CONTRACT FOR VICTIMS A MISTAKE, UNIVERSITY SAYS

-

A Manitoba university says it will no longer ask alleged victims of sexual violence and harassment to sign behavioura­l contracts. President Gervan Fearon of Brandon University says the school made a mistake when it asked a female student in September 2015 to sign the contract. The document, made public this week, required the woman not to contact her alleged attacker or talk about the incident with anyone but a counsellor. Fearon says the university did encourage the woman to go to police and the contract was not meant to silence her.
