The Honourable Noël A. Kinsella, Speaker

International Cooperation

Programs to End Obstetric Fistula

Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer: Honourable senators, my real question today is about fistula. I have a very detailed question. With the Senate’s and the leader’s permission, I will send it to her office instead of reading it all in detail here.

There is no way I would expect her to have an answer to that. That would not be reasonable, so may I please ask that, as soon as she is able, would she kindly tell me what Canada is doing to prevent fistula in Africa?

Hon. Marjory LeBreton (Leader of the Government): I look forward to your long, detailed question, Senator Jaffer, and I will certainly make every effort to provide an answer before we break for the summer.
