The following news was buried in a December 23 article in the Globe:
“Spousal violence is a widespread and unfortunate social reality that has an effect on all Canadians,” says the 145-page report, completed this fall and obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.
The study is the third produced by Justice Canada since 2011 on the comprehensive cost of crime, all using similar methodology.
The first looked at the economic impact of all reported crimes in 2008 ($99.6-billion); the second, the costs of gun-related crime in 2008 ($3.1-billion). The latter was never published, given the politically charged subject matter, but was obtained earlier this year by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.”
