Domestic Violence Accord Cited as an Example for the Rest of BC

Twenty groups signed a “Domestic Violence Accord” in Castlegar last week, outlining protocols for each agency in the event a woman should ask for help. Leanna Kozak of Castlegar RCMP Victim Services and Kris Taks of the Castlegar and District Community Services Society spearheaded the accord, which they started talking about a year and a half ago within the Violence Against Women in Relationships committee.
