Mr. Speaker, there are a range of issues that need to be debated.
Will the government do more on humanitarian aid and protection? Are CF-18s really the most appropriate military contribution that Canada can make? What alternatives could be considered, including signals intelligence, reconnaissance, airlift capacity, medical support, training? Canadians deserve to have their voices heard and respected in such a very important set of questions.
Will the Prime Minister listen to the alternatives, or will the debate on Monday simply be window dressing?
