Mr. Speaker, if I may, at this point I would like to reiterate something I indicated earlier today.
The Liberal Party will not support the government's efforts to deepen this combat mission and expand into Syria. It is for good reason. The government is proposing an unfocused, unending combat mission for the Canadian Armed Forces.
The Conservatives have failed to clearly articulate the mission objectives, with the Prime Minister and the Minister of National Defence offering conflicting arguments. We believe that Canada has a role to play in the campaign against ISIL. The role must serve our national interests. The mission proposed by the Prime Minister fails to meet that test.
I am wondering if the member would agree with everything that I have just stated.
