Quebec DeclarationPublished on 16 December 2009 Hansard and Statements by Senator Claudette Tardif (retired)
Hon. Claudette Tardif (Deputy Leader of the Opposition):
Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate.
Today and tomorrow, Minister Josée Verner will chair the 25th Ministerial Conference of La Francophonie in Paris. During the conference, representatives of member states of the International Organization of La Francophonie will decide on priority areas for multilateral francophone action and discuss matters including the implementation of the declaration adopted at the October 2008 Quebec Summit.
Can the government leader tell us how the government plans to implement the Quebec Summit declaration?
