Darshika Selvasivam, vice-president of the York Federation of Students, said she found the use of the word "extremely alarming."

A university spokesperson also said the school was "surprised and shocked" by the comment, although it does have a good and collaborative relationship with police.On January 24, 2011, Toronto Police Constable Michael Sanguinetti and another officer from 31 Division spoke on crime prevention, addressing the issue of campus rape at a York University safety forum at Osgoode Hall Law School.During the talk, Sanguinetti interrupted the more senior officer and said: "I've been told I'm not supposed to say this – however, women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized." I made a comment which was poorly thought out and did not reflect the commitment of the Toronto Police Service to the victims of sexual assaults.He pleaded not guilty at his trial saying he thought the woman had consented to sex.Dewar rejected his defence but said aspects of it could be considered in sentencing.Some of the letters of complaint, from persons who have worked directly with past victims, have pointed out that some of my comments were also traumatic for them.
