Subject: Trudeau says sexual harassment is a 'systemic problem'
Read on: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-liberals-sexual-harassment-hehr-1.4507704?cmp=news-digests-cbc-news-politics

It is easy for Trudeau to say that we must listen to women who raise complaints of sexual harassment, interference and molestation but we have failed to provide them with a venue to be heard in. For decades, women have been denied due process.

Sexual misconduct Is unlawful under the criminal code, but there are three major flaws. First is that an accused must be found guilty beyond reasonable doubt. Often the crown must rely on the versions of the parties involved. The second flaw is that the crown prosecutes, and the woman harmed is effectively a by-stander. The third is that our criminal courts have very limited provisions for victim counselling and healing.

We need changes to our laws to allow a victim advocate to participate in trials that are prosecuted under the criminal code.

We need to move some forms of sexual misconduct from the criminal courts to civil courts because a judgement is based on the balance of probability. Credibility plays a larger part.

Victims must have access to legal aid representation when they can�t afford a lawyer. We need to put in place counselling services for victims.

At present we are witnessing an accused convicted by public opinion without due process. Our duty as a society is to find a balance where valid complaints are fairly heard and the charter and legal rights of both accused and accuser are protected including protecting a victim from retaliation.

We will not see a change in workplace harassment until perpetrators understand they can be facing a public court hearing or trial if they persist.

When Trudeau puts forth appropriate amendments to legislation, he will have some credibility on this file. Until then, he is just blowing smoke rings in an effort to look good.
