Mr. Speaker, this morning, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Canadian Heritage announced, together with heads of Canadian broadcasting corporations, the launch of a national campaign against violence under the theme "Violence, You Can Make a Difference".
This campaign will last throughout the year and emphasize violence against women and children. This multimedia project is aimed at making people aware of the impact of violence on viewers, and of the means available to us to put an end to it.
This project was made possible thanks to the cooperation of a number of federal departments, radio and television networks, community organisations, and Cossette Communication-Marketing. We are pleased to be part of this important initiative, and we urge people to join us in this vast operation to stamp out violence.
