Female firefighter and paramedic resign from Leduc Fire Services over on-the-job harassment allegations

BY The Canadian Press, Apr 6, 2022 9:49 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A female firefighter and paramedic has resigned from Leduc Fire Services south of Edmonton over on-the-job harassment allegations.

Megan Wright ended her seven-year career with a speech on Monday night to city council.

Wright said she brought allegations of sexual misconduct to superiors and was questioned instead of getting support.

In February, two other female firefighters filed a proposed class-action lawsuit against the city with similar allegations of harassment, bullying, discrimination and abuse.

At the council meeting, Mayor Bob Young called Wright's allegations alarming, but said he was limited in what he could say because of the lawsuit.
