In a CBC Radio commentary [audio link] Heather Davis - a former co-ordinator of the women’s centre in Corner Brook – criticises the Advisory Council on the Status of Women and its president Linda Ross for Ross’ recent comments about violence against women:
Everyone is demanding answers after a recent murder suicide, notes Davis, everyone except the provincial organization whose job that is.
Davis says there is a “disconnect” between the provincial advisory council and local women’s groups. She identifies the cause: the provincial government - maybe the minister responsible – decided to appoint the president rather than follow past practice and leave it to women’s groups in the province to recommend the right person to head the advisory council.
