Mr. Speaker, let us just see if the government really is doing its job.
One of Canada's NATO allies, Turkey, has asked for help to protect its borders in light of a possible war in Iraq. It is requesting emergency consultations under NATO's mutual defence treaty.
After a weekend of dithering, our Prime Minister appeared to say this morning that Canada should prepare to help Turkey.
In light of the Prime Minister's statement, is Canada prepared to pre-deploy troops to Turkey?
