Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Will the Government stand up to hatred and racism?

On January 31, 2017, Jenny stood to ask this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Madam Speaker, the member, of course, is correct when he said that people make their own choices. The United States has, and it has actually put forward a ban based on race, religion, and place of birth.

We have a choice as Canadian representatives and leaders of our own communities. The choice is before us. Will we be bystanders and say that this is okay, business as usual, and just carry on and be calm, or are we going to say no to this hatred and this divisive kind of policy? Are we going to actually hold true to what we all saw and said in the House in light of the Quebec City horrible incident, that we will stand with those who face hate, that we will challenge it, and we will put a path forward?

Will the member support the NDP proposals that we have tabled today?"
