Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer:
Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate.
This is a question that was sent to the Senate Liberal caucus. This question was submitted by Marcella Forden from Edmonton, Alberta. She would like to ask the Leader of the Government:
What role is Canada willing to assist with to ensure that the Rohingya people in the IDP camps in Arakan State are able to have access to medical aid, water and food? Things have reached a critical state, and yet no country is willing to take the lead to ensure their survival.
