Ms. Anne Minh-Thu Quach (Salaberryâ€”SuroÃ®t, NDP):
Mr. Speaker, over a year ago, the Minister of Status of Women received an application from Justice alternative du SuroÃ®t for support to a project that would enable three large regions of Quebec to develop safety nets for sexually exploited girls and young women.
Out of 4,000 runaways at youth centres in Quebec, 76% are girls, and 30% of them have been sexually exploited or exposed to prostitution. The project could prevent hundreds of women from suffering sexual abuse.
When will the minister sign it and give this project the green light?
