Statement made on 02 April 2009 by Senator Terry Mercer

Hon. Terry M. Mercer:

Honourable senators, all Canadians were distressed and disgusted with the news from Afghanistan that President Karzai has signed a law stripping women of rights that are common in this country and throughout the civilized world.

In the other place yesterday, in response to a question, Minister Stockwell Day, the Minister of International Trade, gave the following answer:

. . . our Prime Minister has expressed serious concerns with this Afghanistan law. Our Minister of Foreign Affairs has done that also and continues to do that.

My question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate is: When did the Minister of Foreign Affairs express serious concerns? How did he convey that message? How often did he convey the message? What is in the message that he conveyed to the Afghan government?
