Mr. Speaker, enough is enough. That is the appeal being made by AFEAS. Ms. Mariette Gilbert, president of the organization, launched the 11th annual campaign to raise awareness about violence under the banner Opération Tendre la main.
The objective of the campaign is to denounce the murders of spouses, children and parents, which all too often make the headlines. In memory of such tragic events, Ms. Gilbert is asking everyone to wear a white ribbon during Opération Tendre la main, being held from November 25 to December 9.
The purpose of this campaign is to promote practices that respect the individual in interpersonal or professional relations and remind us that violence can take many forms, whether committed against young people, women or the elderly. AFEAS wants to make us aware of this daily, and often silent, violence in order to build a violence-free society.
Ms. Gilbert, my colleagues and I share your stand that enough is enough.
