Did a powerful coach groom his talented young runner for sex?
"The problem at the heart of today's story an ugly one but it's not particularly unique. A grown man in a position of power allegedly uses that power to groom a young woman. I as a friend and as a partner and finally for a sexual relationship if there's one thing the past few years of these stories should have taught us. It's that this scenario happens absolutely everywhere. But what happens when the story goes public? That varies wildly depending on the world in which it happens in large companies and big industries by now there is a process or at least there should be even in smaller companies. There's usually a structure of some sort in place in the tiny insular world of Canadian long distance running though there's not much of that to speak of and the allegations that landed in a national newspaper almost two weeks ago have exposed just how badly some oversight is needed in these small communities almost two decades ago now a promising young woman met a notable coach and the story went the way these stories sometimes go and nobody talked nothing was done until it hit the papers and now at tiny world of Canadian long distance running has been blown wide open and nobody knows what happens now I'm Jordan Heathrow. This is the big story Michael. Dale is a freelance journalist for this particular investigation. He worked with the globe in Mail. Michael Hi how are you doing? I'm doing well. You performed quite a deep dive on a problem that I don't think a lot of people even knew was on anybody's radar. Why don't you start by telling us who's Meghan Brown certainly Megan Brown? Actually if if you're a fan of track and field and Canada you may remember the name because she was a bright star Ten fifteen years ago. was better apex or career And she started off as a high school genome. She ran very briefly with a club called. Speed River Track and Field Club in wealth and also briefly with the University of wealth before moving on to the University of Toronto. She had some success ultimately she didn't become an Olympian or the next great Canadian distance runner And my investigation in part unearth. Y happened or why it didn't happen in the same vein than on just so we have the two characters upfront. Who is Dave Scott? Thomas Dave Scott. Thomas is or was until very recently arguably the most powerful individual and track and field in Canada. He was a coach at the University of wealth which is a powerhouse program and track and field only rivaled with US schools and he also had a speed river track and Field Club in wealth which had a number of Olympians that ran Ran With him at the club over the years and developed an unimaginable amount of talent there and he was a national team coach so he coached And the two thousand Sixteen Olympics as well so in a relatively small world in this industry in Canada he was one of the bigger names. He was an outsized figure for sure. I mean I one coach said to me. He sort of like a Scotty. Bowman type figure. He's a an empire builder on a lot of different levels But I would argue that within the cloistered world of of Canadian track and field and distance running. He was even much more powerful than that. So let's start by going back to the beginning and tell me how Meghan Brown Matt Dave Scott Thomas. It all started in the fall of two thousand and one when. Megan was a sixteen year old kid and she was very new to running. Suliman wearing a couple of years. Her Mom had died When she was a teenager and she discovered running after her mother's death in part a coping mechanism and she won the junior race at the Ontario Cross country. Championships that the high school championships which is a pretty incredible feat for someone running and Dieskau. Thomas saw her. That meet identified her as the up and coming feed on that she was. I suppose luckily for him. She happened to be a local kid. She was from the farm community outside of wealth area so he in the weeks after her win went to her high school and recruited her there at that time when she is sixteen and he's recruiting her. How big a deal was he. Then would have been like being recruited by Scotty Bowman at that time Not Quite but he was definitely an up and coming force certainly locally it would be a big deal Guelleh was At the university level was developing as a top flight school and his program that was sort of attached to the school. The Speed River Track and Field Club was becoming a known commodity in the running scene and he was attracting some talent but this was at the very beginning the building stages and he's a very charismatic figure. As well he you know. He offered her an opportunity in a situation for her to grow her talent. And obviously it was you know in the community so she and her father who is a a widower. The time trusted Mr Scott Thomas to take care of their daughter. She spoke to you in a lot of depth for this story. What does she say about their relationship? Their working relationship in the early days. I think it was Positive and then it became very intense. Very quickly They develop you mean by intense while the very quickly started spending a lot of time together and time not just in terms of after school when he's coaching around the track but even after that and according to many