At our centre, we also provide something called accompaniment, which offers a survivor an opportunity to have somebody with some specialized knowledge go with them whenever they're accessing any of the different types of services, whether that be the hospital, the police station or the court process. Timelines are an issue, but I know that's not being addressed specifically with this bill.
As I said in my five minutes, one of the biggest concerns that people have is wondering how they will be treated, what they can expect and whether people will believe them. They know what happened and they know they can tell their own story, but they wonder if everybody else will see it the same way they do. Will everybody else understand what transpired? That is probably one of the biggest concerns that survivors have. Do they want to put themselves in a really vulnerable position, knowing that they might not get the outcome that they want—because there's often a lack of forensic evidence—and put themselves through years of potential revictimization and re-traumatization?
