RCMP reviews sexual assault cases, comments from the outgoing Chief Justice and Calgary police morale.

Canada’s national police force has announced an expanded review of closed sexual assault cases, with the rise of the #metoo movement. The RCMP plan to review approximately 25,000 sexual assault files dating back to 2015 in cases where no charges were laid. The decision to review the cases followed a report into sexual assault files from 2016, out of 2,225 cases reviewed police decided 284 required further investigation.

Guest on our Crime Panel include: Steven Penney, professor at the University of Alberta; Matthew Deshaye, defence lawyer and Kevin Martin, court reporter for Postmedia.
