As the next leader o the NDP, I will ensure women’s equality is a central theme ineverything we do.Under my leadership, the NDP will ght to link social/economic equality and economicadvancement or all Canadians, and to make meaningul investments in equality.For example, the creation and protection o good paying jobs is at the heart o mycommitments – such opportunities and the tax base they generate are critical to a strongsocial saety net and thereby, integral to women’s equality.To support the renewal o Canada’s women’s movement and agenda or women’sequality, I want to hear rom women throughout Canada, ampliy their voices, and heedtheir wisdom. While respecting provincial jurisdiction, we will launch an action plan orequality and act decisively to:
Reinstate the ederal gun registry and legislate protection o the data it collects andencompasses.
Focus on violence against Aboriginal, Métis, and Inuit women and girls, which to datehas been so ineectively addressed in Canada:
provide increased support to NAOs and campaigns like Sisters in Spirit;
launch a comprehensive national action plan to combat violence against Aboriginal,Métis, and Inuit women and girls;
remedy police and government ailure to protect, investigate, and prosecute thevarious orms o violence endured by women in these communities;
pursue integrated measures that serve to eliminate the related social andeconomic inequities which place Aboriginal, Métis, and Inuit women at a chronicdisadvantage.
