The intention is to summarize her efforts following the event and to set the record straight.

Within a day of her departing the hotel room, the London Police Service was notified and was investigating. After initial inquiries she spoke with a detective at the police station on the morning of June 22, 2018. That same day she underwent a physical examination at a hospital. She later provided her clothing from the evening into evidence. She made it clear to London Police as early as June 24, 2018 that she wanted criminal charges pursued. She met with officers again on June 26, 2018 as well as on August 31, 2018. After the passage of over seven months from the incident she was informed on February 6, 2019 that no charges would be laid. Earlier media reporting that she did not approach or cooperate with police was inaccurate.

After a period of reflection, she next pursued the matter through the formality of the civil justice system in the form of a lawsuit. That lawsuit was commenced on April 20, 2022 and was concluded by May 24, 2022.

Despite having now sought both criminal and civil legal cases she was asked to participate in the reopened internal Hockey Canada review and a renewed London Police investigation. She has complied with those requests. She provided a comprehensive written statement to Hockey Canada on July 21, 2022 and to the National Hockey League the following day. She has continued to cooperate with the London Police. She most recently voluntarily underwent a polygraph examination arranged by this office regarding her statement on the incident. She successfully passed that “lie detector test” with a rating of “truthful”. The testing result and report was provided to the London Police, the Hockey Canada review and the NHL investigators.

This woman has fully engaged and cooperated with all the legal and formal investigations surrounding these events. We ask that her privacy continue to be respected and thank the Canadian public for their concern.
