Senator Enverga questions government absence in March for Life

Hon. Tobias C. Enverga, Jr.: I have a question for the leader and, of course, happy birthday to you, Your Honour!

Mr. Leader, life is the most fundamental right of every Canadian. Right now, there are thousands upon thousands out there marching for life. I was so proud to join my fellow Senators Unger and Doyle outside.

My question is: Why is it that no member of the government is marching for life?

Hon. Peter Harder (Government Representative in the Senate): I appreciate the question, honourable senator, but I am not in a position to answer whether or not any government officials were part of the activities on the front lawn. I certainly heard them, but I have no information to bring forward at this time.
