Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino is attacking a legal
settlement that requires officers to take more gay and lesbian sensitivity
Fantino calls it an unnecessary overreaction.
The agreement, signed between the Toronto Police Services
Board and seven complainants and approved by the Ontario Human Rights
Commission on Friday, closes the book on a raid on a female bathhouse by
police more than four years ago.
The board promises to develop new training programs for
officers of all ranks on dealing with gay, lesbian and transgendered people.
