PETERBOROUGH, Ont. — A former Peterborough cop has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against his fellow officers, the Ontario Provincial Police, the Ontario Provincial Police Association and the province.

His statement of claim outlines a toxic work environment where, Jack states, he was reprimanded for things he didn’t do, signalled out for problems he didn’t create and punished for standing up for his rights.

“I want acknowledgement,” Michael Jack said. “I want recognition. I want to hold them accountable for their abuse of power.”

None of Jack’s allegations have been proven in court.
