Mr. Speaker, the minister's actions reveal his true intentions.
Next week, in Dublin, the international community meets to seek a ban on all cluster bombs, a ban that follows in the proud footsteps of Canada's efforts a decade ago to ban landmines. However, the minister is not even attending. He is sending a junior note-taker in his place.
Why is the government so indifferent to the horrendous effects of all cluster bombs, particularly, on innocent civilians?
