BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson Characterizes Domestic Violence as ‘Tough Marriage’

During a Red FM radio interview yesterday, BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson characterized those fleeing violence as “people who are in a tough marriage” – his response to BC NDP’s pledge to provide five days of paid leave for people leaving domestic or sexual violence. The Ending Violence Association of BC (EVA BC) responded on our Twitter and Facebook feeds with the hashtag #MoreThanAToughMarriage, sparking responses on social and mainstream media, including:
