My me too story
With all these me too stories , I want to tell my story. .
In 2006, thru Kijiji I answered an add for a painter assistant. I worked 15 hours that day, I felt like a champ, was so proud of working such a long shift, also to I was excited to be trying a new skill, being a painter wasn’t a skill I had before.
The boss of the crew, offered to take back us 5 employees to his place to clean up , have a bite to eat, and if need be , a place was available to stay the night. I’ll never forget that house, it was in Ellerslie , a huge new built house. The boss was from Quebec, had a wife and kids. Nothing about him screamed run.
So, the crew all freshen up , and when I got done in the bathroom, the crew were gone. Leaving me with the boss. I remember that drink of pop he got me. I remember the big screen tv in the bedroom upstairs. But that’s all I remembered. He raped and drugged me for a week . And I continued to work for him , as a painters assitant while being out of it. I remember coming to for a breif moment , I remember feeling tired and groggy. But I don’t remember much else. Oh and he drove a white truck.
The day I came to,I wokeup at home , in my bed. I was confused on the day. I left on a Monday , but here it was Monday afternoon, a week latter. I was scared to go to the cops , to tell anyone. So I swept it under the rug. I never ever brought it up again. I was scared , he was a well known man , painting for a major company who was building the new builds on 17th St .
I never did say anything , but now I am.
