The inquest jury has set up an independent committee and has passed the federal criminal law to femicide. Prevention of death from violence by intimate partners, including requesting the addition of.

Closing the third week of Friday, this inquest is tasked with preventing the death of a close partner in the countryside from violence.

Carol Kaleton, Anastasia Kujik, and Natalie Warmerdam were stalking Kaleton on the morning of September 22, 2015, convicted of domestic violent crimes against Warmerdam and Kujik. Killed in Renfrew County by Basil Boltsky. ..

The proposed recommendation was made by a "standing party" in an inquest. This includes the end of violence against Valerie, the daughter of Warmer Dam, and women in Renfrew County, a coalition of groups advocating organizational change.

"We were awake until 3 am. We need to sleep a little, but we still have something to do," Valerie Warmerdam told the jury.

Over the past three weeks in Pembroke, jury members ranged from frontline workers attending the day of murder to scholars studying violence against women. I heard from a witness.

The proposed recommendations include oversight, including the creation of an independent committee to ensure that governments and other organizations act in an accountable and transparent manner on issues related to violence against women. And five about accountability were included.

"I want all of us to have the tools to ensure that the work done by all of us and you all has an impact," said the lawyer for the end of violence against women. Kirsten Mercer told the jury.

Among other recommendations:

• Support services for victims of violence, including emergency funding for women facing security barriers. Secure consistent and adequate funding for. This includes easy, low-barrier access to small grants of up to $ 7,000 to cover everything women consider necessary for safety.

"We don't want to tell women what safety needs to look like," Mercer said. "But we want to remove the barriers they face in making choices to make them and their children safer."

Services also receive stable core funding. is needed. The recommendations state that per capita funding means that it is more expensive to provide services in remote or rural areas because distance is involved.

• Expand educational programs to prevent violence, understand risk factors, and identify signs of compulsory control. According to Mercer, these should be available from primary school to higher education institutions.

"We want to take every opportunity to try to eradicate the sexism and misogyny that underlie the violence of our close partners," she said. "We want to challenge those ideas from the beginning with our children."

Suggestions are for professionals and people working in the judicial system. I also worked on training for. This should include a review course and a trauma-based method that recognizes that the victim may have a reason to withdraw or refuse cooperation.

• Consider measures to assist the perpetrator, such as making services available to men before they are charged or convicted.

Valerie Warmerdam considers jury trials to address several factors known to influence the spread of violence, including financial instability, housing insecurity, and substance use. I asked you to do it.

"When someone is already on the path of domestic violence, additional factors such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal tendencies may become unstable and act on existing patterns. I've heard that can be higher, a more dangerous way, "she said.

• Conduct a survey of interpersonal violence disclosure protocols. A law known as "Claire's Law" has already been introduced in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador, allowing women concerned about their new partners to request background information from police. increase. Each jurisdiction has a different version of its law.

• Consider using a GPS monitoring bracelet to notify police and victims when criminals get too close. It's not a panacea, and there are local restrictions, says Prab Rajan, an adviser to the coroner's office. “I think we need to study a little more.”

• Conduct a forced charging review in Ontario. Police should prosecute if there is reasonably reasonable reason to believe that domestic violence has occurred. However, inquests have heard that women who protect themselves may be prosecuted, and that some victims do not want to be prosecuted to put them at greater risk.

• If a criminal on probation with a weapon changes his place of residence, notify the Firearms Secretary as soon as possible. Crown also needs to ask if there is a firearm in the house while considering a person to act as a guarantor during the bail process.

• Probation officers continue to enforce probationary conditions, give criminals clear expectations, and recognize that ignoring probationary conditions is a risk factor for recidivism. To request.

• Clarify privacy laws and regulations. Ontario Privacy Commissioners need to develop easy-to-understand language tools to help intimate partner experts, from police to lawyers, better understand how to balance laws and regulations with public safety. I have.

• Dangerous criminals of law to consider adding the term "femicide" to the criminal law to the federal government and include a new classification that takes risk factors into account. Ask them to consider amending the terms. Because of the violence of an intimate partner.

I heard that the prosecutor is facing the challenge of applying for a dangerous criminal to the perpetrator in a violent incident by a close partner. Perhaps the new classification will capture the risks associated with these perpetrators, Mercer told the jury.

• Consider including femicide as a method of death in Ontario. Inquests have heard that intimate violence and femicide are forms of misogyny-based gender-based violence. This will recognize the clear method of death that women have experienced to be women, Leslie Roam, chief inquest officer, told the jury.

• Parties standing in the inquest will be reconvened a year later to discuss progress.

"We just want to make sure things are happening," Rajan told the jury.

The jury will submit its own list of recommendations on Tuesday.
