Mr. Speaker, we have made our position quite clear on this and the Prime Minister has stated the government's policy.
The hon. member from the Reform Party talks about the consistency of their policy. Two weeks ago at the height of the hostage crisis when Canadians were held in very precarious situations we had talk from that side about Canada retreating from the theatre. Then it said its policy was not one of retreat but one of withdrawal. When pressed further, withdrawal meant taking everybody out, only to go back in with even heavier equipment, including F-18 fighter planes.
Talk about consistency; it is not there on that side of the House.
