OTTAWA — The federal government will announce funding of $3 million for a project aimed at eradicating female genital mutilation in West Africa.
International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau is to make the announcement of the four-year initiative on Tuesday, making it the first government project to target the controversial practice.
These are the same assholes who refused to call FGM “barbaric”.
Meanwhile there hasn’t been a single prosecution of FGM in Canada for what are no doubt reasons too nuanced for us riff raff to comprehend.
RCMP spokesman Sgt. Harold Pfleiderer said the national police force is in the process of developing internal policy on “honour-based violence, underage and forced marriages and female genital mutilation/cutting” to assist RCMP employees on cases involving these issues.
