CSU calls on sexual assault policy overhaul 

The CSU has joined the Human Rights Commission calling on Concordia to change how it handles allegations of sexual assault. 

The Human Rights Commission called the system overly rigid, limiting victim’s access to justice. 

The CSU published a list of recommendations for the university, including an overhaul of how complaints are received,

as well as improved access to mental health services for victims. 


Hundreds gather denouncing sexual assault

Hundreds of protestors gathered in downtown Montreal calling for action against sexual assaulters. 

This after a wave of allegations of assault and harassment in Quebec’s music and tattoo industries, as well as towards the leader of the Bloc Quebecois. 

Yves-Francois Blanchet has denied accusations that he assaulted a woman in a bar in the late 90’s.


We could already be in a COVID-19 second wave

Quebec saw a monthly record in new COVID-19 cases this weekend. 

Coronavirus cases have been on the rise since the beginning of July.

Experts blame the uptick on recent house parties and the opening of bars.

On Saturday, the province introduced new rules making masks mandatory in all indoor public spaces.
