Jenny asked her colleague, NDP MP Lindsay Mathyssen, for her comment on the need for justice and accountable action, with allocated resources, for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls:

"Madam Speaker, I congratulate my colleague on being elected to the House of Commons. I also thank her predecessor, Irene Mathyssen, for the incredible work she did in her many years here as well.

The member mentioned many things in her speech. As a strong advocate for women's rights, on the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls, I would like to see the government take real action, first to commit to implementing all the calls for justice and to ensure there is accountability with action and a timeline and resources allocated to it.

I wonder if the member could comment on that."
