Statement about Kevin Vuong's Campaign, September 17, 2021

 

As someone who has worked to end gender-based violence, and who has my own experiences of sexual violence like so many other women, I believe that we need to take a zero-tolerance approach to coercive behavior. No one should ever be the recipient of unwanted sexual behaviours. We need to ensure that there is an environment of accountability so that everyone feels safe coming forward.

It is difficult and disappointing to hear about the allegations related to Kevin Vuong, but, I am grateful to see that the candidate's campaign has been paused while this serious matter is addressed. 

As someone who is new to formal politics, I’m committed to making sure it’s a safe space for myself and others and continuing the important ongoing work of combatting sexual violence and harassment in all its forms.
