A temporary hotline for reporting sexual assault that was set up by Montreal Police received over 50 calls in the first two days since it was activated.
According to SPVM, the line got 43 calls on Thursday, October 19, and 1o calls early on the early morning of Friday, October 20.
The number for the hotline is 514-280-2079. It is in service from 7 am to 10 pm, Monday to Friday. If you wish to make a call on the weekend, you can do so at any time by dialling 911.
The hotline was set up after the recent sexual assault allegations made in Hollywood against producer Harvey Weinstein and the recent cases in Montreal involving Éric Salvail and Just For Laughs founder and president Gilbert Rozon.
