Women and Gender Equality  Madam Speaker, a recent Statistics Canada report shows that women are still much more likely than men to experience gender-based violence and unwanted sexual behaviour at work and at school. This type of behaviour is clearly unacceptable. Can the Minister for Women and Gender

Parks Canada  Madam Speaker, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in terms of finding the replacement for the Phoenix pay system. We rely on our public servants. They do the hard work. They are dedicated. They are the ones who deliver the programs and services that benefit all Canadi

Criminal Records Act  Mr. Speaker, I believe how it would work, at a provincial or municipal level, is that payment of those fines, if they are not granted amnesty on those fines, would be through civil recourse.

Criminal Records Act  Mr. Speaker, that is indeed one of the challenges, because we wanted to eliminate administrative fines related to these same convictions.
