Mr. Speaker, Bev Jacobs said on this floor, “Women have taken the brunt of it all”.
I know she spoke from the heart because Bev Jacobs recently lost a cousin, Tashina General, to violence.
Wednesday she asked:
What is it that this government is going to do in the future to help our people? Because we are dealing with major human rights violations that have occurred to many generations: my language, my culture and my spirituality.
What will the government do to end violence against aboriginal women?
