Any discussion about matters of sexual assault cases should ensure that victims who have been assaulted and wronged come forward, and that they are respected as they go through the process, from their first contact with the police right through to the courtroom. It's important they are assured that they are respected, that they are treated with dignity, and that their cases are tried fairly. As a judge, I'm always reticent to comment on legislation. That is in your domain, but I always welcome the chance to discuss it.
Mr. MacDonald, you may have something to say about the legislation.
