Article Information

Background Ottawa's 'serial rapist' has been apprehended.
Reason The Ottawa Citizen wanted to write a piece on the context of the arrest and the community's reaction.
Comment This is one of the best articles on sexual violence I've ever seen in a local paper. She allowed me to hit all the main 'teaching moments' from cases like this. (ie: challenging stereotype of who a perpetrator is, challenging 'stranger danger', importance of bystander intervention, etc.)
Outcome Here's hoping articles like this are more common!
