Mr. Speaker, this is holding the government to account that says one thing and then does the other.
This incident undermines Canadians' trust in the government. We were told this would be a non-combat role. That is clearly not the case. We were told that our troops would be out of harm's way. However, the Canadian Forces say that Kabul is an extremely violent environment.
We were even denied a chance to debate and vote on this mission in the House of Commons.
Why did the government mislead Canadians on this issue?
