Reporter Heather Gillis was shooting a news segment at the Robin Hood Bay landfill Monday afternoon when a man in a gray pickup allegedly yelled the vulgar phrase commonly abbreviated by "FHRITP" as he drove by.
The sexist phrase - "F--k her right in the p---y" - is frequently hurled at female reporters on the job.
Telegram, CBC and NTV reporters have all spoken out on the vulgar trend in the past.
Gillis tweeted a photo of the truck, license plate clearly visible, with, "#growup #notokay Publicly shaming you."
The RNC tweeted back, asking Gillis to call and make a formal complaint.
Later, police confirmed they had laid a charge of causing a disturbance in relation to the incident.
"We will continue to take these matters seriously," the police tweeted Monday night. "Disrespect can be the root for violence."
