Mr. Speaker, Canada condemns these abductions in the strongest possible terms. This is just further proof that ISIL's endgame is to establish an Islamic caliphate across the region. We cannot allow this to happen.
It is with the utmost sadness and outrage that I should also report that ISIL fighters have abducted a hundred Sunni Muslim tribesmen near the city of Tikrit in Iraq. These abductions are outrageous.
This is why we have deployed Canadian Armed Forces and why Canada will not sit on the sidelines while jihadist terrorists threaten the world and, indeed, civilization itself.
