Jenny in the House: Families told their truths at the National Inquiry. Will the Prime Minister honour this truth?

On June 4, 2019, I stood in Question Period to ask:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, families told their truths. Sophie Merasty, who lost her sister Rose, said, “We have always known this was a genocide....The violence we face happens in all aspects of our lives—at every level, in every institution, in every interaction.”

On behalf of all Canadians, will the Prime Minister honour this truth and state clearly that Canada committed genocide against indigenous women and girls and 2SLGBTQQIA people? Will he commit to implementing all recommendations from the inquiry, with dedicated resources and a timeline that is accountable to the public?"
