Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his inspiring presentation.
I would like to respond to the last point he raised. International co-operation is an important aspect for Canada. Article 1(3) of the United Nations charter, in particular, sets out this principle and this obligation to co-operate with other countries around the world.
International co-operation is important when ratifying international agreements, like the one we just discussed, that result in shared concerns. We have lost that in recent years under the Conservatives' leadership.
I would like to know whether my colleague is as concerned as I am about Canada's reputation on the world scene.
