Peggy Sattler MPP, London West

Government of Ontario

Barb MacQuarrie, CREVAWC

Peggy Sattler continues to demonstrate her strong commitment to preventing and responding to gender-based violence, this time with her Safe Night Out Act. If passed the new legislation will not only provide bartenders, servers and their managers tools to recognize the signs of sexual harassment and assault and to intervene in an appropriate manner, it will provide much needed protection to workers through amendments to the Occupational Health and Safely Act. This is exemplary leadership to address one of the most nefarious problems facing our society.
