Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale is condemning the actions of an RCMP officer who, in a recently released video, asked a young woman who reported she'd been sexually assaulted whether she was "turned on" during the alleged attack.

The recording dates back to 2012 but was published by APTN News this week.Their story says the interview video was recorded after the minor reported a sexual assault while in the care of the B.C child welfare system.
