Crisis centre demands changes to address domestic violence

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

With 13 BC women allegedly attacked by their partners in the last six months, and only a handful surviving, the head of the Vancouver Rape Relief Crisis Centre says we need to do more.

Daisy Kler says the government’s Office of Domestic Violence, that has no legislative power, are doing training around the province but she says that is not where change is going to happen.

“We’ve told them directly that training is not the answer to make violence against women there’s got to be some changes within the criminal justice system.”

Kler says money needs to go to those services not into more provincial offices.

A Surrey man is charged with trying to kill his wife on the weekend and murder charges were laid today against a 38 year old from Coquitlam whose wife died yesterday.
