Calgary police have charged a man with hurling vulgarities at a female journalist covering the bad behaviour of hockey fans. CBC reporter Meghan Grant says she was reporting three weeks ago along the Red Mile, a strip of bars and restaurants popular with Calgary Flames fans, when a man shouted out from a passing truck. She says police have charged the man with a traffic offence that carries a 400-dollar fine. (Grant says the man shouted out the same sexually explicit phrase that has become a trend targeting female reporters. A man who recently shouted obscenities at a reporter covering a Toronto soccer game was fired by his employer for violating its code of conduct.)
