May 14, 2019

Lethbridge has the third largest urban green space in all of Canada. Only Toronto and Edmonton are ahead. That means there are dozens of species of wildlife live right here among us. The city wants to better understand how wildlife utilizes and cohabitates with the growing population of our city, and Lethbridge College students have been quick to jump on the research. Jeannette Rocher explains.

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.
