Thank you. Mr. Chair.
Thank you ladies, for being here with us this evening.
I wanted to ask you about the red flag provisions on which we've heard several different points of view. I understand some of what you have been mentioning. Rather than ask why you are against measures of this kind, I will focus on your proposals.
Ms. Riendeau, your organization, and several other women's groups, signed a letter dated May 7 requesting that red flag measures be removed from the bill. In their place, you said that the proper use of existing mechanisms in the system, such as the person of interest criterion in connection with firearms, should be encouraged. For example, members of the community, including health professionals, should be encouraged to report any red flag situation.
A little earlier, I asked Dr. Kapur about Anastasia's law, a Quebec statute that you are probably familiar with. It allows health professionals to report any situation, as soon as they have suspicions. Do you think that the presence across Canada of that kind of legislative measure could be more beneficial than red flag measures like the ones included in Bill C‑21?
