Metro Views Canada

Publicly appointed investigators have dealt a scathing rebuke to the province's widely lauded new law, which other provinces have sought to emulate
If you had any doubt that Canadian universities are woefully ill-equipped and objectively ineffective at dealing with sexual violence, we now have research to prove it.
It’s a fact that media investigations have revealed in recent years that sexual violence advocates and survivors know all too well.
And it’s now borne out by the most comprehensive report on experiences of campus sexual violence completed in this country.
“The Response to Sexual Violence at Ontario University Campuses,” a scathing, 56-page research report, has been obtained by Metro. The result of an independent investigation funded by the Ontario government, it calls for a “massive change” in how schools handle sexual violence, says principal investigator Dawn Moore, an associate professor of law at Carleton.
