Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
On the issue around violence against women, we know that in the face of the pandemic, the numbers are going up. Even at the best of times the situation is bad. In my community of Vancouver East, particularly in the Downtown Eastside, sex workers are particularly vulnerable. We're now even seeing people entering sex work for the first time. Much of this, of course, is tied to economic insecurity. The fact is that the government chose not to go forward with a universal direct payment. People who are in dire straits, people who live in situations of domestic violence, don't have the economic support to find alternatives.
Ms. MacDougall, if the government were to initiate the universal direct payment for all during the pandemic, and, I would argue, post-pandemic, would you support that?
