Domestic Violence and the death of Hunter Straight-Smith

  • December 05, 2019

On October 30, 2019 the news of an innocent 3 year old child being stabbed in his bed while he slept rocked the city of Winnipeg. He died three days later and as news of this horric crime came to light and the history of Intimate Partner Violence between the child’s mother and his killer came to light – the keyboard warriors of social media went on the attack looking to place blame…

This isn’t about blame, it is about responsibility – OUR responsibility as a society to keep the conversations going so that we can bridge the gaps that failed this child, this family and prevent another tragedy from ever happening again.

Domestic violence and abuse has not disappeared from our communities, we just don’t talk about it – and if we don’t talk about it, we can never fix it.

Let’s talk.
