LOCAL XPRESS: Liberals’ response to sexualized violence on campus lacking

On April 18th, the Canadian Federation of Students - Nova Scotia delivered a letter to then-Minister of Labour and Advanced Education Kelly Regan on behalf of over 600 concerned students and community allies. This letter outlined the need for provincial legislation to combat sexualized violence on campus, and called upon the Liberal government to implement this legislation that they had previously blocked.

"Nova Scotia’s students deserve the highest form of protection: the law. Nova Scotia has consistently sparked a national dialogue about campus rape culture, but we are shamefully lagging behind when it comes to taking action to protect students. We, survivors, students, community organizers and allies urge the Liberal government to immediately pass legislation recommended by students to combat sexualized violence on campus."
