Mr. Speaker, we are all aware of the major contribution of Canadian soldiers in the past. That has nothing to do with the current issue. There was no vote regarding the Korean war. No one said our participation was not important. In some cases, there was a vote. Most of the time, there was not even a debate.
In our case, there has always been debate, since the Prime Minister's excellent initiative in 1993. We are pleased about this; we take part in these debates. Incidentally, I have proposed one such debate for tomorrow night. If members believe we need more evenings of debate, I am even prepared to offer a Thursday night and other nights to accommodate everyone.
