Statement made on 07 October 2009 by Senator Grant Mitchell
Hon. Grant Mitchell:
Honourable senators, United Nations Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security is internationally important and supported. Resolution 1325 has been endorsed by Canada and yet no one would know because Canada has not fulfilled even the most basic of its obligations: to prepare an action plan for the implementation of UN Resolution 1325.
My question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Other than the fact that the Prime Minister thinks that women are a left-wing fringe group, is there any another reason that this government halted work on that action plan such that Canada still does not have one?
