Victoria, Vancouver rank high for gender equality, but study says all Canadian cities need to improve

Victoria, Vancouver rank high for gender equality, but study says all Canadian cities need to improve The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives released its fifth annual study looking at which cities are the best and worst for women, scoring metro areas on access to economic security, personal security, education, health and leadership positions. Kingston, Ont., was ranked No. 1 while Barrie, Ont., was ranked last. Among B.C. cities, Victoria (third) and Vancouver (fifth) ranked best. However, the centre noted there was not a big difference between the first and last place finishers — which they say is a signal that all need to make improvements.

A woman who is accused of letting her dog die after she left it in a car last July has been charged with animal cruelty.

Stephanie Skinner of Victoria has been charged with causing an animal to continue to be in distress under B.C.'s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

The B.C. SPCA says Skinner left her dog, a Boston terrier, in a car for seven hours on July 23, 2018. All of the windows were closed and temperatures in the area reached 30 C that day. When she returned to the vehicle, the dog was dead.

If convicted, Skinner faces a $75,000 fine, up to two years in jail and up to a lifetime ban on owning animals.

In a release, Eileen Drever with the B.C. SPCA called the incident "tragic and preventable."

"Even 10 minutes in a hot, unventilated car can be fatal for an animal — an animal left for seven hours in those temperatures would not have stood a chance," Drever said.

Skinner is scheduled to make her first court appearance on March 28.
