WHEREAS the traditional family is the basic unit of society, and whereas the health of society depends on having healthy and stable families;

AND WHEREAS the status of the family is steadily deteriorating due to social, legal and financial pressures,

AND WHEREAS the federal government has initiated policies which are either detrimental to the family, financially and otherwise, or which do not take the family’s needs into consideration;

BE IT RESOLVED that REAL Women of Canada demands that a Royal Commission on the Status of the Family be established, with pro-life and pro-family persons chosen to be members of the Commission, in order to investigate and rectify the disadvantages presently experienced by the family, and to promote by every means possible, social and financial benefits for the family.
