Cathy-Hird-ForgivenessBy Cathy Hird
Last week, the Violence Prevention Grey Bruce Committee hosted a round table discussion on preventing sexual violence in our community. This gathering of community people and professionals talked openly about a subject that we often find hard to bring to the surface.
