Sherry Podolchuk is the author of Women Not Wanted, the story of a female RCMP Officer who experienced workplace harassment and discrimination.  Her topic is about finding your voice in conflict and details some of her experiences over her tenure and the strategies she used to cope with the stress. 

Her message is to speak up against bullying, to learn what happens to the victims of bullying/harassment situations in the workplace and getting accountability for those involved.

He spent 12-15 hours per day at the McDonald's because of the free Wi-Fi. Tonight, a sex offender is arrested - caught using free internet in public to download child pornography... Detectives say the 25-year-old spent the past two years using the free Wi-Fi at the McDonald's... He worked on his computer and was a known regular of sorts in the children's play area at the restaurant.  

According to federal officers, open Wi-Fi - like that at McDonald's and Starbucks - is being increasingly used to traffic child pornography and the sexual solicitation of children - serious criminal felonies that are hard to stop because of the anonymity offered by open Wi-Fi.
