Mr. Bill Casey (Cumberland—Colchester, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, I note that you are the second speaker from Nova Scotia, and we are very pleased about that.
I have the honour to present, in both official languages, the 29th report of the Standing Committee on Health, entitled “Violence Facing Health Care Workers in Canada”.
This was an amazing study we did on violence against health care workers, people who are there to help people. We made nine important recommendations, ranging from investing in best practices to prevent violence faced by health care workers to working with the provinces and territories to update the pan-Canadian health human resource strategy. Over five meetings, we heard 21 witnesses, who gave insightful and heartfelt testimony about their experience in the health care field.
Pursuant to Standing Order 109, the committee requests that the government table a comprehensive response to this report. We wish health care workers all the best.
I want to thank our committee. All members from all parties came to every committee meeting for three and a half years with their homework done, ready to do their jobs and speak on behalf of Canadians.
I also want to thank our clerk and our analysts, who have done a great job. I want to thank my vice-chairs as well.
All members of the Standing Committee on Health have done a great job.
