Mr. Speaker, in the Prime Minister's 2007 throne speech, he promised “any future military deployments must also be supported by a majority of parliamentarians”. That is a direct quote from the Prime Minister. It puts his honour on the table. Now he is sending Canadian troops to join the war in Iraq without a vote in the House, without even a debate in this House.
Why is the Prime Minister breaking his own solemn promise to Canadians?
Why is the Prime Minister sending members of the Canadian Forces to Iraq without discussion, debate or a vote in the House?