of the athletes that I spoke with that were present at that time while she was still a high school kid training at speed river they would disappear off in the car they will go for drives And as Megan told me later in our interviews He would take her for tea and they would spend long periods of time talking about a started off talking about running and then it very quickly diverged from that talking about each of their emotional states in his as much as hers and then e. Mail started Phone calls this is at the during the early days of the cell phone right so megan actually had a phone was kind of Sarab tissue going out and you know are up in her room or out on the road talking to Dave Scott Thomas while he was staying late at his office in the evenings. What do we know about what the people around this relationship thought about it? so far you've described stuff that I think would raise people's eyebrows but Perhaps not crossing particular line. The first problem is is that there was an incredible amount of blind trust given a day. Scott Thomas he started the program at the University of wealth it was nothing program by all accounts And he built it from nothing to quite something and later on to an incredible program And because of that he had unilateral power. It wasn't a whole lot of checks and balances going on university and put in place and parents trusted him as well He's sort of report himself to be a family man. He has daughters. He was married guy in his late thirties at the time. So there was a lot of trust built in their students Athletes in the in the club and athletes at the university Told me that they definitely. They started to gossip. They they definitely saw something going on but they're kids. They're they're teenagers. They're eighteen. Nineteen twenty years old others. A lot of jealousy actually Many many athletes told me former athlete told me that they felt a great deal of Chelsea towards Megan because she was occupying all of all of their coaches time. Right but the thing is is that Dave. Thomas gave her that time that attention so it was definitely a two way street. That was going on. Where did that lead in the fall of two thousand two? The speed river team led by Dave. Scott Thomas went in an RV and drove out to Moncton for The National Cross Country Championships. A Megan was the only teenage girl in the group who was a lot of like university students that were going out and you know it was a really fun time for her. She was very excited. This is the first big trip for our She's a pretty naive kid as well and she ended up winning that meet. She won that the national junior title. Which is a huge deal and meant that you'd be going to a world championships the CA- following year and that night after winning title instead of going out with friends her teammates and celebrating She went on a drive with Scott Thomas in that. Rv She alleges and That's when he approached her of with the idea of a relationship he won't. He was kind of probing her for how she felt about him emotionally and sexually as well and shortly after that a sexual relationship again between the two of them and she was seventeen years old. He was thirty eight so the topic. At least of the relationship is broached right after her biggest victory so far and and what should have been the first of of many. What happens the weeks after that according to Meghan Will shortly after that after they come back from the National Championships in Moncton Her and Mr Scott. Thomas actually go for a trip alone in his car. T. FROM WEALTH TO TORONTO. A day trip they went to the the ROM. The Ryland Area Museum Museum and in the exhibit somewhere He kisses her and then later on that evening they drive back to wealth they go to The Arboretum which is large forested area owned by the university where he actually trained as athletes. And that's where they they had Megan's first sexual encounter in her life in his car and She says that she felt it was an ultimatum. that he gave her before they had sex. Which was that either heavy relate sexual relationship with me or You're going to lose everything that we built. Of course she chose the former. I think she realizes now that consent was not possible at that point in her life based on her age based on the the power dynamic that existed between the two of them So from there on in there was a A two year secret sexual relationship That they maintained until she was a Shortly after she joined the University of Wealth As a student athlete. How does that kind of thing happen? And I think this sounds like kind of a stupid question because we now hear about this kind of thing happening often but how does something like that happen? Within a relationship that has so many power dynamics involved and nobody around it does anything. I mean you mentioned. They might not have known about the romantic aspect of the relationship that you mentioned that her teammates were certainly aware. Was anybody else involved with the club or the university aware that this was going on. I mean this is a debate. That's kind of turned the running community in Canada. Too Right now which is Those that were a part of the University of Guel for Speed River Track and Field Club at that time. Either as coaches or athletes.

PEIs election is next week. It could be historic.
