a little bit of my coffee went through my nose as I was reading Retired Peer Support Coordinator Fred Doucette statement in the Veterans Affairs Committee on Oct. 4th, 2016 transcript.
Five or six in 10 years?!
Fred Doucette admitted to only have dealt with five or six sexual assault cases in his 10 years with the Operational stress injury support program.
Only 5 or 6 people with Military sexual trauma in 10 years? I got over 95 entries in one year!
the "Hidden thing"
Is it really because ‘’It’s a hidden thing’’?. Or is it because we just make sure to keep it hidden?
Since I wasn't invited to these talks, I will share some info here...
I am sure all intentions were noble here. You can only provide inputs on what you know and saw. It's just a shame that no Canadian expert exist out there to provide deciders with more than an educated guess.
I will at least agree with the last thing you said: ‘’ It's terrible, and it's something that DND has to look at. They can't sweep it under the table anymore.’’
