CALGARY — The interim president of the Canadian Olympic Committee says the organization’s board did not know of harassment complaints against former president Marcel Aubut.

Aubut resigned after women accused him of sexual comments and unwanted touching.

Interim president Tricia Smith told reporters on a conference call the COC board was unaware of specific instances of harassment.

The COC has hired a Canadian employment lawyer and human resource expert to conduct an independent review.