"To what happens in Prince Edward Island. And I'm willing to bet that if pressed many of you would admit the same thing that needs to change there's an election next week and Canada's smallest province and some of the polls are well. They would make history if they turned out to be true liberal leader. Wade McLaughlin, set the vote for April twenty third, and according to the polls this election could produce Canada's first green party government to years ago. They had the support of nine percent of voters by last year. They'd risen to eighteen percent before bounding to thirty eight percent. This fall topping all other parties, including the governing liberals. A real possibility of the first green party government in Canada is reason enough to tune our ears to the island. But there is a lot more to today. That is probably a scape. The notice of Canadians beyond the east coast right now, most of us know PI from the beautiful way that it's sold to tourists, and that's lovely. And I wanna go there. But it does seem like we need to know a little bit more. Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Trevor corkum is a writer at the walrus and the global mail. He splits his time between Toronto and Prince Edward Island. Trevor how much attention does candidate usually pay to elections in PE. I not very much. I mean, I think most people aren't even aware when there is an election. I wasn't until about two weeks ago. Yeah. Exactly. But this is a nail biter, and it's has a chance to make history. So this is when people wanna watch what's going on there right now. So it's been an interesting landscape the liberals have been in power for twelve years. So since two thousand and seven and traditionally PE, I like a lot of the maritime provinces. But especially in PE, I the elections have alternated between the conservatives and the liberals before twenty fifteen only one other member from one other party had ever been elected in the history of PI elections, and that was one end EP. Member back in the nineties. What's happened is the green party has risen in the pools. And they're now leading so they've come from not quite out of nowhere. But in the last few years, they've really ramped up their popularity and in the last four out of five pools they've been leading the liberals it's a bit of a three way race, but the the greens look like they may be pulling out of the bag. What's going on in PI in general that would lead to this kind of change election because this is unprecedented in Canadian provincial politics? Anyway, it is. Yeah. There been a lot of interesting indicator. So PI people have this idea of PI being a bucolic rural place a place that's a little bit stuck in time. You know, a lot of our the advertising campaigns on the island of really played this. It's kind of a place where you go down home. You go to the beach. You have some good food. Everyone's very friendly. And that's all still true to a certain case. But immigration is one thing that's changed in the last few years. So. The population of PI's always been pretty low. But it's lead the country immigration in the last couple of years, so very robust immigration, which has led to strengthening of the economy. So PI's lead the country in a number of economic indicators GDP growth housing starts. I saw something today in the paper that said housing prices have jumped twenty percent in one year on the island. So you're you're seeing that traditional island also dealing with a lot of big city issues like housing like the economy like this growing inequality between people who can afford, those changes and people who can't. So the green party's been able to capitalize a little bit on some of the unease with specifically the economic situation in the inequality also number of people have moved to buy from other parts of the country. So the province has become a little bit younger than the other provinces in Atlantic Canada. And it's really that youth vote in a way that's open to these new ways of doing things. So. So a large number of people under forty have kind of broken the tradition of voting for either the liberals or the conservatives which for a lot of families have gone back literally hundreds of years, where if you are a certain family, you voted conservative were another family you voted liberal, and that's all just splintering away. Give me an example, because I'm kind of fascinated by what you said about how we perceive PI, thanks to the tourism commercials. Because I know that that is my main source of of images of p give me an example of what you see on the island today that you'd have no idea of. Yeah. I mean, there are a number of things I think if you're in Charlottetown one of the things that strikes you first off is the diversity of the population. So there's people have been moving their from literally all over the world. So the school board, for example, we'll give out notices to parents in multiple languages because of the diversity of the classrooms, and at amazing selection of ethnic restaurants from the Middle East from Asia. South America, Afghanistan, Syria restaurants that you'd expect to finance Ron or Montreal. But not in a city of forty thousand people Charlottetown has two mosques, for example that both been built over the last ten years. So it's an it's actually a very cosmopolitan small city. So those are just a few things you see sort of on the surface. How did the green party come to be leading the polls? Yeah. You know? It's very interesting because the green parties, I think in