Canada: Many Abused Women in Danger of Being Killed - Research Study:  A 
recently released study by the University of Calgary and YWCA Canada 
found that more than three-quarters of Canadian women seeking refuge 
from domestic abuse are in danger of being killed.  The study examines 
both the nature of the abuse faced by women and the vital services that 
protect them. "The report's recommendations call for comprehensive 
social supports that go beyond shelter walls."  For more information
