Freedom of conscience and religion, Office of Religious Freedom, Opposition motions

Bureau de la liberté de religion, Liberté de conscience et de religion,

Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate my colleague on her excellent speech on freedom of religion, its relationship to poverty, and our global commitment as a nation regarding these issues.

The Conservatives want us to continue with their program exactly as it is, without considering the question of freedom of religion as part of a broader human rights issue.

Can the member elaborate a little on why we need to look at freedom of religion through the broader lens of global human rights?

Monsieur le Président, je félicite ma collègue pour son très bon discours sur la liberté de religion, sur son lien avec la pauvreté et sur notre implication mondiale comme pays, relativement à ces questions.

Les conservateurs veulent que l'on garde leur programme en place tel quel, sans considérer la question de la liberté de religion comme faisant partie du plus grand enjeu des droits humains.

La députée peut-elle nous expliquer un peu pourquoi nous avons besoin d'examiner la liberté de religion à travers la lentille plus large des droits de la personne mondiaux?
