Mr. Speaker, in recent months, there has been quite a bit of misinformation in the media about Status of Women Canada.
We have succeeded in making administrative savings of $5 million at Status of Women Canada. This means $5 million more for women, in addition to many other measures this government has taken for Canadian women and their families.
An independent assessment has revealed that when the Liberals were in power, it cost 31 cents to provide one dollar in funding for women. This is unacceptable both for women and for taxpayers in general.
We are investing in supporting women, not in creating more bureaucracy.
I am happy to announce that the first grant under the new conditions, worth $49,140, has been awarded to an agency that will provide sex trade workers with tools to help them quit the industry.
On this side of the House, we are all working for the well-being of Canadian women.
