Ellected Ep. 20 - MP Randall Garrison
Welcome to Ellected – the podcast about women in politics, by women in politics.
In the first episode of season two of Ellected, the first guest is indeed a first – the first man to be a guest on the podcast. Federal NDP MP Randall Garrison’s Bill C-202 An Act to Amend the Criminal Code (Coercive Control) will give law enforcement and the courts an additional tool to prevent harm to women and those that are the victims of coercive control in intimate partner and domestic violence.
Randall and Sarah discuss why it’s important to understand what coercive control is, and why he believes it’s important to update the criminal code to include it.
