The JUST Act is one step closer to becoming law!

I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for the support I’ve received from Canadians across the country, from police officers, legal scholars, activists, women working on the front lines of sexual assault crisis centres and most importantly sexual assault survivors. Thank you!
I want to give the biggest shout out and thank you to Tom Mulcair and Canada’s NDP. Tom stood up in the House of Commons to support my bill and move it to committee. Rarely do you see support like this across party lines.
It’s fantastic to see this support on International Women’s Day for a bill that will give victims of sexual assault more confidence in the justice system.
