The Official Opposition NDP and Liberal parties failed to get any clear answers about Canada’s future military role in Iraq, despite numerous questions in Wednesday’s (October 1) Question Period in the House of Commons.
At the latest NATO summit, Prime Minister Stephen Harper committed military personnel to a U.S. military advisory force in Iraq for 30 days. The deadline is up on Saturday, but it was only this week that the govenment confirmed 26 personnel on the ground in Iraq of the 69 that were supposed to be in Iraq.
As to the future, the Prime Minister said the government is weighing its options. The opposition parties are insisting Parliament must decide if there is to be a combat role in the future.
