44th Parliament, 1st Session
Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby)
Madam Speaker, we have seen the government's reaction. It does not want to talk about these fundamental human rights issues. That worries me. We saw the same thing with military materiel exports to Saudi Arabia. Several MPs asked why Canada was supporting the possible violation of human rights over there. It is inconsistent. The government is always talking about the fact that it wants to support human rights, but it does not want to have that debate today.
What are the member's thoughts on the government's refusal to discuss human rights and take the necessary measures?
