Former B.C. naval officer charged with sex crimes

Former B.C. naval officer who provided acupuncture and massage charged with sex assaults

VICTORIA — A 71-year-old Esquimalt man and former Canadian Armed Forces officer has been arrested and charged with four counts of sexual assault.

The offences were allegedly carried out while the man was providing acupuncture, massage therapy and traditional Chinese medicine, and investigators believe there could be more victims.

Kit Wong is charged with sexual assault against four women who were allegedly assaulted in 2005 and 2006 while Wong was working out of his home business in Esquimalt, said Det. Graeme Leblanc, of Victoria Police Department’s special victims unit.
Wong is a retired navy lieutenant commander with the Canadian Armed Forces, based out of CFB Esquimalt, and a prominent member of Victoria’s Chinese community. As a result of his deep navy ties, many of his clients were military members, Leblanc said.
“These alleged sexual assaults left these women feeling powerless,” Leblanc said. Wong’s former position in the military left women feeling as though they could not come forward, he said.

“It doesn’t matter who the suspect is. We will listen,” Leblanc said.

I wonder what differences there are between BC naval officers, AB naval officers, MB, naval officers, NS naval officers, etc.

There haven't been any AB naval officers since West Ed shut down their submarine ride.

HMCS NONSUCH and HMCS TECUMSEH might disagree.   :whistle:

Naw, those are RCN officers. West Ed subs were Alberta’s own navy. Not well known but the crews used to swear their oath to King Ralph.   ;)

I was just there last month. The seals have taken over the ship.
