Hon. Marcel Danis (Minister of Labour):

Madam Speaker, in the absence of the President of the Treasury Board, I will take notice of the question of my hon. friend. I can assure her that as soon as the minister comes back he will get back to her on that.

She will have a supplementary question, no doubt.

Mr. Danis:

Madam Speaker, on behalf of the government House leader, I would like to thank my two colleagues from the opposition who have co-operated in the passing of this bill.

Considering the time, Madam Speaker, I wonder whether there is unanimous consent for suspending the business of the House until 11 a.m.

Hon. Marcel Danis (Minister of Labour):

Madam Speaker, on behalf of the President of the Treasury Board, I would like to answer the question by my hon. friend.

March 19, 1993

Oral Questions

She knows, and the Prime Minister has stated it on a number of occasions, what the policy of this government is concerning sexual harassment. It is one of zero tolerance.

I support that. In a certain time in my prior life, I was responsible for implementing sexual harassment guidelines at the University of Montreal. I know what it is and I support the policy. If my hon. friend has any particular case where she feels something has been done which is not fair, she should bring it to our attention.

I can tell my hon. friend because she speaks in generalities that if she has questions or cases, she can bring them to our attention and I will transmit them to the minister responsible for Treasury Board.
