In Ontario when a domestic assault situation is called into police SOMEONE WILL BE ARRESTED. “Some are under the impression that when a woman is being abused by her male partner, all she has to do is call 911 and the police will arrive like knights in shining armour. This is not always the reality. Currently across Canada, one person or both involved in the violence are charged right away with a criminal offense, taken to jail and through a costly justice system.”  A woman charged says “We had no idea how the system worked, we had no one to turn to to find out what we should do. She had a part-time job, but earned too much for legal aid and too little to afford a lawyer.” Zero tolerance policies never, ever work but rather promote injustices.

Why doesn’t the justice system help abused women? |
