"ACTRA's leadership is committed to equality and ensuring that Canada’s Parliament reflects Canada’s diversity. As a country, we have made significant progress but we know there is much more to do. ACTRA supports this legislation because instead of simply talking about the problem, it proposes a solution: if a political party doesn't take gender equality seriously, then that party shouldn't expect a public subsidy. That's putting our money where our mouth is. That's something our union is proud to support."
