Sexually harassed Presbyterian minister on P.E.I. wins major settlement

The Presbyterian Church on Prince Edward Island has been ordered to pay more than $600,000 to a female minister who was hounded from her Island pulpit in a sexual discrimination case that highlights difficulties faced by some women in the clergy.

The P.E.I. Human Rights Commission ordered the Island Presbytery on Friday to reinstate the ministerial licence of Rev. Gael Matheson, 60, who was relieved of her church duties in 1996.
