Saskatchewan Premier Writes To Harper Concening Afghan Law Against Women's Rights
Violence against women, in any society, is a plague that affects everyone. It must be identified, condemned loudly and eliminated. Zero tolerance is not only a goal, it is a necessity. Any violence against women by men, is NOT negotiable. It is not acceptable.
Whether Brad Wall issued his letter for domestic political reasons, or not, does not overly concern me. Every man who speaks out in opposition to violence against women, should be noted and commended.
This having been said, it should also be noted that Mr. Wall leads a province which has a dismal record when it comes to aboriginal women who have gone missing, likely the victims of violence. All previous governments of this province should ask themselves what they accomplished in making life safe and secure for women.
Having commented on the situation in Afghanistan, it is time to look a bit closer at home and to ensure that all women in the province of Saskatchewan can live their lives without the fear of any violence - whatever that takes to accomplish.
