Hon. Anita Neville (Winnipeg South Centre, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, the Conservative government scrapped the national child care agreement. It scrapped the court challenges program. It scrapped the Kelowna accord. It made cuts to women's advocacy and literacy. It bargained away women's rights to pay equity. It took meaningful equality out of the mandate of Status of Women Canada and continued to defy international commitments. That does not sound like a government that stands up for the rights of women.
When are we going to see any real commitment from the government for the women of Canada?
Hon. Helena Guergis (Minister of State (Status of Women), CPC):
Mr. Speaker, it does not matter how many times the member makes up crazy stories, they are not believed by women across the country.
