Queen Praises Canada

Published torsdag 26 oktober 2006 kl 12.09
Queen Silvia in Canada

Queen Silvia of Sweden took time out from her first state visit to Canada in 18 years to focus on violence against women.

The queen met with Canadian experts on domestic violence and said she was impressed with the work Quebec and the rest of Canada are doing to combat what is a global problem.

Silvia said international governments and police must reach out to one another to combat violence and the trafficking of women.

The issue has long been a priority for the Swedish queen, who also took part in a round-table on youth drug addiction during what will be a four-day state visit with her husband, King Carl Gustaf.

Silvia told reporters that Canada has taken an active role in treating youth drug addiction and that other nations have a lot to learn from the North American country.
