Statement on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

Today we join the international community in calling for an end to violence against women. In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly designated November 25th as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Violence against women is a violation of human rights and a consequence of ongoing gender inequalities.

Dear Premier Christy Clark,

I would like to congratulate you on the investments in the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) in Budget 2013. The multi-million dollar investment was unique. While other ministries and agencies had their funding untouched or reduced, your
commitment to implementing the recommendations of the ALC’s 2010 core review is an important investment in British Columbia.

Following the election this spring the minister of the core review, Hon. Bill Bennett’s comments raised considerable concerns when he suggested to a reporter, that despite the work that had been done, the core review would include the ALC.
