Eastern Ontario triple homicides highlights domestic violence culture of silence

The recent domestic homicides in the Ottawa Valley show the most awful consequence of intimate partner violence: the wonderful lives of women we lose. The history of abuse that precedes it has a wide-ranging impact on the entire community.  

And sadly, for every case that ends in homicide, there are countless women being hurt, being told they are worthless, being stalked, or being forbidden to access their money. They are in relationships where their partner threatens their children, their pets, their family, or their autonomy.