Canada, especially provincially have this reputation of being a little bit of the fringe party, you know, the party of older hippies and and of peace love and grooving us on. And I think increasingly elsewhere, they straddle a very interesting part of the spectrum where the greens have NPR have been very pragmatic, so they've emphasized fiscal responsibility. So balancing budgets, in addition to growing, social and an environmental programs. So if you look at the population of pediatric. You know, there are a lot of older people. And as I said a lot of growing younger people. So those are kind of the two poles of the population that I think have driven part of this this interest and the green party, I think we're seeing around the country and N P I this splintering of the traditional left right parties. People are looking for new alternatives, and the greens have been able to capitalize on that on ease with the way things of always been done. If we drilled down a bit on as with other maritime provinces very much the case in PI. There's been this real sense of this kind of old boys network or backroom deals being done in things like, you know, who's getting loans that kind of thing there've been a number of big cases in the last ten to fifteen years on scandals with the liberal party that of really disillusioned people with the way things are done. So in general time, they would then just switch their vote to the conservative party. But they conservatives on P, I have really had a tough. Time they've had six liters and six years they really haven't been going anywhere quickly. So the greens have capitalized on that on ease. But have also really tailored their programs to both rural islanders, and then people in the cities as well. Tell me a little bit about the leadership dynamics and play who's the leader of the liberal party, who's the leader of the greens. So the leader of the liberals I mean, in a way, they're they're puller opposite. So the current premier Wade McLaughlin is the former president of UPI he comes from a very well established island family. They're very well known. They've been political family for many years, he inherited the party or didn't inherit the party, but became the leader in twenty fifty and after Robert gives resigned after a scandal in government, and he did win a majority government at that time, but he seen as a little bit aloof two islanders. So he's got that university president energy around him. So people. Say, you know, we really like Wade, but they don't really warm to him. He doesn't have a lot of natural charisma. So for the last three years, the leader of the green party, Peter Bevan Baker has been a foreign head. The preferred choice of of premier for islanders and the support of the green party has kind of incrementally grown based on his own personal leadership. So he was he's someone who I would call an anti politician. He's just suggest an average guy. He's he's an emigrant from Scotland he came into a couple of decades ago. He was a former dentist who bought an old church in rural PE, I converted into cafe had his dental practice on the side. He plays the trumpet. He's a storyteller and people just really warm to him. He's very authentic, and he's the kind of person who you know, you just to stop and chat to on the street. The kind of person who had a fundraising event will be the first one up dancing is. Unafraid to kind of poke fun at himself. So that's something that really appeals to people on the island. How difficult would it be to translate? Some of what the green party has seen NPA I to a national level. I mean, we've talked a lot on this podcast about the the upcoming federal election. And certainly the left is in kind of a state of disarray in general. So there is an opportunity there. How can they take what they've done there and build it? Yeah. It's tricky based on our current electoral system. But I think a couple of kind of lessons that they've learned from their other provincial successes. You know, we know the grants of won their first seat until and Guelleh's. They won three seats and the New Brunswick election. I think the New Brunswick cases interesting because they won in downtown Fredericton writing. So very urban writing they won in the riding around mount Allison university, so small university town, and then they want a very rural northern New Brunswick riding, so. So they were able to appeal both to kind of a very local grassroots kind of rural population. People in rural communities who are worried about jobs and the rural economy, and they were able to appeal to people at universities younger students and then urban people of the urban left. And I think that's a coalition that if I were Elizabeth may I I would wanna try to emulate, and I think we see in the B C election and the seats they won there in the seats that they're targeting at the federal level that it looks like that's that's the formula. They're looking to repeat so really targeting some of the urban writings, especially on the west coast where maybe the end EP is done. Well, traditionally the liberals, but they're flagging a bit. Some of the the more rural ridings that tend to be around left leaning cities or left leaning region. So the country and then pockets were there strong youth populations like around universities. So all that to say is I don't think this if. If the green stew, and it's going to translate in a green victory at the federal level. But you know, we know that in the case of PI New Brunswick winning the first seat, then leads to a couple of seats. And then you know, who knows where it goes. So based on the current splintering and fragmentation across Canada, you know, we don't really know what's going to happen. But we do know that people are open to new ideas. What kind of new ideas are in the platform N P? So as I said, it's a it's an interesting mix because there's a real mix of pragmatism with some very forward thinking idea. So on the forward thinking side they've made a commitment to making the province carbon neutral by twenty forty five so investing in small loans to homes and small businesses for things like solar panels electric vehicles. They've said that they will provide loans to rural small businesses and entrepreneurs to

