Canadian Judge Blames Victim For Getting Raped

'Why couldn't you just keep your knees together?'

A Canadian judge is currently under federal court review after 4 lawyers have pulled out statements from a 2014 court procedure. The council has announced they are currently reviewing the statements made by Justice Camp towards a sexual assault victim.

CBC - ''In the 11-page complaint, Elaine Craig, Jocelyn Downie, Jennifer Koshan and Alice Woolley said that in the 2014 case, Camp asked the complainant, "Why couldn't you just keep your knees together?" and, "Why didn't you just sink your bottom down into the basin so he couldn't penetrate you?"

"I have never seen a judgment, and certainly not one in the past decade, which showed such shocking statements that are so out of keeping with modern Canadian values." - Alice Woodley.

Absolutely ridiculous. As our Prime Minister states "This is 2015". Get your shit straight Canada.
