By unanimous consent, it was resolved, — That the House recognize that:
(a) victims of sexual misconduct and assault rightly fear that they will not be believed, that their actions will be trivialized, that their own responsibility will be questioned, that they will be judged negatively, that they will be intimidated, persecuted or let down;
(b) victims are courageous whether or not they report, immediately or later and with the means they are comfortable using;
(c) it is unacceptable that still today one in three Canadian women will be a victim of sexual assault in her lifetime; and
(d) the system is failing to protect and support the survivors properly;
and call on the government to set up a committee of experts similar to the one set up by the Government of Quebec, with the participation of the elected members of the three other parties represented in the National Assembly, to review and develop measures to benefit victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, and to restore their confidence in the judicial and extrajudicial system.
