The Conversation About Sexual Assault Shouldn't Be Confined to Parliament Hill

As MPs and staffers come forward with sexual assault allegations and party leaders struggle to handle them with compassion and fairness, we're also given a glimpse into a world that isn't special at all, because it's all around us. If it can happen in the context of MPs from different parties on Parliament Hill, it can happen anywhere. So before this becomes any more of a political side-show, we should strive to focus on how although a public case of MPs allegedly being assaulted on the Hill is unusual, the violence is anything but.
