“Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister claims to be a feminist, but on International Women's Day, he is content to merely re-announce old promises. If equality truly matters to the government it should fund women's reproductive health. The best way is to ensure all women have access to birth control. Such access reduces unintended pregnancy, abortion, is cost-saving, and a cornerstone to women's human rights.

Will the government take a stand for women and support my motion to make birth control free for women in Canada?â€�
