Article Information

Background There was a sexual assault near a transit station in Ottawa.
Reason Since Hollaback! Ottawa has been leading a city-wide discussion about street harassment, we were the go-to for comment.
Comment It sucks that the issue is continuously Hollaback! vs. OC Transpo, but the idea of 'playing nice in the sand box' to get ahead is incredibly naive.
Outcome Always great to get our message of bystander intervention and community-based safety planning out there!
