‘Breaking the cycle’: MPs study intimate partner violence explosion amid COVID
In the first six months of 2021, 92 women and girls were killed, 14 more than in the same period the previous year, the Canadian Femicide Observatory reported.
Liberal MP Anju Dhillon introduced her private member's bill, C-233, on Feb. 7, in reaction to the surge of intimate partner violence cases that erupted during COVID-19. A similar public bill from Conservative Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu is making its way through the Red Chamber. Screenshot courtesy of ParlVu
