Thank you very much.

Mr. Wallace, we started a little late today. Do you have any final thoughts?

Mike Wallace Conservative Burlington, ON

I figure we're out of time. I have to be back on House duty. I only want to say to Madame that I'm married with two daughters and heavily invested in women in my house. I haven't seen any return yet, but I'm sure it will come.

Hélène Laverdière NDP Laurier—Sainte-Marie, QC

Mr. Chair, if I may, and speaking of women, I promise it's my last point of order. I would like to remind all members that today is the national day of remembrance and action on violence against women. As an MP representing a riding from Montreal, I know particularly well how important it is to remember and to work toward ending violence against women.

We were unable to attend the vigil today, since we were here in committee, but I would like to take this opportunity to urge all my colleagues, including my colleagues across the way, to reverse their position on the long-gun registry and to do what is right for the women of Canada.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.

10:45 a.m.


The Chair Conservative Dean Allison

Okay, thank you.

To our witnesses, thank you very much for being here today. We appreciate your time and your answers. It was very helpful for the discussion today. Thank you.

The meeting is adjourned.
