Three former Canadian skiers have reached an out-of-court settlement with Alpine Canada over sexual abuse by one-time national ski coach Bertrand Charest.
The national governing body for alpine and ski cross racing announced today it had reached a deal with the three women, who sued the organization last December. Alpine Canada did not disclose the terms of the deal but stated in a news release the settlement was satisfactory to both sides.
The federation acknowledged that instead of providing support when the abuse was discovered, it put itself first, not the victims. Charest was convicted in June on more than three dozen sex charges involving female athletes ranging in age between 12 and He was sentenced to 12 years in prison, but his lawyers were in court last month appealing both his conviction and sentence and he remains free on bail while the court decides his fate.
