Yesterday British Columbia became the next province to pass a bill pertaining to the sexual assault policies of universities in BC. "Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson has tabled a bill making it mandatory for post-secondary institutions to put policies in place to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, harassment and voyeurism" (Excerpt from the News 1130 article, link can be found below). This bill has come to be from the anger and outrage from the community after the assaults at The University of British Columbia were highly publicized, and scrutinized. The bill requires all Universities to have a separate policy pertaining to sexual assault. It is modeled after the bill passed in Ontario requiring schools to have a separate policy and they provided a structured model for the schools to follow.If all post-secondary institutions have a policy, it will make it easier for campuses to deal with sexual assault and create a safer and more respectful environment for the victims. Hopefully this bill brings recognition to the issues within University and College campuses within BC pertaining to sexual assault, and can help start to create a solution.
