Is There Enough Help?

Helen Morrison - Executive Director of Transition House

The Rehtaeh Parsons case has many people wondering if enough help is available for rape victims. Parsons committed suicide and her family says she was raped two years ago by four boys.

Charges were never laid because police say there was not enough evidence.

Morrison spoke with CBC's Joan Weeks about the challenges facing rape victims in this area.