They're hearing a word that is essentially, you know, billing their their little brother or a humanizing is conditioned. It could be called anything. There's the English language is his rich of vocabulary. And I think the word that the classification that they came up with is, you know, so simple. It's minor. And where does it come from? I'm looking at this novice. Atom bantam midget where did how did that actually become a category? I don't know. I have no idea a lot of feedback. We're getting it's been like that forever. In fact, when my husband played basketball, she was in that little I when he was fourteen and fifteen and in again, he said the same thing to me is like, I never I. Never gave it a second thought. I didn't know, you know, for the people that had affect on it. It doesn't change anything. It's still going to be the same caliber of basketball. It's still the same game. It just has a different classifications level. Do you think is possible? It was sped to other sports because most of them use this term, don't they? Yeah. And and that's what are hoping that, you know, sets the precedent for either age groups changing all the names to either like, you know, by age of like, you seventeen sixteen fifteen going down, which would be great. It would be if he wonderful of other people followed suit other sports. I know that does change has brought on people say, well, I'm gonna check my son plays this sport. Or my daughter plays this sport. And I like to see that change happen all across the board because there's nothing positive about that word, and there's nothing meaningful about it. So you got a lot of positive positive feedback. Positive reaction was this is a small thing they can do and make a big difference. I understand you've also had negative responses. Some pretty nasty things. What crisis? What country actions really surprising? But again, I think you know, you have to take in consideration that when you're hiding behind a keyboard. It's easy to try to be vocal. And and they'll everyone's sensitive, and and people just have to grow thicker skin. But I would love to tell those people that until you're affected by anything. Whether it be a condition, whether it be mental health, or you know, someone or your your personally, your is being open to it. And you're always going to say, oh, everyone's to send everyone complains everyone. But it's easy to sit. Backing and criticize behind a keyboard rather than we did a positive thing for a group of people and their families, and I just have to keep focusing on that. But yeah, there's some hateful things that it it it. It doesn't make any sense. It shows how much more education needs to be done in how to like the fact that we have to almost justify that it would it would be great. If you could just respect people as people instead of labeling them and getting rid of. These labels that have negative connotation for that specific group of people languages changed over the years.

And there was a detail in that announcement that really caught the attention of food safety experts this exact strain of e-coli bacteria had turned up. Before it caused a relatively small wave of illness a year ago, then seemed to disappear got more attention in Canada than in the US. The Canadians thought people were getting infected from Romain lettuce. The US government wasn't convinced. And now it's back. Jeff Farber at the university of Guelleh in Canada says this almost never happens. We usually do not see that with have like a year apart to shame strain of equal five seven still hanging around. And it's disturbing. He says to think that the source of the coli contamination. A year ago is still there making people sick, basically means it's never resolved teeth problem of where the equal ice train is coming from. He's optimistic. They'll find the source this time, I think it's very important that they do isolated. So we don't have have third outbreak. Because then I think. A lot of pressure to do something drastic. He says he doesn't know what that something drastic might be Lawrence Goodrich director of the food safety program at McGill University in Montreal says yesterday's announcement was actually a more drastic response than usual telling people to stop eating all Romain lettuce helps protect the public. But it also means a lot of economic damage to workers and companies that are selling healthy uncontaminated lettuce. So there's this fine line that has to be walked by the public house officials. He says, yes, it is a tiny number fifty people sick out of hundreds of millions, but he would advise people to follow the recommendations from public health authorities. I like to say that there's no need for the public to panic. But even one case is too much. And he's playing it safe. He says no romaine for him. Dan, Charles, NPR news..
