Senator Jaffer spoke about the terrible plight of Yazidi women and girls at a protest action held at the women's monument, Marker of Change, in Thornton Park.
Jaffer strongly recommends that the Canadian government actively use the "Women at Risk" program to enable Yazidi women and children to immigrate to Canada from camps in Europe and the Middle East.
Jaffer urges all Canadians to please write or call your Member of Parliament to help draw attention to this great need.
