Mr. Speaker, today, the World March of Women will complete its relay of the women's global charter for humanity.
The relay will end in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, one of the poorest countries in the world. The women of this country will unite to remind the world that women are calling for the eradication of poverty and violence against women. Together, they will call for a world based on equality, freedom, solidarity, justice and peace.
The public is invited to take part in activities being held throughout Quebec and show its support for these five values.
The Bloc Québécois wants to pay tribute to the women behind the World March of Women for their determination to build a more egalitarian world for humanity.
