As a trauma survivor, I think the fact that Camosun has had no formal way to report incidents of sexualized violence on campus is ridiculous. With close to 10,000 full-time students enrolled at Camosun and the statistic that one in three women are assaulted, I find it hard to believe that absolutely nobody has been […]
