Cirque du Soleil Hits Lethbridge

October 31, 2018

Cirque du Soleil Corteo hit the stage in Lethbridge today with on of the company's most beloved shows. Corteo first premiered in Montreal in 2005 and has visited more than 60 cities in 19 different countries. It began as a Big Top show before transforming into an arena show in 2016. The current cast and crew of over 120 people are touring North America.

With May being the month of Sexual Violence Awareness, Lethbridge College brought in a speaker from Edmonton to educate the Sexual Violence Action Committee on ways to support victims of workplace harassment.

"Really, we just need to start from a place of believing people who come fourth with allegations of sexual harassment—it's the first step. When we act with disbelief, we make people feel unsupported, and unwilling to share more about what happened," says Sexual Violence Prevention educator Derek Warick

According to Canadian Business, 43 percent of women and 12 percent of men say they have been harassed at work.
