It is with great pleasure that I welcome and present you my website. You will find it both informative and interactive. Our various links will give you easy access to several information that will be very helpful.
Before I was appointed to the Senate by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in January 2010, I worked for five years as Chair of the Association of Families of Persons Assassinated or Disappeared (AFPAD). I founded this organization in 2004 with three other fathers who had also lost a daughter to crime.
This Quebec-based association acts on behalf of more than 563 families of murder victims or missing persons. It brings these families together and helps them effect changes to the justice system to make all Quebec families safer. AFPAD also brings the challenges these families face to the attention of public officials, departments of justice and public safety, investigators and judges. AFPAD is working tirelessly to bring about essential changes.
Following my appointment to the Senate of Canada, I made the commitment to represent and be the voice of these families. I am working hard to have the rights of victims of crime recognized and to ensure they receive more effective government support.
On behalf of all these families, thank you for supporting my efforts and, in so doing, the policies I stand for.
