Nunavut women’s group wants help for sexual assault victims

When I am on circuit the lists are sexual assault after sexual assault after sexual assault:  the problem is very serious and dwarfs offences seen in the South:

Territory must face history of “endemic sexual assault in our communities”


The Government of Nunavut should do more to help the victims of sexual violence, the Qulliit Status of Women Council said Aug. 16 in a statement.

“Qulliit believes that Nunavut has a moral imperative to address its staggering rate of sexual violence against children, which is 10 times higher here than in the rest of Canada,” the council said in the statement.
