See Kathleen Finlay’s interview on CTV National News with Lisa LaFlamme

Suicide is becoming an epidemic among some population groups in Canada. Victims of gender-based violence and bullying are especially at risk, as are members of our indigenous communities. We call for a new approach and fresh thinking to address this public health crisis, including a national 988 hotline network that can save lives. It’s time for a national action strategy to save lives.

Kathleen Finlay’s latest op-ed in The Hill Times, calling for appointment of a
federal gender-based anti-violence Commissioner.

For more than a year, PatientProtection.Healthcare and the ZeroNow Campaign have called for federal action to address gender-based gaps in healthcare and in the well-being of victims of sexual violence. In Prime Minister Trudeau’s mandate letter of December 2019 to the Minister of Health, the federal government committed to developing an action plan to reduce gender-related health gaps. Kathleen Finlay’s Hill Times op-ed is part of a series of articles and commentaries that provide insight into a way forward that can produce genuine game-changing outcomes.
