Foreign Affairs committee I'd like a recorded vote.
Foreign Affairs committee Thank you very much. I think this has been a very important conversation for Canadians to hear. It has clearly shown the perspectives of the Liberals on this committee, and I would argue that they are a reflection of the government. For the statement to be made that our calling
