Mr. Speaker, today, December 10, is Human Rights Day.
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” These famous few words established the fundamental principle of international human rights law 60 years ago.
Yet today, the fight against discrimination remains a daily struggle for millions around the globe. Every one of us can make a difference, like our leader, who introduced Bill C-471 and said that equal pay for work of equal value is a basic human right that should never be subject to negotiation.
We must be united in the fight to end discrimination.
Liberals, like our leader, are in it for all Canadians and in it to end discrimination.
