"Innumerable studies highlight not only the excruciatingly slow pace of change when it comes to women's numerical representation across all levels of elected office in Canada, but also how, in many cases, progress has 'stalled.' Research from around the world also indicates that substantial change can only come through the implementation of "positive action" measures. Bill C-237 offers a new and exciting response as it encourages Canadian parties to reform themselves and work to create a more equitable, diverse and democratic House of Commons. This creative initiative is laudable and deserves wide ranging support, in and outside Parliament."
