Sarah Leamon: Christian ministers don’t require their own special section in the Criminal Code

One of which is the perception that victims cannot properly access justice through our existing criminal justice system. In an attempt to address this, our federal government has introduced amendments to the Criminal Code. These amendments are embodied...
