Mr. Speaker, I am on the defence committee and we never once discussed this agreement before that committee.
The fact is, we have major differences with the United States when it comes to military issues. We have differences over nuclear arms, landmines, the international court and our Arctic sovereignty. The United States still has not recognized Canada's Arctic sovereignty.
Again I ask the Minister of National Defence why he enters into these agreements without input from Parliament and, for that matter, all Canadians.
