Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the member for Dorval—Lachine—LaSalle for her important question.
I want to take this opportunity to condemn the acts of discrimination that were committed this past weekend in North York and Montreal.
On February 9, 2017, I had the opportunity to announce a call for projects through the community interactions program.
Our government will dedicate $5.5 million per year to organizations that submit projects to work toward the elimination of discrimination and racism.
We have said it many times, diversity is our strength and inclusion is a value that we as Canadians hold dear. We will continue to work and to fight for these values.
