Dear women & girls of #Canada
I hope you're paying attention to this very important message from #AndrewScheer & his #CPC

With this tweet, they are signalling that your safety & your life are not as important as the jobs of construction workers. #cdnpoli
Studies have shown that when large construction projects bring "man camps" into remote rural areas, there are impacts on those rural communities.

The Conservative know this. They don't care. They wilfully ignore it - and they hope you don't know about.

What PMJT said

“There are gender impacts when you bring construction workers into a rural area. There are social impacts because they’re mostly male construction workers. How are you adjusting and adapting to those?
What researchers have said

“When there’s a large-scale industrial development, when there’s construction camps that are co-located, we have documented increases in the rates of sexual assault, the rates of sexualized violence, the rates of prostitution, the rates of STIs"
Firelight’s 2017 report cites a 38 per cent increase in sexual assaults reported to RCMP during the first year of construction on an industrial project in Fort St. James, British Columbia.

38% increase! Think about that. #cdnpoli
The CPC have a long history of signalling - in various ways - that they DO NOT prioritize the health & safety of women and girls.

Remember this?
We need to pay attention.
We need to have grown-up conversations based on facts.
We need to be aware of the stats & listen to experts.

#cdnpoli #VoteWisely
It's important to be informed & to take steps to mitigate the negative impacts. The #CPC would rather ignore the risks & smear the PM.

Read all the way to the last paragraph. It is key.

These impacts are real. They have been well documented.

From the article:

"... anticipating “social impacts” is not only common sense, but a core duty of government."

In other words, PMJT would behave responsibly. Scheer likely would not - if the CPC tweet is any indication. #cdnpoli #VoteWisely
It's been highlighted by the #MMIWG Commission. If elected, will Scheer choose to ignore that report too? #cdnpoli
