IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ Canada-Saudi Arabia weapons deal

Ms. Hélène Laverdière (Laurier—Sainte-Marie, NDP):  

    Mr. Speaker, with this government, it seems that everything is for sale.

    We all know that . Nevertheless, Canada continues to export weapons to that country and to others, such as Libya, that have very questionable human rights records. Canada is now the second-largest exporter of arms to the Middle East.

    Does the Minister of Foreign Affairs believe that Canada should export military equipment to countries that violate women's rights? Are we now a nation of feminists?
