Thank you, Madam Chair.
I'd like to thank the witnesses for coming out today. You brought some very interesting statistics.
There's one question I want to ask you, and then I keep thinking maybe I shouldn't ask you, but I will leave that towards the end.
I'm finding your graph number 3 very interesting. I'm either confused or I'm going to be shocked at what your answer is going to be.
According to the 2014 GSS, 6% of women who were victims of spousal violence in the provinces reported that they had contacted or used a shelter, transition home....
That's what you say on that line. Then you're telling me that we have 12,058 beds across Canada and that 51% of the women were turned away, and I'm trying to do the math here.
It's already shocking that we need 24,000 beds. We know that. That tells us that right off the bat, but what it tells me is that it's only 6%, and if 6% is 12,058, where am I missing the math here, folks? It's a little confusing to me. Either we're drastically under-bedded or there's a lot more going on there than we realize. According to your statistic, it's telling me that there's a lot more going on than we really realized. Can you answer that?
