He doesn't deserve your sympathy. People remember that Ghomeshi was acquitted of sexual assault, but people forget that he treated female employees at CBC like garbage.

CBC's inquiry into how their management handled complaints about Ghomeshi resulted in 2 managers being fired.

Bad publicity from the criminal charges was the catalyst that led to the rest of this stuff becoming public. 

He deserved to be fired for the way he treated other employees.

The only reason he didn't get fired sooner was that the network brass thought that he was their star, and felt that the women who he abused were expendable if it kept him happy.

He's a goon who bullied and degraded women because he knew that he could get away with it.

Thanks for your reply to this very interesting topic kimmy. Personally, I could never do what Ghomeshi did but I'll always wonder about whether any of the women involved were into S&M with him. His behaviour was disgusting to say the least.

The question becomes valid considering that he wasn't charged and prosecuted for his crimes. There's also no doubt that he did pretty much what he was accused of doing.

And my guess is that he's likely still doing it, albeit from a safer vocation that doesn't make his activities prohibitive. Do you think so? We both know that what happens in the bedrooms of Canada, remains the business of the participants.
It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said. ~M.T.
