Mr. Speaker, last fall, the NDP asked clear and specific questions about the deployment in Iraq. The Conservatives repeatedly said that our soldiers would be training the Iraqis and would definitely not be accompanying them into combat.
Now, the Chief of the Defence Staff has confirmed that the mission has changed and that our soldiers are accompanying Iraqi troops to the front lines. The Minister of National Defence says that there are no longer any limits on Canada's engagement. That is not what the Prime Minister said in the House in the fall.
Why have the Conservatives kept the truth from Canadians?
