In October 2014, sexual assault prevention educator Julie Lalonde visited the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston to discuss harassment and consent with undergraduate students. Afterward, she turned to the media to express her horror at what she described as the most hostile audience she had experienced in her speaking career. She was whistled at, catcalled, laughed at and openly disrespected. A whole five months later, she got an apology from the school\u2019s commandant, Brig.-Gen. Al Meinzinger. But after publicly critiquing the military for encouraging a culture of silence, Lalonde also received a backlash of abusive emails and tweets, telling CBC News, \u201cIf me talking about having been harassed compels you to write me an email telling me that I am human garbage and deserve to die, I think you\u2019re proving my point.\u201d I wish I could pretend Lalonde\u2019s story was unique \u2014 that of being harassed while giving an anti-harassment lecture, much less the issue of harassment in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) as a whole. But I know better.
