Canada's federal ombudsman for the victims of crime, Sue O'Sullivan, has called a press conference in Ottawa Tuesday morning to give Canadians her take on the government's recently tabled victims bill of rights, known as Bill C-32.
CBCNews.ca is carrying the event live as of 10 a.m. ET.

On April 3, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced legislation — the victims bill of rights act — to give victims of crime a more effective voice in the criminal justice system.
O'Sullivan initially welcomed the bill when it was presented last month and said she would take time to review it.
She also said the bill does not cover all the areas that victims say need attention.
