It allows women to access information about their partner’s past history of domestic violence, so that women can leave potentially abusive situations, Squires said.

“We know that far too many women are killed at the hands of their intimate partners in Manitoba – in fact, four women tragically lost their lives last year,” she said.

“We have more work to do to protect women from violence, and a re-elected PC government will do that work.”
