A podcast from the office of Kim Pate. Hosted by Kim Pate, an Independent Canadian Senator from Ontario and Reakash Walters, a community advocate and law student. We bring issues affecting folks on the margins, to the centre.
On this episode, we're unpacking labels like "victim" and "criminal". We speak with Canada's Ombudsman for Victims of Crime, Margot Van Sluytman, a poet and writer whose father was murdered at his workplace when she was a child, and Shannon Moroney, a bestselling author whose husband forcibly confined and raped other women.
