Mr. Speaker, I absolutely refute the allegations of the hon. member. We have not changed our foreign policy. We have not flip-flopped on the red book. It is quite the contrary. We are delivering on our promises.
One of the main promises we made to Canadians-and the Prime Minister has said it all along-is to create jobs and sustain the Canadian economy. We are doing it. Despite the view of the hon. member we will work vigorously to promote employment and growth in Canada and create jobs. That is one aspect of our foreign policy.
By doing that it does not mean we are abdicating other objectives we have, particularly to promote and sustain those who are fighting for democracy and human rights in the world. They are not contradictory. Quite the contrary, the two objectives could go hand in hand and be promoted worldwide.
