What began five years ago as a B-C Lions program to raise awareness about violence against women has grown into a CFL-wide initiative.

Ending Violence Association of Canada Chairwoman Tracy Porteous was heavily involved in developing the program and describes it as a "huge" deal. (The CFL's new no-tolerance policy will apply to all league employees -- including staff and players -- as well as to members of the public on attending any CFL event or game.)
