Event Notes


After Ghomeshi: Sexual Assault & Canadian Law

The Jian Ghomeshi trial cast a Canada-wide spotlight on the topic of sexual violence, and raised the question of whether Canadian law needs to be modernized.

Former Crown prosecutor-turned-journalist Sandy Garossino joins the Salt Spring Forum to discuss this important question and more. This is the first event of the Forum’s Canada 150 series—a special series that explores the great challenges and opportunities facing Canada today.

Sandy Garossino is an associate editor at the National Observer and a powerful voice in Canadian public affairs. She is widely read for her commentary on politics, feminism and sexual assault. Her articles have also become “must reads” for anyone interested in Canadian law and policy.
