Mr. Speaker, without getting too much involved, the answer to the specific question is no.
We have a forum that has worked well in the last few months and is expanding and will meet again on Saturday. It is the troop contributing nations.
I have been at other meetings of this group in the past number of months. It will be a decision making body; it is a decision making body.
The hon. member quibbles about having a say not meaning consultation. We will be having a say, we are having a say. He obviously does not remember that when it came to the question of application of NATO air power Canada was very much in the forefront not just in consultation but as part of the decision making process and withheld approval until many of our key concerns were met. Those concerns were valid then, they are valid now and they will be valid in the weeks to come.
