Statement made on 23 March 2010 by Senator Lucie Pépin (retired)
Hon. Lucie Pépin:
Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. It is about the Canadian G8 initiative on maternal health. It is an excellent idea, but its implementation seems improvised and contradictory statements from the cabinet are adding to the confusion.
How did the government come up with the maternal health plan that it will be proposing to its G8 partners? Was there a consultation process that included Canadian NGOs that focus on reproductive health services and family planning?
