Mr. Speaker, there are no Canadian military personnel taking part in the ongoing operations in Afghanistan at present. We have daily contacts with U.S. army officers. It goes without saying that decisions are made on a daily basis. I do not know when we will enter a new phase of operations. Right now, the United States is still relying on air strikes. It may deploy ground troops some day.
