workplace is not the law or the judge. workplace has responsiblities -legal ones, which they did not adhere to. workplace bullying is incessant. jian needs to redevelop his dignity which he has likely lost, he is likely traumatized and will suffer emotional and physical challenges as a result of PTSD. he is innocent and has not been legally charged with anything. the girls share major responsibllity in not coming forward for themselves, for the future women, for ghomshi-that is, if they are being 100% honest. surely any sexual adult understands the murkiness of such grand accusations. and waiting to come forward just makes them look less reliable. go jian go, win your law suit, tell them all to fuck themselves and buy a little island and live unjudged, unpersecuted and heal! workplace bullying must be addressed here. Bill 168 made this kind of discrimination illegal but so far, only on paper. we all need to stand up not stand by and use the human right tribunals aviailable to us, use specialized employment lawyers available to us, call someone on behalf of a friend. IT is rampant in the Toronto District School Board-creating false accusations so that they can push out innocent teachers that are senior, smart, open and strong, i read about a case where corrine, a principal from gh in the western part of the board allegedly did this to a wonderful teacher and 100's fo students and parents protested but it did nothing, she was gone overnight and from what i hear she has been scared by the board into never talking about it and the principal also somehow scared the staff into keeping in contact with her, so she lost all of her colleagues. Reportedly, she bragged about this to the caretakers are her new school. she was proud of being able to say she's escorted all kinds o teachers off the property and sometimes, she allegely said, with the police...this is just one example of this same principal and I have seen it happen over the years so many times. Someone is different, or envied, or gay or too nice so the other staff go after them, then they become watched and of course stories are told and good, wonderful teachers, well, their lives as they knew it were gone. no doubt their lives are way better, away from the self loathing that exists in some people and the complete lack o empathy, compassion, fairness, and failure to care for their staff members seems to be contagious. Until they are exposed nothing will stop them. we must drop our fear as canadians who don't rock the boat and rock it hard. how can we expect children to do this while the adults around them are breaking laws. oh boy. something good has got to come from this!

He must have a " Fair Trial " before any decision made to fire him! Here is Canada and CBC must return him back to his job before any Trial.

I believe that there is two sides to every story and though I don't condone rape I strongly believe there is more to this story then what has been shared. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty.

Since none of these women have pressed charges, then Ghomeshi and what he chooses to do behind closed doors is none of anyone's business but his and his consensual partner. If there are as many women who felt abused by Ghomeshi as reported, but none have pressed sexual abuse charges, then it's all hearsay unless it can be proven in a court of law. Get out of his bedroom, put him back on the radio, and restore a 14 year, unblemished career in broadcasting.

This situation is a social media witch hunt. First the penalty then the trial? Sound familiar?
