The policy, which contains guidelines to help police investigate such complaints, is the best in the country, said Tamara Gorin, a spokeswoman for the Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres.
But it's not adhered to, she charged.
"(Since it was implemented) conviction rates haven't increased and women are still having the same problems getting police response," she said.

Rape Drugs, Rohypnol, GHB, gamma-hydroxybuterate

But GHB and another date-rape drug called Rohypnol are no more dangerous to women's safety than other drugs that men use in combination with alcohol to rape women, said Tamara Gorin, a project worker with the Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres.
"What we have found is that In the majority of rapes occurring where drugs have been used, Rohypnol and GHB are minuscule in comparison,: she said yesterday. GHB is dangerous, she said. A man could easily slip the odourless, tasteless, clear liquid into a woman's drink, causing her to lose consciousness within about 15 minutes. But the street drug is more commonly used to mediate the effects of withdrawal between highs from cocaine or heroin, Ms. Gorin said.
As for Rohypnol, Ms. Gorin said the manufacturer of the prescription drug has changed its formula so that it does not dissolve completely and is blue - making it easier to detect in drinks.
The more common drugs used in rape cases are regular but powerful prescription drugs such as sleeping pills, Ms. Gorin said.
"We've been arguing to the police, and trying to get out to the public, that the use of drugs to facilitate rape is not new. . A number of drugs are used in combination with alcohol to incapacitate women and make it :easier for men to succeed in raping them," Ms. Gorin said from Vancouver. "We try to ask that the focus not be specifically on GHB and Rohypnol, but that the focus go on to all kinds of medication, and all kinds of drugs being used to facilitate rape."
It's irresponsible for police to respond to a seizure of GHB by telling women to be more careful in bars, she said.
