"Sharia Law has been rejected in parliament, consistently. Also, we have zero tolerance on honour killings and barbaric practices, as well as early and forced marriages, and polygamy."
Rona Ambrose, Canada’s Health Minister
“Violence against women and girls is a heinous abuse of human rights and has no place in Canadian society. The Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act sends a clear message that any form of harmful cultural practices is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. I am proud that our Government continues to take strong action to ensure the equality, safety and security of women and girls in communities all across Canada.”
