A community patrol officer who worked for the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) needed almost two years off work after she heard a supervisor promise to "get rid of her” to another colleague.

Janice Gordon began working with TCHC in 2005. By 2007, she worked as a special constable providing security for residents in community housing.

On June 21, 2010, Gordon, who is black, was driving in a patrol vehicle with fellow officer Derek Anderson, when supervisor William Henry addressed him via the car radio system.
