    Of course not. She's the one with the power and control in that relationship... that'd be a real turn off for this fucker.

    New assault allegations surface against Ghomeshi

    Toronto staff Nov 5, 2014 08:42:34 AM

    New assault allegations are surfacing against Jian Ghomeshi from his time at York University in the early 1990s.
    Jim Hounslow told the Toronto Star he was groped by the former radio host when the two were students and working together for the York Federation of Students.
    Hounslow told the newspaper he was waiting for an elevator with Ghomeshi when he grabbed Hounslow’s genitals and fondled him through his jeans.
    The university could not find a record of any complaints against the former CBC host, but admitted they don’t keep those records from that long ago.
    Ghomeshi was working on a political science thesis and held a paid position as the president of the student group during the 1990-1991 school year.
    Hounslow, who now works at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, said he and other people on campus viewed Ghomeshi as a “sexual predator.”
    Another former York student told the newspaper about a meeting in 1988 in which female students were warned by their residence advisers, who are older students, about Ghomeshi’s behaviour with women.
    Kerry Eady said the residence advisers told the students they had reports of Ghomeshi hitting women and one report of him choking a woman in a stairwell.
    Eady said the young students were warned to be careful in co-ed washrooms and in stairwells.
    There are no official records of these alleged attacks.
    Neither Ghomeshi nor his lawyers responded to the Toronto Star’s questions about the incidents.
    The CBC has announced they have hired employment lawyer Janice Rubin to lead a third-party investigation into the allegations against the broadcaster’s former employee.

    Nine woman have stepped forward alleging they were hit and choked by Ghomeshi, and Toronto police have opened an investigation after three women registered complaints.

    Jian Ghomeshi arrested on sex assault charges

    By:Jacques GallantStaff Reporter,Kevin DonovanInvestigations, Published on Wed Nov 26 2014

    Former CBC radio host Jian Ghomeshi was arrested Wednesday morning, Toronto police confirmed.

    Ghomeshi, 47, has been charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcome resistance – choking.

    He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.

    Nine women and one man have told the Star and other media that they were choked, hit or sexually harassed by Ghomeshi. Toronto police began their investigation on Oct. 31. At the time, three women, including Trailer Park Boys actress Lucy DeCoutere, had come forward with allegations.

    Ghomeshi, who was fired by the CBC on Oct. 26, dropped his $55-million lawsuit against the public broadcaster on Tuesday.

    CBC spokesman Chuck Thompson declined comment, saying “we don’t comment on police matters.”

    Jian Ghomeshi to plead not guilty to sex assault, choking charges

    Former CBC Radio host must live with mother and stay in Ontario, per bail conditions

    Forrmer CBC Radio host Jian Ghomeshi was released on bail today following a court appearance in Toronto to face five criminal charges. He is accused of sexual assault and choking.
    A sombre looking Ghomeshi exited the downtown courthouse through a crush of media and police officers after his bail was set at $100,000.
    Ghomeshi's lawyer Marie Henein told the gathered reporters that her client would be pleading not guilty and there would be no further statements to the media. "We will address these allegations fully and directly in a courtroom. It is not my practice to litigate my cases in the media," she said.

    Henein requested a routine publication ban on the bail hearing, which was granted, meaning the allegations and evidence presented during the proceedings cannot be reported.

    The fifth estate investigates.
    Friday 9 p.m. ET

    His bail conditions include living with his mother — who was present in court and acted as his surety — no contact with his alleged victims and an agreement to surrender his passport and remain in Ontario.
    When asked by a judge if he understood the conditions of his release, Ghomeshi clasped his hands in front of him, nodded slightly and said "yes" and "I do."
    The charges come a month after he was fired by CBC.
    Surrendered to police

    Ghomeshi, 47, surrendered to police on Wednesday morning and was formally charged under the Criminal Code with four counts of sexual assault and one described by police as "overcome resistance – choking."
    None of the charges have been tested in court.

    Following his release on bail, he arrived at his mother's house in Thornhill, just north of Toronto, at around 4:20 p.m. Ghomeshi said nothing as he exited the passenger's side of a dark grey SUV and walked down the side of the house.
    His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 8.
    Toronto police Chief Bill Blair said he could not shed any more light on the charges.
    "I have no additional information other than what was released by the office this morning," he told reporters. "All matters will be dealt with before the court."
    Blair did add that police are encouraging any other victims to come forward
    "I want to offer them my assurance that they will be treated with dignity and respect," he said.
    The police department's sex crimes unit began investigating Ghomeshi on Oct. 31 after three women filed complaints alleging he was physically violent without their consent.
    'I hope that victims' voices continue to be heard and that this is the start of a change that is so desperately needed.'— Lucy DeCoutere
    One of the women who contacted police was actress Lucy DeCoutere, a captain in the Royal Canadian Air Force and a star of the long-running TV series Trailer Park Boys.
    DeCoutere released a statement on Wednesday, saying: "The past month has seen a major shift in the conversation about violence against women. It has been an overwhelming and painful time for many people, including myself, but also very inspiring. I hope that victims' voices continue to be heard and that this is the start of a change that is so desperately needed."
    Ghomeshi, who hadn't been heard from or seen publicly in weeks, previously issued a statement denying the allegations, and saying all acts involving rough sex were consensual.
    In his most recent public statement, shortly after the allegations started coming forward, he said he intended to meet them directly and that he didn't intend to discuss the matter with the media.
    Lawsuit dropped

    A CBC spokesman declined to comment on the charges against Ghomeshi.
    "We understand that none of the charges involve employees or former employees of CBC, and we won't be commenting about charges that are now before the courts," said Chuck Thompson.

    News of the charges against Ghomeshi came a day after it was revealed a $55-million lawsuit he launched against the CBC last month, after he was fired in late October as host of the radio arts, culture and entertainment program Q, was being dropped. The withdrawal was formalized on Wednesday afternoon. CBC has said Ghomeshi will pay $18,000 in legal costs.
    But Ghomeshi is fighting the dismissal through the CBC union, having filed a grievance through the Canadian Media Guild.
    CBC has said it decided to terminate his employment after seeing "graphic evidence" that he had physically injured a woman.
    Ghomeshi admitted in a lengthy Facebook post, published on the day he was fired, that he engaged in "rough sex," but insisted his encounters with women were consensual.
    Since his dismissal, nine women have come forward with allegations, some dating back a decade, that Ghomeshi sexually or physically assaulted them.
    CBC has hired employment lawyer Janice Rubin, who is conducting an internal investigation into the allegations against Ghomeshi.
    Watch The Unmaking of Jian Ghomeshi on CBC's the fifth estate, Friday at 9 p.m. ET. CBC insiders tell the story of what really happened.

    What, live with his mother, a grown man. I've never heard of such a thing. Is that normal in Canada instead of custody?

    I don't know. There are still so many unanswered questions. When he was arrested, was it with his own handcuffs?
