Statement on Al-Rawi verdict: Clearly a drunk person cannot consent

Statements made by provincial court Judge Gregory Lenehan in hisĀ March 1 acquittal of Halifax taxi driver Bassam Al-Rawi have drawn attention to the misconceptions that still exist around sexual violence.

Sexual Health Nova Scotia is committed to working to end sexual violence in this province. This work rests on the firm belief that consent must be clearly given, it must be affirmative, and it must be ongoing.
