Will Budget 2018 Take Concrete Action for Women's Equality?
MP Malcolmson questions the Trudeau Liberals in the House of Commons

The Liberal budget is a golden opportunity for the current government to show real action on women's equality. Over the last two years we have heard many fine words, but sadly very little investment into true gender equality.
Immediate funding is needed this year for pay equity, for child care, and for domestic violence shelters. This is long overdue and would have the biggest impact on the lives of women.
Today I stood in the House to ask the Prime Minister, will the budget spend on concrete actions now, not just talk, to truly help women in this country get ahead?
