Burns Lake residents discuss gender-based violence

The College of New Caledonia (CNC) and the Elizabeth Fry Society have recently hosted an event to discuss gender-based violence at the CNC Lakes District campus. Approximately 25 women attended the event on Dec. 6, which is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Guest speakers and participants shared experiences, remembered victims and discussed solutions. Community organizations working to prevent and respond to violence against women and children across B.C. will be receiving a $5 million boost from the B.C. government to help reduce waitlists for some of the most vulnerable seeking care. Although the Elizabeth Fry Society is expected to receive some of this funding, no further details were available by press time. (Flavio Nienow & submitted photos)
