Madam Speaker, the fight to end violence against women is a critical issue for our country and one that requires action and political decisions. All leaders in the House of Commons and the Senate need to set partisanship aside and take a firm stand on this issue.

Will the government support Bill S-231 and Bill C-293 and help move them forward as quickly as possible before this session of Parliament ends?
