven’t been made public.
Brar is also linked to an unrelated discrimination complaint against the RCMP — he was a witness for a cadet who recently won compensation for harassment. The RCMP is appealing that case.
