In Favour of Legislation to give Judges Education on Sexual Assault

I spoke in the House in support of Bill C-3, a bill that was originally introduced by the Hon. Rona Ambrose, the former Leader of the Conservative Party. The legislation will require judges to participate in continuing legal education with regards to sexual assault law. The Canadian judiciary must be held accountable and ensure that judges have the updated training Canadians expect them to have. That is why we are committed to ensuring that all judicial appointees take sexual assault sensitivity training prior to taking the bench.
