When an education counsellor began her career with the Saskatchewan Polytechnic school in September of 2014, a colleague introduced himself immediately and visited her office almost every day.

Kim Wolbaum worked at the Regina campus when she first met Afroze Naqvi. He went into her office on her first or second day and said he was the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Faculty Association (SPFA) representative and she could come to him with any concerns.

But almost immediately, testified Wolbaum, Naqvi began making more frequent visits to her office, sometimes lasting for an hour.
