RCMP getting $10 million to re-activate 'unfounded' sexual assault cases

The 2018 federal budget is taking political cues from the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, setting aside $187 million over the next five years to combat gender-based violence, harassment and discrimination.

In his speech to the House today, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said the two movements "shed light on disturbing situations and behaviours that too often go unreported."

Morneau's new budget provides the RCMP with $10 million, and $2 million per year ongoing, to establish a national unit that will coordinate the review of nearly 25,000 sexual assault cases that were dropped by investigators as "unfounded."
