Description

Many Canadians were shocked on Sunday when media personality Jian Ghomeshi was fired from the CBC. He later posted a letter on Facebook detailing personal sexual activities, saying that he was been terminated because "this type of sexual behavior was unbecoming of a host on the CBC”. The Toronto Star published an article earlier this week where it spoke with four anonymous sources making allegations against against Ghomeshi. Today - a similar article, now with eight sources, including actor Lucy Decoutere. No matter what you’re opinion is the Jian Ghomeshi story has Canadians talking. And among those conversations are larger issues. Reports show that only ten percent of few victims of sexual assault report the assaults to police. Aileen Doyle explores why and what needs to change.
