Protecting women and girls is a national priority
Released by Robert Pearsall, PA to MP Mark Strahl
n the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women, Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP, Mark Strahl called on all constituents to work together to end violence against women.
"Everyone can play a role in eliminating violence against women and girls."
Strahl added, "We can all speak out on emerging forms of violence, such as
so-called honour-based violence and human trafficking."
More than $54 million has been approved since 2007 for projects that
specifically address violence against women and girls. By working at the
community level, the Conservative Government is improving the lives of women
