Please support this petition to let the government know with a history of sex assault should not be appointed to the courts.  I write this because I discovered that the government has appointed someone they both knew of and fired for sex assault as magistrate of Ontario's courts

Magistrate Habte Worku is a Magistrate of the courts in Toronto Ontario.

Shortly before his appointment he was fired from his job with the Ontario Government's Insurance commission as an insurance mediator after an investigation revealed he sexually assaulted an insurance agent and made sexually inappropriate remarks to a coworker.  This was taken to arbitration where he was found to have committed the sex assault.  The case documents can be found at this link from the Canadian Legal Information Institute:

The government was aware of this when they appointed him to the court, and they even reference his time as a government mediator as his qualification for the job.
