Question Period

September 26, 2014

James Bezan (parliamentary secretary to the minister of National Defence) replies to questions from Opposition leader Tom Mulcair, Liberal foreign affairs critic Marc Garneau, and others concerning the deployment of Canadian armed forces in Iraq; inquiries focus on the possible escalation of Canada’s role, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s offering of military aid to the United States, and the need for debate in Parliament on Canadian military interventions. The government also faces questions about unemployment and about reports that Germany may block a proposed Canada–Europe trade deal.
